The latest released version of the cookbook is available online.

This link is advertised on the LOFAR wiki. The very latest (development) version of the cookbook can also be found on the USG repository.

The LOFAR software is continuously improving and, as a consequence, several procedures (and the cookbook itself) continuously change. In the following, we report an overview of the (recent) changes applied to the manual.
