Hello, will users who purchased the eBook/Hard Copy receive the Phoenix Framework 1.3 update, or will we have to purchase the book again?

I was going to ask the same thing.

We would love to but it is still too early to tell. We are finishing work on Phoenix v1.3 and once we put our attention back on the book we will have more news to share.

It would be great. Thanks.

A free update would certainly be nice, given that I bought the existing book on March 9th without realizing that it would already be out of date.

I am waiting the update or the policy to be clarified to purchase.

Thanks for your questions and interest in updates for the book. We plan to offer a significant discount to purchasers of the next edition of the book.

Cesar Jordano Moscoso Yarin, I would wait for the next version. Instead of giving you a free update to the book when Phoenix 1.3 comes out, you’re going to get a “significant discount”. Would you like to have to pay again to update to 1.3?

I would gladly pay full amount again for the v1.3 book.

Would gladly pay as well. Is there any update on when the v1.3 book will be released or early released?

Hey, I am also very interested into the book-update for Phoenix 1.3 :) Is it too early to ask for an ETA?

Oh wait - Isn’t this the update for phoenix 1.3? So the release is in late december 2017? Oh boy :(

Jose, just checking: I understand that you would charge for an update to the hardcopy. But I assume you’re not planning to charge for the update to the ebook?

Any update on this? I would like to start with Phoenix 1.3 but I don’t like the idea of learning on outdated material.

We will definitely offer a discount. We are not yet sure of the final form that will take.

We’ve not yet started updating the book yet because there were not enough changes to justify a new full release, but we’ll be starting on the revision soon.

While there aren’t a lot of changes in the overall structure (channels don’t change controllers and plugs are the same), there are enough subtle changes to merit a rewrite. Changes in ecto, schema’s vs models, all about contexts, new generators. Take this as a vote towards a rewrite.

Yep… it’s a balancing act. We’ll be starting soon, within a month or two.

When is the version covering 1.3 for this book coming out?

Bruce says that there’s no date yet, but they’re working on it.

Would there be something about creating JSONAPIs on the update? :)

After months working with elixir / phoenix and see how awesome the mantainers and the community are (Jose Valim himself replies you after few hours in stackoverflow) I have to say I have no (and no one should) problem with paying again for the new version of this awesome book. For the “outdated” stuff, believeme: read this book + watch this talk and you will know how to work with the newest release.

Sorry for my bad english :)

I would not mind paying for a new version of the book.

While this covers many of the topics I would like to see, it doesn’t touch on JSON APIs the way I would like. The code is a little dated, which means I’m debugging a lot of code as I go along.

Thinking more about new programmers than myself here. Would love to support the community with a valuable text like this.
