Hello! I am interested in purchasing the WoW Programming book, but I have a concern about it potentially being out of date. I was wondering if the information in the book will still be relevant to addon programming in Cataclysm. Minor changes are not an issue.
Thanks for your feedback!

Of course the API reference is not 100% up-to-date due to the changed from patch to patch, but we keep the website listing up to date and try to keep the documentation as comprehensive as possible. As for the material in the book, only the occasional bit is out of date, and in those cases I've done my best to post the errata on the chapter page and on the errata listing.
The chapters that teach you the programming language, the progression through creating a substantial addon, and the advanced topics are all still incredibly relevant =)
