From wikipedia: The book includes several additional topics that are not covered in the current edition. New topics include * directed translation * new data flow analyses * parallel machines * JIT compiling * garbage collection * new case studies. IMO, this *really* makes me want to go grab a copy. Thanks for the heads-up Sean.

Harummph... I bought the Dragon Book earlier this year thinking that I was getting THAT book... At Amazon, they were advertising "new" chapters. After getting the book, I realized they were just referring to some partially complete chapters available for reviewing on the net. I was really annoyed. I really thought I was buying the new version of the book! :(
