Thanks for that, it is a shame that Unity is changing so fast in some ways as I
suspect they will want the book ASAP, but the latest book only covers 11.04,
and I suspect 12.04 (due in June) will be notably different - there have
already been noteable changes in 11.10. I guess that's the price of the printed
page not being able to keep up!
