Yes, sorry, yes, all my apologies. It's been a very tough year professionally and personally. We lost a family member and had another in the hospital for some time. I know not saying anything isn't the right answer (nor is not doing anything), but it's hard/weird to talk about. I'm back in a position where I can be making progress on this again and it's at the forefront of my mind. The second edition of the Yii book, along with keeping up with these forums and many other things, is just not getting done as it should be. Yes, I am most certainly going to finish the second edition. Yes, it's taken offensively too long. I can only offer my sincerest apologies and my aspirations to complete it ASAP.
Thank you so much for your miraculous patience and for your willingness to bluntly say "where the hell is the second edition?".
