I can't find any references to the versions of the libraries you are installing (e.g., p.19, p.25). This is crucial: many Manning books have code which is a year or two out of date, even at the time of publication. Even without this problem, new libraries obviously come along, many with breaking changes.

Good point! We've left out the version numbers upon writing, figuring we'd have to update things before long. We're in the last couple days of updating code before production now - here's a look some of what we've updated to:
  
    "react": "^16.2.0",
    "react-dom": "^16.2.0",
    "react-redux": "^5.0.6",
    "redux": "^3.7.2",
    "redux-saga": "^0.16.0",
    "redux-thunk": "^2.2.0",
    "reselect": "^3.0.1"

We will spell these version numbers out somewhere before we go to print.

*edit - just a note: no code needed to change as a result of these updates (including the move from React 15 to 16). Testing with enzyme needed a small update, but those details have been incorporated into the Testing chapter for the production release.

I couldn't find this list in version 8 of your book, nor any other references to the versions of the libraries which you used. I apologize if I have missed this.
