Is there any plan for an updated version of "HTML5: Up and Running"?
Before Mark Pilgrim withdrew from the (online) world, he was working on a chapter on web history manipulation, which did not make it to "HTML5: Up and Running" (though it is available online in the state he left it), and he had mentioned working on a chapter on Web workers, at least.
Thank you for your interest in a new edition of HTML5: Up and Running. It does not appear as if we have a new edition planned. We do have other books on HTML5 available that you might find useful: http://oreilly.com/css-html/index.html. Have a great day!
