What's Going to be in the New Edition?
There will be a lot of new material in the new edition, and I don't want to drone on and on about the new material. Some of the highlights include the following:
- Xcode 3's new features, including refactoring tools, code folding, and the Research Assistant.
- Interface Builder 3.
- A new chapter on Instruments.
- The version control chapter will use Subversion instead of CVS.
When Will the New Edition be Released?
I don't know the exact date, but I hope to have it finished this summer (winter for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere). I do know it will not be released before Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), which runs from June 9 to June 13. Apple is expected to release Xcode 3.1 and the iPhone SDK at WWDC. Because WWDC is less than two months away, it would be a waste of time to rush to release an Xcode 3 book, then put out a big update covering Xcode 3.1 and iPhone development. Doing so would also be a disservice to people buying the print version of the book.
