I don't know who told you this, but they were just wrong.
As you know, this was RunRev's first attempt at book publishing. There
was a steep learning curve, complicated by the fact that RR lost its
main publishing-knowledgeable staffer (Ro Nagey) in the post-MacWorldSF
changes that had to be made for economic reasons. So there have been
some slips and delays.
Part of the original deal as I understood it was that RR would prepare
the CD since they were responsible for the printed book while I was
responsible for the eBook, which, of course, has all the examples in it
Recently, Kevin and I have been discussing this issue a lot, along with
other members of the RunRev team. I have agreed to compile all the
sample apps into one place so that people who bought the printed book
can download them in one compressed file. I hope to have this done and
ready for download next week.
While it's clearly too late to *include* a CD with the book, the
original idea for the CD was to include a version of Rev plus the stuff
in my book. Since we now have only the samples and book code to
include, a CD would be overkill in any event.
Stay tuned. This will get fixed.
