There is a PDF. You can get it from the publisher, Manning, and I
believe it’s included if you order the paper version from them.
Of note, since Rails evolves fairly rapidly, and older books talk to
older releases. The second edition of AWDwR is the only one that’s
current with 1.2, and I’m guessing only the PDF will be completely
current by the time 1.2 actually comes out.
Luckily for “Ruby for Rails”, Ruby evolves pretty slowly The main
focus there is on the Ruby language, as it pertains to Rails
development, and I don’t think anything I talk about has changed
significantly between 1.8.4 and 1.8.5. I think all of the Rails
examples are upwardly compatible with 1.2, though you may see things
like @content_for_layout instead of yield.
