|Updates for PhoneGap 1.1 and 1.2,The Beginning PhoneGap book was mostly written while PhoneGap 0.9.6 was the current version. By the time the book was in review, we made alterations for the 1.0 release, but while the book was being printed, Nitobi releases 1.1 and 1.2. Just recently, PhoneGap released version 1.3, with further support for Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry development on the Mac.|
Needless to say, there have been more than minor changes to the code and approaches to development with PhoneGap. In some cases, functions/methods have been deprecated, others have been added, and support for different mobile devices/operating systems added or removed.

|21||Error in Text,There is a missing step when setting up PhoneGap for Android on Windows Eclipse (pg.21). It should have this added (from phonegap wiki)...(You might experience an error here, where Eclipse can't find phonegap-1.0.0.jar. In this case, right click on the /libs folder and go to Build Paths/ > Configure Build Paths. Then, in the Libraries tab, add phonegap-1.0.0.jar to the Project. If Eclipse is being temperamental, you might need to refresh (F5) the project once again.)||1/4/2012|
