This looks like it will be a great book, but with HTML5 about to hit mainstream, I'd hope this would include a lot of the new JavaScript API specified by HTML5 -- WebWorkers, WebSockets, Local Storage, Offline Applications, Canvas, WebForms, etc. -- there's a whole slew of new API methods and events. Anyone know if we can expect that? I'd slam-dunk a pre-order if it's confirmed.

Captain, I have an advance copy of the book. It's not finished yet so I can't say for sure, but no, I don't think that will be the focus. This isn't that kind of book. It's about learning the intricacies of the Javascript language, especially from an object-oriented perspective.

The book does not focus on specific APIs. Rather, it's focused on giving you a sound knowledge of JavaScript, and techniques for dealing with cross-browser issues and other complexities, making you the best of JavaScript developers. Which will, naturally, help you understand how to use the JavaScript bindings to any API with ease.

Looking back it's more obvious that HTML5 features are a bit out of scope for this book. Thanks for the response!
