Ajax in Action was written quite some time ago. Any second edition available or in the works?

I am aware of another book Ajax in Practice by Dave Crane. Is this the second edition of Ajax in Action? If not, what is the relationship between the two books?

Thanks!

Re: Second ediition?
Hi David,

AiP isn't really a second edition of AiA, although it does take account of a lot of changes in the landscape in the two years since I write AiA. AiP contains more stuff on third-party libraries and toolkits, and less time on the basic principles and establishing an overview. If you want to know what Ajax is all about, then go for AiA. If you know what it's all about and want to turn out some code, then have a go at AiP.

HTH
