Yesterday, Roberto Ierusalimschy (one of the Lua authors) said they canceled his contract for a new edition of Programming Lua and the publishing of many other books.
O'Reilly is shifting? Where to?
We publish a lot with a little. As brian suggested, I couldn't justify the resources necessary to edit, produce, copyedit, and publish the summaries based on the amount of people who read them. Thus I made the choice to stop publishing them to free up all of our time to work on other projects.
We'll continue to point to them on Perl.com (though the project to revise our Atom feed reader is still in progress, so it could be another week or two).
With the increasing popularity of World of Warcraft [worldofwarcraft.com] and the fact that the scripting language there is Lua, wouldn't this be a good time for Oreilly to publish a new Lua book?
