Hi,
You're going to say I'm too impatient, but when do you think to release the book 3 update for xcode 6 ?

Book 1 is completed for iOS 8, we have an October 1 target date for Book 4, and Book 3 update will begin after that. It will take several weeks for sure!

ok, thanks for your reply.
I guess it's a big job to make this book up to date.
I'll work (again) on the first two books and the 4th when available in the meantime.
I must say they are great and written in a very educational way.

October 1st would be an awesome timing. After a fairly successful game made after going through your books, we just got a new idea for another math-game, this time more educational. We absolutely love the live code preview, and this will make development go so much faster. We did think to just figure out everything about Swift for ourselves, but when you book is coming in just a matter of days, we will of course wait. In the meantime, we are doing some more planning, which is good for any project anyway.

Hello Kevin, I'm just finishing up your first book and was wondering if you had an update as to when the update would be released.  I'm looking forward to working through it but figured its not worth the time to it start now.

I'm working on an update of Book 3 in parallel with writing the new Apple Watch book. I'm hoping for late January for the Xcode book (it's a big book with lots of changes).

All the best!
Kevin

Hi Kevin, just wanted to check in and see if you had a new ETA for the XCode 6 update to book 3. I enjoyed finishing books 1 and 4 a few months ago and have been on the fence about purchasing Book 3 before the update is released.

Hope all is well, and thanks for such a great series! While I'm not a non-programmer, I was a non-apple-programmer until reading your series and am looking forward to finishing it.
