Is there an errata page?

Re: Errata?
Hi,

Because the book isn't in print yet, we're just updating the ebook content as we discover problems, rather than maintaining a separate errata page. With luck this means the final printed copy will be so perfect no errata page will be required then, either! smilie

If you have noticed errors or discovered things which don't seem to work, we'd love to hear about them - it all helps make the book better.

Re: Errata?
Alright. Somehow I was thinking that as a MEAP, the readers were participating in submitting simple grammar, spelling, usage, etc., errors too. It looks like you have other mechanisms for that.

Thanks,
Jack

Re: Errata?
We definitely do want error reports from users, but the main mechanism is these forum pages. Grammatical problems and typos should all be smoothed out during the copy editing phase, which happens after all the technical content is finalised. However, we're also glad to have reports by the forums of those sorts of problems so that we can fix them earlier.
