Another lurker in the list! Can any of you out there help this first timer?
I have to write a user doc. for old users of our software who will be requiring only upgrades. Both my boss and I feel that it doesn't make much sense (nor is it economical) to give them the complete new user doc as only enhancements have been done (on the software) and almost all the information they have (in the old user doc) is still valid.
What we basically need to tell them is about these enhancements. How do I go about it?
I'd be awfully thankful for any ideas, tips or advice from those who have and haven't done this before.
