[ADV] New (content-complete) version of AWDwR available

Folks:

I've uploaded B1.15 of Agile Web Development with Rails.

Although the layout is still bad, and there are a bunch of typos,
and the indexing hasn't been done, the book is complete in terms
of content. Over the last week I've

- fixed all reported errata, and incorporated all pending suggestions
- updated the Security chapter
- updated extensively the Configuration appendix
- Added details of Unicode handling to the Active Support chapter

I've also reinstated the Web Services chapter, due to popular demand.

Again, I need to stress that the book is written on the assumption that the
reader has Rails 1.2 installed. As that doesn't yet exist,

YOU HAVE TO HAVE EDGE RAILS

for some of this stuff to work. Some folks like the following description
of working with Edge:

http://www.sitepoint.com/blogs/2006/07/11/installing-and-managing-edge-rails/

As usual, the update is available for free from

    http://books.pragprog.com/titles/rails2/reorder

Enter just two of the three pieces of information to identify your PDF.
I recommend using your order number and your email address, as these tend
to be be the most consistent.

Thanks for your support for this project. Keep the comments
coming in.

Well done! (For everything, not just the last item)

How are those gerbils doing? I was a bit surprised to read

   "Given the current backlog, we estimate that the time
   to create PDFs is about 8 hours."

...but in fact the email came through in about 15 minutes, and my download has just completed.

Thanks for this book, and for the inspirational talk at RailsConf Europe.
