    Default Both Qt 4 books delayed?

    Hello,

    According to Amazon.com, the book "C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4" has not yet been released and the expected release date is not known.

    Does anyone have any information on its release?

    The book "An Introduction to Design Patterns in C++ with Qt 4" was delayed until this September.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Google is you friend.
    You can buy now "C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4" at (at least as far as I can see): http://www.phptr.com/bookstore/produ...131872494&rl=1

    I just got an email from Amazon saying that I could pre-order the book and they will ship it when they get it from the publisher, which they said would be within a couple of months.

    It came to $41 and change.

    The publisher of the other book, which appears to be better, has not posted a release date.

    'C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4' is showing a release date of June 26, 2006. This is the book written by the authors of the Qt 3 book ... the one I'm currently trying to buy at Amazon. The publisher Printice Hall is showing a release date of June 21, 2006. This is frustrating. I guess I'll ask Trolltech since Jasmin Blanchette actually works there.

    'An Introduction to Design Patterns in C++ with Qt 4' is showing a release date of September 1, 2006. I may get it later.

    It was supposed to have been released this week, but Amazon has a later ship date as always. Btw, I have seen an early copy of the book, and it looks good. So go order one and make Mark and Jasmin rich!

    Will this book include electronic book version?
    (*.pdf, or *.chm)
    What about sharing?

    My copy hasn't arrived yet, but my understanding is that it will NOT include an ebook. It isn't listed in the cdrom description. A PDF may be available in the future.

    I just browsed the CD that came with my copy of the book (Amazon) and it does NOT contain either an ebook or a PDF.

    If you can get it, I'll "copy - paste" to msword, and create PDF, and trying to create chm, with Html2chm programm.

    We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them

    The only reason that the link wasn't deleted is that this book was published under Open Publication Licence.
