In the preface there is a mention of the 3rd edition being included in the purchase of the 4th. Is that available yet or will that only be available when the book is completed?

Good question - I'm not sure about that. I'll ask my editor and get back to you.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to this book, and retroactively reading the last one. I've been involved in development with C# in one way or another since 2007 or so and am always on the lookout for supplemental reading material about it, and .NET in general! It's a bonus when I actually know who the author is (not in real life, but on stack overflow that is).

I too would like to know about this. I sent a message to Manning support the other day, but have not yet received a reply.

The previous edition is supposed to be automatically comped to you when you purchase the revised edition. Our technical team is investigating the bug. We'll make sure that anyone who purchased the Fourth Edition MEAP and is missing the license for the Third Edition eBook gets it added to their account. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we thank you for reporting the issue to us.

Top support from Manning.
