Pascal de Bruijn wrote an extensive article about color management on Linux systems, covering basic explanations as well as the description of some tools.

Stefano Fornari has just released a new version of the book Digital photo development with darktable. Version 1.1.1 is a maintenance update. The release fixes a number of typos and other small editorial changes suggested by the community.
