Chad F.'s “Rails Beta” is announced a beta book (pdf) about Feb 1,
2006.

As a side note, I’m getting addicted to pdf books: I print them (I hate
reading on screen, but it’s great for searching), so I can annotate
them, highlight in yellow/red/green, glue/tape schemas, etc… at will
without feeling guilty. If only they would publish a list of changed
page when they publish a new version…

A friend of mines bought the paper version of the Agile Book, and came
to regret it: the paper is too thin, so you cannot really write in it or
use highlighter.

Yeah, that would be nice if they did that, or put those vertical marks
on the
side of the page where a change was made.

In the meantime, I get diffs by doing a Save As Text for the old and the
new
PDFs and then using wdiff or diff to compare the two text files.
