    Sitepoint's rails book idea....

    I think it would be great to expand this already amazing book with some topics that for one reason or another were left out of the book such as Restful and security. I think you could add this stuff to the pdf so we that purchased the pdf can send feedback and then the book can be republished with the new version

    Hi Skyblaze, thanks for the suggestion. When we commission a 2nd edition for the book, we'll include updates to cover those topics.

    Simon, any idea when that would be? I'm thinking of picking up Ruby and the Rails platform just to play around, and given how I like to learn things the right way the first time (I got burned on HTML - never again) if I choose to order a SP book, I'd have to wait for the 2nd edition.

    We haven't got one penciled in yet. Given that a new edition would probably take around 6 months from start to finish, I think it's safe to say that it will be some time yet. I think it's fair to say that this book does teach you "the right way", even without an update.
