Plans for a New Edition of Effective Perl Programming?

I've been really pleased with all the great reviews that Effective Perl Programming has received over the years. The good sales are nice too - I'm still getting reasonable royalty checks.

I've been thinking of writing another edition for some time. At present I'm negotiating to do just that. Hopefully my work can be done by the end of the year, or maybe a little sooner.

Once I get going, I'll be posting bits of work in progress here. I will also, at some point, post the entire PDF of the current version. I may also ask for ideas about what to include. I think the rewrite will be somewhat different in its focus than the original.

I took your Effective Perl Programming Course back in 1998 and been the better for it.

The year-end is drawing close. Are you almost done with the second edition?

I have a copy of the original signed by Joseph in 1998 at a Perl Mongers meeting. I'll buy it!

My copy dating from 1998 is beginning to disintegrate. It's the only Perl book I need to keep around.

New edition - yes please!!

What about the pdf? Would be nice to have when on the road. I'd pay for it.
