I searched for Ext JS in action in Amazon.com and found:

Before I go into the manuscript production details, I’d like to take a moment to thank each and everyone of my readers and supporters. I began this project late in 2008 and have had tremendous support from the Ext JS community, reviewers, family and friends. This has been an absolutely fantastic ride and I am grateful to all who supported me through the nearly two years.

Production Stats

RELEASE DATES: The pre-ordered print books will begin shipping 11/12 and will be released for sale from www.manning.com on November 15th.
EBOOK: The ebook will be released week of 10/31/2010.

I’d like to also publicly thank the Manning team for working with me and doing such a wonderful job!

If you are going to SenchaCon 2010, I will have five printed copies on hand to give out during my talk on 11/16. Hope to see you there!

Now that Ext JS in Action is complete, what will I be working on? Two things, actually – “Ext JS in Action Second Edition” and “Sencha Touch in Action”. If you are interested in co-authoring “Ext JS in Action Second Edition”, I’d like to talk to you.

After almost two years of work, I am pleased to announce that Ext JS in finally in full production mode and the final MEAP (Manning Early Access Program) version of the book has been released.

Manning has the following to say about the final release:

We’ve revised several Chapters and frontmatter and part openers have been added! Eager to have a physical copy of Ext JS in Action in your hands? It won’t be much longer! The book is off to production to get a final coat of polish, but for now you can fill in the gaps by commenting in the book’s forum. This update adds a few final pieces, like part introductions and the preface, and also tweaks almost every chapter with fixes from reviews and diligent MEAP forum readers

To celebrate this major milestone, Manning has agreed to let anyone interested in purchasing the early access PDF and print copy (due in stores sometime late September) at 35% off the price. This means that you can get this print copy + MEAP PDF for as low as $29.94(USD) or the MEAP + Final Ebook for as low as $17.87(USD). To take advantage of this offer, you must purchase the book at http://manning.com/garcia and use the coupon code extjs35au in the Coupon Cod field.

For any questions or comments concerning the book or the promotion, feel free to contact us at the Manning author online forums
