Do you have any plans on creating a second edition to your book? I loved the
first edition and would like to see the book upgraded to python 2.x. I would
also like to see more coverage of jython and unit/system testing.

There are plans to upgrade the book, but the schedule for it isn't finalized
right now.

I wasn't planning on doing too much on jython but will consider it. Putting a
section or chapter on unit/system testing is something I have been planning.

I've found its works best for me to co-develop a suite of unit tests to go
along with any code development I do in any programming language. In Python,
I find this even more critial due to the fact it is not strongly typed (like
for example Java).
