You don't have to explicitly update me about things. Before a book is
released I always search for the latest ones (I was going to do this
tomorrow anyways since tomorrow is the 'book freeze'. Way too cool book
coming up again ;). So the book will contain the latest packages as of
tomorrow (july 14th).
