The book is doing well.

We are about to send the first bunch of chapters for the 1st type setting.
All the chapters have been copy edited, tech edited and is currently being proofed before put into type setting.

We will have a couple of more rounds of proofing the typeset chapters to make sure its all in order.

We are able to put in last minute changes and other minor changes.

So this is also last call for any suggestions you may have about the book.

And yes we will do a new MEAP before the book will go into print.
I dont have any dates when this happens.

Re: Status of book
The 2nd. ed. of the chapters is currently being type set. Currently chapter 1-9 is done.

The plan from Manning is as follows:

Camel in Action is now in the final stages of proofreading and layout and will be going to press shortly. All 14 chapters and 5 appendixes in this MEAP update have now been copyedited and tech reviewed, but there is still time to post any final corrections and comments in the Author Online forum!

The final ebook will be released in early December and the hard copy will be published in mid-December.

Re: Status of book
We are working on final details such as the back cover.

The type setter is setting up the 4 ed. of the material which is expected to be the final.

Martin Krassers Akka 1.0 API update is incorporated so that appendix is up-to-date.
