In your latest release of the book, you are aware that chapters 2 and 3 are missing? I assume that's becuase you are re-writing them for Flex 4. But since the book's examples build on one another, It's quite a gap between 1 and 4.

Thanks

Re: Chapters 2 and 3
Strike this, I see you wrote about 2 and 3 in your release e-mail.

Excuse me, how can I get the release email you mentioned?

(I just got the MEAP as well.)

Re: Chapters 2 and 3
Hi all,

I know it's been a *very* long time, but Hello! Flex 4 is now complete--and almost completely rewritten. I've been really bad and totally stayed off of Author Online while I was doing this, since the rewrite was a total format change and took a brutal amount of work. So, sorry about not being responsive.

The old Twitter example from chapters 2-6 is now compressed into chapter 7 only.
Chapter 1 is half new, and chapters 2-6 are completely new. Chapters 1-6 now contain 26 self-contained workshop items, which include everything from small one-page examples, to a 3D rotating haiku to a Connect Four game. I hope you like the book!

The MEAP will be released sometime next week.

Thanks for your patience,
Peter
