I was just curious if there is likely to be an updated version of this book for Blender 2.6?
It looks exactly like the kind of resource I've been looking for but have these areas of blender changed enough to require an update? Or would the current edition of this book still be applicable and easy to follow?
Would also be great to see some info on the new ocean simulator.

Any thoughts?

I'm not going to write a second edition of this book per se. Rather, I'm folding most of the relevant content of this book into the second edition of Mastering Blender, which I'm about 3/4 of the way through writing now. So Mastering Blender 2nd Ed will be considerably bigger than the first edition, and contain much of the content from BTAS.

Unfortunately, at the moment I'm afraid I'm not planning to cover the ocean simulator. There's so much other stuff to cover, and I haven't really looked closely at the ocean simulator myself (it hasn't been a priority for me among all the other new features that I really want to use for my own work).

As for whether the first edition of BTAS would be useful for the latest versions of Blender, all I can say is that it would probably be better than nothing, but a great deal has changed. If you can wait, I'd suggest holding out for Mastering Blender 2nd Ed.

Hope this answers your question.

Thanks for your answer Tony!
I will look forward to your next book - a good idea to combine the concepts!
I personally don't have any need for the ocean simulator either at the moment, and was more just curious.
