Versions 2 and 3 of this MEAP made some changes to the chapters which were provided in version 1 (chapters 1-3).

As an aid to readers who might have already read these chapters is it possible to somehow give an indication where major changes to updated chapters were made? Typos and minor restructuring etc. need not be described, but it would be good to know of the significant changes.

Obviously this applies to future MEAP versions, and to all MEAPs not just this particular book.

Yes you are right.

Version 2 was special because Spock released 1.0 so the appendix had to change (installation instructions). Everything else was unchanged.

For Version 3, I already posted a message with the change log. It is as you say. Chapters 1-2-3 have only minor updates, typos and the addition
of colours in the code listings. The content is the same.

So with version 3 you just need to read chapter 4 which is new and ignore the previous chapters if you have already read them.

I will transfer to Manning your request regarding the MEAPs for the other books.

Thank you for your feedback.
