Wee update to “The Yii Book” soon

June 19, 2016

I’m about to go offline for a couple of days (for personal reasons) and was hoping to get an update out beforehand, but it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. (And, as is the way with such things, if you try to do something computer-y when you have no time to deal with any complications, that’s exactly when the complications happen.)

In any case, apologies–as always–on it being so long since my last update. Chapter 13, “Using Extensions”, was a pretty brutal update for Yii 2 as no Yii 1 extension works for Yii 2. So I had to reevaluate what extensions to cover, learn enough about them, etc., etc. Also, Chapter 20, “Working with Third-Party Libraries”, covered Elasticsearch in the first edition, but that’s now possible with a Yiisoft extension, so it got moved into Chapter 13 (and rewritten).

But Chapter 13 is done and I’m a bit past that and will get out a wee little update as soon as I’m back online. I also updated all of the errata in the book and on the website and replied to those people that emailed about them. (Big thanks to people that do so; I really appreciate it!)

Moving into the home stretch!
