I'm assuming you could not possibly have overlooked a basic Scala language construct in your book, but I don't seem to see any mention of symbols, i.e.

scala> var a = 'MySymbol
a: Symbol = 'MySymbol

Are discussions of symbols going to be added in future updates of the book? Maybe they are deprecated, or brand new to the language?

Hi JOSEPH!

Yes, it's in there now. It's in chapter 5, in the section on string literals. But that didn't make it into PrePrint v3.

'thanks

Bill
