Hi there,

With the recent changes that have been made to the Play framework since the book was written,
is there a plan to have it updated?

There are quite a few differences now, with 2.4.
And there are more significant changes expected with 3.0

Thanks!

I'm interested in any sources that would help. I just found this book, and Play 2.5 is out. There's quite a few differences, so walking the examples is difficult.

For example, should I get Play 2.1 and learn from the book? Is the example code on GitHub up to 2.5 so I can replace the code with that and still get the basics from the book? Are there other suggestions of getting the most out of a book I just bought that seems woefully dated?
