Not off the top of my head but by actual commits. :)

One major change that I can see is @property being discouraged.

Ah it's there - gotta remember that place if I want to make corrections. Good book - It's the one that got me up to speed with D before I was commited enough to pay for anything.

Now while I'm talking, I'll tell the one error I have already spotted, in the ranges chapter. It claims that std.range.generate calls the underlying function on front, not popFront. This used to be true long ago, but nowadays the call is done on popFront and the call result is cached for front.
