Book 0.67

A bit more copyediting is done, this time to the FILES chapters. So I'm about 150 pages into the book.

The FILES chapter focuses largely on the SkyDrive app and associated file picker interface and will need to be updated for the switchover to OneDrive. This isn't as simple as a global search and replace for the term "SkyDrive," since we'll need to address the change and of course some users will see SkyDrive in the UI for some time to come. More problematically, many screenshots will need to be reshot as well.

The question is whether this change happens for the 1.0 version of the book or waits for a 1.1 (or whatever) release that also covers the Update 1 changes. My gut tells me this will have to happen for 1.0, so I've added to the to-do list. (The Update 1 changes may simply be included in 1.0 a well, we'll see how that goes.)

For now, I'm leaving the SkyDrive references as they are. That will be changing one way or the other.

Feedback is always appreciated. More soon.
