This release… does not add quite as much as I had hoped for. That being said, it includes:

  • New coverage of “jank”-busting, including coverage of quantifying jank using gfxinfo and systrace

  • Coverage of using SSL, including trying to defeat man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks

  • Expanded coverage of Maps V2

  • A bit more coverage of locations (this chapter will undergo a series of improvements over the next few releases)

  • Fixes lots of errata and adds other minor improvements

In terms of the book formats, I have constrained the maximum image height on the PDF versions, to reduce the number of pages that have a screenshot+caption and nothing else.

Version 4.7 is planned for early April.
