When will the next version of this book be out with the latest corrections? I would very much like to purchase it.

Thank you,

Hey Shannon -

HFJava, the tiger edition should be out in February... maybe, just maybe in January, we're almost done!

Hi Shannon,

Tiger is the top secret code name for the latest version of Java, JDK 5.0. Here's a little info from Sun about naming.

"Head First Java, the tiger edition" will take the new version into account.
