Is there a summary of changes from previous edition? Is there more emphasis on writing tests before developing functionality?

Thanks.

Dennis:

There’s a list of changes at the start of each beta release.

I’ve tried changing the tutorial to be test-first, and quickly removed it: it really got in the way of describing the stuff we actually wanted to cover–the Rails features.

Dave,

Thanks for the response. I understand the need to stick to the main topic when writing a Rails tutorial.

Can you recommend a book that covers test-first development for Rails? Maybe a Pragmatic Programmers book?

I looked for a list of changes, but couldn’t find. Is the list of changes available to those of us that have not purchased the beta release?

The big change is that the book is updated to Rails 2.2.

As for a testing book: we have an RSpec/Cucumber book in the works…
