Head First Java update question

I've purchased all the Head First books and find every one of them invaluable - took the SCJP exam for 1.4.

However, to update myself with Java 5 knowledge, I would prefer not to have to buy the entire second edition of HFJ. Do the authors plan to come out with a mini upgrade-guide by any chance? That way I could afford to buy the next new HF book

Hi Tom, you might want to check out this discussion - think it might answer your question.

Cheers,
Pauline

ps Here's a review that talks a bit about the new edition and which parts of Tiger are in HF Java.
