 An important part of the books and articles from the community's point of view, is which
versions of the components they cover. Hopefully we can outline these here.

  * My school-German is too weak nowadays to understand Torsten's book. It's niche is quite
clear, though whether a speaker of German and English would prefer it, I don't know.
  * I've yet to read Will's book from Prentice Hall.
  * I've never read a SourceBeat book, so have little clue on Jonathan's text. It's been coming-soon
for almost a year now it seems though, which has been dissapointing. The blog is interesting,
and suggests Jonathan will be focusing on a smaller set of components than I would expect.
One advantage of the SourceBeat approach is that we're promised updates to the text on a subscription
model. So when released, it should stay more up to date on versions of the components than
other books.
- * Vikram's series of articles at onjava.com were probably the first piece of text on Commons
as a whole to be published. His forthcoming book will join Harshad's as a standard style text
on Commons. I've draft-reviewed this one too, so more salt. The diffentiating factor for me
here is the author's style; Harshad's better suits inexperienced developers, while Vikram
is more efficient.

chapters instead of in the paper format.
