I have bought "Monadic Design Patterns for the Web" and received version 0 dated August 15, 2012.

When are we going to receive an update for the book (it's almost 5 months now since then...)?

I agree that an update on the status, at least, would be very welcome.

Hi Thomas,

Had a meeting with Greg this week. He's working on the book and we're planning a new PrePrint mid-February.

Any new update coming soon given that the second prePrint never seems to have occurred?

The second PrePrint was released, but with not very much new material, so I didn't notify the users via email. I'm traveling this week. Next week I'll get together with Greg again and see where this project is at and post here.

Any update ?

The estimated publication date has passed and no substantial content has been provided for so long (years actually).

It would be nice to at least know there is some substantial progress on the pipe.

We're just two weeks or so short of two and a half years since this was funded on Kickstarter. I know Artima doesn't have a direct obligation on this, but it would be nice to at least find out if Artima is still working with Greg on this book. My sense right now is that everything has gone dead. I'm really hoping that's not the case, but it's hard to read much else into the lack of updates.

There has been pretty much no progress on this project for a long time now. I had a meeting with Greg a couple weeks ago, and he agreed to have an update such that we can release another PrePrint on August 23. If anyone wants their money back I'm happy to give it (for the PrePrint, not the Kickstarter, as I had nothing to do with that), but I'm going to stick with it a bit longer.

Bill, fair enough -- I appreciate your efforts, and Greg's for that matter. I know this has probably turned into a huge time-sink in some ways, but having the transparency is important. Personally, I'm not interested in any refund (of course, I was a Kickstarted funder, so I'd have to work that out with Greg anyway). I just really, really want to read this book in a finalized form. I was lucky enough to, at least briefly, be involved with some of the review process Greg did a while back and I was very excited by what I saw and learned in the process. I know the prePrint has been available for a while, but I've put off reading more given the time commitment for learning this material in-depth. I'd rather wait for something more complete before doing that. Hence, my own reasons for constantly requesting updates are borne from pure excitement about having the book in my hands one day down the road. I'll pass it on myself, should the chance arise, but please, if you talk to Greg again in the near future, let him know that at least some of our frustration is not about the (apparent) lack of progress, but about our desire to consume what he's been teasing us with for so long. That's my reason, anyway, I don't know about the others.

:~)

I don't want this project to die.

I am interested to read what Greg writes. I am willing to wait. I just hope it's not more than a year ;)

HI Bill, is there any update on this? Should we be expecting the update tomorrow as planned?

Yes! Greg submitted some nice updates of the first three chapters, which I'll release today, though it will likely be late tonight.
