Q. Will there be a 6th edition of Programming Windows? A. There are no plans at this time for a 6th edition of Programming Windows. The subject of Programming Windows is the basic 32-bit Windows Application Programming Interface (Win32 API). That API has remained stable for about the past 15 years. The sample programs in the 5th edition of Programming Windows run fine under Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Other books (not by me) might provide more information about programming for specific versions of Windows.
Consumer Preview/Release Preview ? LOL
@SteveRichter, Mark's book is not a programming tutorial, dont expect it that way. Maybe you need a book like 'Windows via C/C++' or 'CLR via C#' from Jeffrey Richter, if he is working on that.
Awesome, thanks for the heads up Ian. And thanks to ZippyV for that coupon code. $10 for the full edition was a steal but $8 is even better.
Purchased! I love that it's $10 and you get the new versions as they're released.
@Bas: I bought 3 books and got a 14 $ discount! I'm so cheap but it's probably a one time discount.
What is the eBook format? Is it something we can get at work here and pass around to a few od the devs?
pdf, ePub, and mobi.
As for the passing it around part, technically you may loan it to someone else if you do not retain any other copies, according to the oreilly site.
My download links are for PDF, ePub and Mobi. They're DRM free, so you can technically do whatever you want, but I'm not sure how that works legally.
@JoshRoss:It seems the FAQ got updated to mention the new book to be released.
I love how there are multiple formats. epub for my Nook, PDF for my PC.
Has anyone looked a the epub yet? How do the code samples appear?
Someday, I'm going to have to find the time to read all of these developer ebooks. LOL.
