I've finished the update to Chapter 1. I updated details about the new features of jQuery Mobile 1.1.1, mentioned the awesome new download builder, and provided more details on my development environment.

Chapter 1 is really just an introductory chapter, though. The big changes start in Chapter 2. I think I may have to redo all the screen shots in the book to reflect the new styles.

I also reworked the introduction to reflect the new versions and examples.

These changes aren't available yet, so no need to go download a new version of your ebook. I want to submit all the changes at once to keep the book coherent, and since we're talking fairly major updates to every chapter the editorial staff will want to give it a once over before regenerating the ebook. However, that process is quite simple: the book is basically a set of XML files in a SVN repository. Whenever I do a SVN commit I can command the repository to regenerate the PDFs by providing a specific tag in my commit message. It's pretty nifty.

I'll keep posting updates as I work through the changes, and once the new ebook is ready I'll definitely let everyone know here and on Twitter.
