I've just uploaded a new revision of the PDF of Agile Web Development
with Rails (2nd ed). It fixes all reported errata, and brings the content
in line with changes made to Rails since the book's release (so you'll
see that the section on Observers has changed, as has the section on
setting session options).
As usual, the update is available for free from
Pragmatic Bookshelf: By Developers, For Developers
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.
I'm thinking to buy also the pdf (got the printed about two weeks
ago). It's amazing, almost - i say almost - perfect. The updates would
be handy for people like me who are new to rails and can't find the
time to check both the updates (from the rails team) and studying the
book / practicing / writing code at the same time
-Yeah probably i will get it too
-P.S. (although it may be more important than the previous): I think i
found some errors in the book. At least when i try them they don't
seem to work, although i found some workarounds... One would be on
page on page 555 on the upper part of the page, file "pragforms/app/
views/user/inplace_demo.rhtml". The "User.user_columns" didn't worked
for me; changed it to "User.content_columns"
Nikos, the paper is in printed form and can be changed by doing
another run at the printers. Also, there's an errata which should
address most of the issues that you see in the paperback.
Furthermore, if you're looking for something up to date, then I would
highly recommend getting a copy of the PDF.
Have a look at the errata list for your version of the paper book (the version of the book can be found on the copyright page, and the errata list at Pragmatic Bookshelf: By Developers, For Developers). If your errata can't be found in the list, and if the program fails with the downloaded code from our site, please do report it.
If you have the PDF version, you can report an erratum by clicking the link at the bottom of any page.

Thanks a lot for the errata list Dave n Conrad ! These are really
I think i'll post some thoughts for newer versions in the form when i
find some time Keep up the good work, i can't wait for the new
version of recipes too
Good night everybody,
Just got the book in the mail yesterday
I love how all the information is update to date and current. Great
If we bought the printed book, is there a way to get this update?
Yes: look inside the back cover for instructions on getting the PDF at the combo pack price.
