Patterns and best practices always remain the same, don't they?
So the book is still relevant for the patterns part. If you are talking of the API, then its always recommended to refer the most recent edition of the book.

The patterns do, but not always our attitude towards them.
Singleton, for example, is now generally frowned on, although it's always worth reading both sides of the argument.
I believe that Erich Gamma has said that if he were writing the Bible again today, he would probably have left Singleton out, but I'm afraid I can't find the citation.
Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
