Omnibus v0.2 Released

Version 0.2 of the omnibus edition of The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development, as re-envisioned as part of The Big Book Reboot, is available to most subscribers. Those who subscribed after noon Eastern Time on March 18th will start getting the Omnibus next week.

This week, both EPUB and MOBI editions are available, though change bars probably are not available to MOBI readers.

From a content rendering standpoint, change bars have been extended to include code listings, so listings that change or are new will be flagged. This time around, all code listings have change bars, but starting with Version 0.3, only the new/changed ones will be marked.

This update adds three more tutorials, plus chapters on basic UI construction. There has been some reorganization of material, and a bit more Eclipse coverage than before, but nothing massive, so subscribers who have read through this sort of material in the original Guide will find little new.

Version 0.3 should be released in about a week. Tutorials will be on hold for a while, with more emphasis on the reorganized chapters and updated material.

If you encounter problems with the Omnibus or have other Omnibus-related feedback, please contact me at omnibus /at\ commonsware.com.
