Oh yeah .... Scott Hanselman beat me to the punch, but Mission “Build Biggest Book Possible” has been completed! Our Professional ASP.NET 2.0 book from Wrox just had to get bigger with all the cool stuff we wanted to add. 300 new pages! So big, that we could only offer the book in hardback because they don't make bindings big enough to handle all the pages (~1,700). Its called, Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition (because it is just so special). :)

Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition

And as was stated by others:

Here's a brief list of what's updated and new in this new edition.

FOUR completely new chapters:

  • Introduction to the Provider Model
  • Extending the Provider Model
  • Localization
  • Instrumentation

TWO new appendixes:

  • Migrating ASP.NET 1.x Projects
  • Using Atlas

...and dozens of additions throughout all the existing chapters, including:

  • Class Designers and Open Test Bench
  • Build providers
  • A More Complex Callback Example
  • Uploading multiple files from the same page
  • As an example, in Chapter 11, DataBinding in ASP.NET 2.0 these changes:
    • Added SqlDataSource Configuration Wizard to add optimistic concurrency
    • Added SqlDataSource Events, Using the SqlDataSource with Oracle, AccessDataSource Control
    • Added GridView events that fire when the data binding occurs
    • Added Using the TemplateField Column in the GridView Control
    • Added Using the TemplateField's EditItemTemplate
    • Added Expressions and Expression Builder
  • Using Oracle as Your Database with ASP.NET 2.0
  • Added Generating Custom XML from SQL 2005

That's the list up through about the first 1/2 of the book...there's a pile more...

And there's an added DVD which is the Visual Studio 2005 Professional 180 day trial, and there's an added CD which contains more than 1000 pages of selected chapters from other Wrox .NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0, VB 2005, C# 2005, and SQL Server books.
