"Lifetime" updates to ebooks question.

Question about "lifetime" updates to ebooks. If I purchase for example the head first C# 2nd edition book, and the 3rd edition is released in a month or two, does that mean my ebook will be updated to that 3rd edition? Or strictly updates are by the edition I purchased? Thanks!

    Hello Mike,

    Lifetime updates are for the edition of the book you purchased, and not all subsequent editions. New editions are complete rewrites of a book, while updates are errata fixes, clarifications, and, occasionally, additional coverage on topics. We do provide you w/ an upgrade discount on subsequent editions when they are released, so we'll cover you one way or another.

    Regards, --Allen
