I don''t think there is a difference betweent the first edition and the second edition all be it that the second edition probably has some bug fixes and a new cover.

As for when the second book comes out who knows they keep on putting off the release date. If you go to Lamonthes website he still has done that hes just starting chapter 8. But that has said that for a year now.

Hope this helps

I just bought 2nd Edition and it still uses DirectDraw. There''s been updates, such as typos being fixed, teaching about programming in 16-bit mode instead of just 8-bit, talks about the newer OSs. Nothing major, but it costs about $20 more than 1st Edition. I got a good deal though, through Chapters.
