Default New Edition of this book available

I just wanted to point out to readers here that there's a new edition of this book available:
Professional Ajax 2nd Edition:
You can take a peek at the code and features here:
http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...470109491.html
or at your favorite retailers including:
http://www.amazon.com/Professional-A.../dp/0470109491
Normally we don't like to revise a book so soon but with all the new Ajax techniques, libraries, and frameworks that have appeared in the last year, it was needed in this case.

As I wrote in the book's description in our site:
Professional Ajax 2nd edition adds nearly 200 pages of new and expanded coverage compared to the first edition. Some of the new topics covered here include:
  • Ajax Libraries including the Yahoo! Connection Manager, Prototype, and jQuery
  • Request Management with Priority Queues and the RequestManager Object
  • Comet push-based web systems and HTTP streaming
  • Maps and Mashups with Geocoding, Google Maps API and Yahoo! Maps API
  • Ajax Debugging with FireBug and Microsoft Fiddler
  • ASP.NET AJAX Extensions (formerly code-named "Atlas")
The forum for this new edition is here:
http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=307

And there are also a couple of excerpts from the new material posted online to give you a taste of the additions:
Ajax Debugging with Microsoft Fiddler
and
YUI Connection Manager

Enjoy!
