I have finished gathering the materials for the update to jQuery Mobile. There are significant changes in progress for a couple of the chapters, especially Chapter 4, "Theming jQuery Moble." Some of the API chapter are also significantly out of date--for example, jQuery Mobile no longer has a responsive layout API, so that entire section is going to be redacted. I will also need to redo the screen shots to reflect the updated UI. There are also errata that readers have kindly sent in which I will be including, and suggestions from colleagues. The list of things to change is quite long.

When I started this project a year ago I expected this. I'll always be playing catch up to the jQuery Mobile development team, not only because the framework is still fairly new but because mobile technologies are evolving rapidly. This is one of the reasons why I love working with mobile technologies, and jQuery Mobile in particular.

The good news is that I can make updates to the ebook and as they go into production everyone who already has an ebook license can download the new version. Eventually we'll have to consider doing a second edition, maybe when jQuery Mobile itself goes through a major version change or goes through a significant evolution.

Stay tuned to this blog and to my Twitter feed for further updates.
