eBook at www.apress.com [1]. The printed version will be available from
select book stores in about 3 weeks, and is already available for pre-order

Congratulations! I got a copy even though I'm not really using Tango...
(although there some kind of "compat mode" going on with wxD for it)

Saved the planet and the trees and some waiting by getting the eBook.
Now onwards to actually upgrading my Mac version of Tango to "Frank".

That's fabulous!
But something has got to be wrong here.
The price of the ebook is only $10!?

I guess I'll just have to buy extras and give the others away.   And I 
don't even use Tango!

Congrats on the first D book!

Well, I got one book, but there doesn't seem to be a way to buy 5 
e-copies without going through checkout 5 times.  Ugh.

Actually IIRC the first D book was in Japanese, so Congrats on the first
D book in English, AFAIK.
