I've updated the book to 2.074.0. I've updated all paper and electronic 
versions at all publishers. However, I recommend that you wait a week or 
so before ordering (e.g. from Amazon) so that you get the latest 
version. (The copyright and Preface pages should say May 2017.)

You can download the up-to-date versions here:

   http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/index.html

The fonts are indeed embedded in the PDF, EPUB, and AZW3 formats. You 
may have to experiment with configuration settings of your e-reader to 
enable the embedded fonts. YMMV. :/

Not just for learning D. I prefer it to the dlang.org documentation on a number of topics!

Has Amazon caught up with the new version? If so, is it just the paperback version or has the hardcover version also been updated?

It should take just a day or two anyway and Amazon's book preview does show the new content. (Copyright page has May 2017). Ali

Hi Ali,

The book is great ( got it recently ) but there are some things 
that may make be better.

I found the book a bit unwieldy ( hardcover ) version. With its 
700+ pages, its kind of hard to take anywhere. When i take it to 
work and back home, its like carrying a brick with me :)

Another issue that i noticed is that the current format makes it 
impossible to extend the book. For example, 87 in memory 
management the experimental unsafe memory management is not 
written about.  But if you want to make follow up chapters, it 
requires people to rebuy the
newer book.

Is it maybe not better to split the book into several more 
smaller versions? Making it more easy to carry or extend? Like 
Basic 1, Advanced 2, ...

And a last one: coloring... My vision is not exactly the best and 
i noticed that colored code is much more easy to read in books. 
If there the possibility for a colored ( more expensive ) version 
in the future?

Yes, there are things I would like to add (and change) but it's not clear whether I will ever be in a state of mind to carry on with such a task. It felt very natural while it lasted. I'm not sure anymore.

Yes and no, because all the material would always be available anyway.

Makes sense and others had suggested that as well. One complication would be different cover design for each book. (Even if not the general concept, the book cover image is for that specific number of pages (with some leeway)).

There was no option of color printing when I considered printers (or perhaps it was too expensive to even consider; I don't remember). However, if you can live with the pdf version of the book, the code samples are in color: http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/Programming_in_D.pdf It's the same content and format as the printed book, except it is generated from a different CSS file.

I remember some old C++ books from the past, where the cover was identical beyond the basic book was red, advanced blue. And the words basic / advanced.

Thanks. The Pdf works great on my tablet. Only have some issue with the epub ( only see page one and two ) but that can be my software.

I just got the paper back which has been upgraded to the latest version. I'm wondering if the hardcover version has been upgraded as well.

There is no way of knowing for sure but from my experience it really takes just 1-2 days. I'm confident that it's up-to-date at this point. Ali

I just got my hardcopy today from Amazon, and it's the most current version.
