Here's another status update on the books.

I am done with the C# book, and it is still on schedule to be available at the end of March.

I am in the final revision stages with the VB book, so it is still on schedule to be available mid-April.

Since posting the beta code, people have pointed out a couple bugs (which I've fixed), one bug which can't be fixed without breaking the book (so it will be fixed later - and it isn't a show-stopper anyway) and a few feature requests (which will obviously come later).

I expect to be able to put the final version 2.0 code for both books online around March 13.

I'm also working with Magenic to have them host a new online forum. The plan is to use Community Server 2.0, hosted on a server at Magenic and most likely available through forums.lhotka.net (though that's not for sure at this point).

So the next few weeks look to be exciting (anticipated):

March 13

CSLA .NET 2.0 code available

End of March

Expert C# 2005 Business Objects available

End of March

New CSLA .NET forums available

Mid-April

Expert VB 2005 Business Objects available
