Dear Manning,

Could you please supply us an update on this book? Who is the author now? When should we expect a new revision?

Thank you.

Agree. The book has been in development for ~2 years. It will be released in January 2018 according to the book's page in Manning. However, I highly doubt this will be the case since there has been no progression whatsoever. Any way we can ask if its going to get finished or get a refund?

I contacted Manning and received this reply:

This title is not dead. We have brought on a new author to complete this.

I'm slightly concerned that functional programming may be unfashionable again by the time this book is published. smilie

Seems there should be some sort of communication by the new author, whose name is not mentioned yet. Will the same TOC be followed? Any revised estimates on completion of the book. etc? The Combinators and Data Stream Programming chapters would have been very useful right about now.

Update Please, Please, Please
I exchanged my MEAP copy of this book for something else. I'll wait for some visible progress OR for completion before I buy it again. The management of this book reflects badly on the whole MEAP program. Please. Even quarterly progress reports would be a step forward.
