This paragraph is a bit confusing:

Electron allows us to use cutting edge web platform features as it includes a relatively recent
version of Chromium. Generally speaking, the version of Chromium in Electron is about one to
two weeks behind the most recent stable release—which come out every six weeks. Electron
typically includes new versions of Node.js about a month after they’re released. This is
because one of the most compelling reasons to update Node.js is to get the most recent
version of V8. Electron already includes a modern build of V8 from Chromium. Electron can
afford to wait for minor bug fixes before upgrading to the latest version of Node.


I think it would be better as:

This means that on time top of being able to take advantage of Node’s module system, you can also use compiled modules with native extensions, access the file system, as well as to do a bevy of other things that are not usually typically supported in the browser environment.


Barring some kind of special circumstance—you’re building a chat client, for example—Electron applications work just as well offline as any other application.


That said, they’re there're different in a number of important ways.

In chapters 1 and 2 there are many, many typos and word confusions. I would be willing to point out what I have seen if someone is actually reading these comments. If this forum is just for readers to comment back and forth, the effort would be wasted.

Hi

Initially I was going to post comments about typos but from the Welcome post:
During the MEAP, we welcome reader comments about anything in the manuscript — other than typos and other simple mistakes

so I haven't bothered.

Hi everyone—I'm the author!

First of all: thank you so much for purchasing the early access edition of the book. Secondly, thanks for contributing. The book itself is still in the very, very early stages of development and will definitely be revised heavily as we go along.

As Dave pointed out, MEAPs are still works in progress. Manning has assigned a number of editors who—along with myself—will be working through the manuscript as well to hunt down typographical errors and ambiguous wording.

I'm going to work through your notes and apply them next time I get additional feedback from my editors and submit revisions. (In the mean time, I'm working hard on Chapter 7 as we speak!)

If you see anything else that's glaring, feel free to email me at hello@stevekinney.net so I don't miss it!

Thanks!

—Steve
