IDEA In Action Book?

Has this book actually been released? I ordered it from Amazon about 2 months ago and still haven't seen anything.

On Amazon it says that it is supposed to be released in October 2005 (yep, that's already passed) but it also says "This item has not yet been released. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com."

What's the story?

Thanks!

No.

Since it's not released :).

but it also says "This item has not yet been released. You may order it now and we will ship it to
you when it arrives. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com."

On my wish list Amazon.de is saying that it will appear on: "30. April 2006"

What's the story?

If I recall well, IntelliJ IDEA 4.5 was the target, than(not quite so long ago) they changed the
text to "version 5.0." :).

IMHO they should really wait a little till the Demetra roadmap is "established", and make it Demetra
ready. Considering that this is not a "live book", this would be a smart move since it already took
so much time to bring the first english book about IntelliJ.

The number of books for Eclipse is incredible, and there's no book store that has IT books where
there aren't at least a few of them.

Ahmed.
P.S. IMHO for IntelliJ it would make much more sense to bring smaller books like those from the
pragmatic series like this:
http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/starter_kit/utj/index.html
Let's say:
Pragmatic Refactorings/Intentions for Java with IntelliJ (Dave, interested? ) :)

or for Demetra the equivalent of this:
http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/starter_kit/auto/index.html
but with the new Demetra build server :).

I second this post.

Personally I will probably not benefit from such a book as much as an
IDEA novice, but it's hard to get a new recruit up to speed when there
is no book.

I know, there are tutorials, PDFs, etc. but I would still like to get a
couple of copies to have for people who come here and need more than the
on-line material, as it would save me personal time I need to spend on it.

Thanks,
Amnon
