There appears to be a new version of the AWDWR 2.0 book

Does anyone know what updates were applied to the book?

The new book should cover the soon to be released Rails 1.2 version.
While the first edition of the book covered Rails 1.0.

Let me clarify my question. I bought this version of the book and
checked to see if the PDF version had been updated. It looks like a new
version was released last week and I downloaded the update.

What I’m wondering is, what arethe differences between the version
released in December and the one released last week?

It’d be great if the Pragmatic Programmers would publish changelogs of
their book revisions. Dave, if you’re reading this, could you chime in
on that possibility?

The changes are available on the errata page. (Or, to put it another
way, once a book has gone to print, any change we make will be
documented as an erratum)

I too am interested in what changed, but these answers don’t address the
question.

The original poster and I are talking about Agile Web D. with
Rails, 2nd Edition, version 2.0. That’s the second printing of the
second edition. (Check the inside cover of your book and you’ll note a
version number. Check out http://books.pragprog.com/titles/rails2/errata
and you’ll further notice all previous revisions in the drop-down list.)

Was my response to your original email most by the gateway?

If so, I said:

Just look at the errata page, and select the version of the PDF you
currently have in the drop down. The stuff shown in less-saturated
colors has been fixed between your edition and the current one.

(Basically, I fixed some errata while readying the book for the
second printing)

Those are some pretty ugly urls considering it’s a Rails related site.

Uhm…did you even look at the site? The site suggestion and user
signup are both Rails style URLs; how can you even tell it’s a
“Rails-created styles/scripts”? Scaffolding? Maybe he didn’t use
that (and by the way, scaffolding puts out “cludgy table-based
designs”). sigh

Anyhow, back on topic, thanks for the reply Dave. I was kind of
confused, too. :slight_smile:

Heh. That’s funny. I wonder if the sites even built on Ruby/Rails?
Judging
from the cludgy table-based design and lack of any Rails-created
styles/scripts, I’m gonna say it’s a PHP jobbie. Heh. Very nice.
