Congratulations David.

I'm still using 9 and I'll wait for Apple to release a better LPX version than the actual before upgrading. Since the new Mac Pro comes out tomorrow, maybe we'll have some good news about LPX 10.1 soon. Let's hope so!

In the meantime, You've certainly encountered some of the numerous bugs present in LPX during the making of your book. Do you talk about them and give the reader some workarounds? Wasn't it a bit premature to publish a book about LPX since the actual version is known to be very buggy in many aspects?


Regards.

Thanks guys! :D

@Rene, All ".0" software versions are buggy, and 10.0.0 is not an exception to the rule, it just follows the rule. 9.0.0 was buggy when I wrote the Logic 9 book, and 8.0.0 was buggy when I wrote the Logic 8 book. Training material is typically written before the ".0" release (with a beta version of the software) or with the ".0" release. I never wrote about bugs, instead, I write around them. There are several techniques for that, and I have a line of communication with the developer team to know where the soft stands and what is intended and what is not intended. So if a feature is buggy I don't talk about that feature. If it works most of the time but is sometimes (albeit rarely) buggy, then I'll write about its normal behavior. So basically it adds a lot of work for me the writer, but the end result is transparent to the reader, who shouldn't suffer repercussions of those bugs.

Hope that answered your question!
