After receiving the following email on Oct. 12, I haven't heard a single word on the update. Have anyone else received a updated version of either the ebook or source code?

Dear ...,

Thank you for purchasing Spring in Practice through MEAP, the Manning Early Access Program.

This is a quick note to let you know that in a couple weeks the MEAP will include major revisions and updates to several chapters. The code is also being cleaned up and the plan is to finish the edits and complete the outstanding pair of chapters (Treating Advanced Web Form and Productivity Via Roo and Cloud).

As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions in the book's Author Online Forum. Feedback from MEAP subscribers like you helps us make better books. Thank you.

Nope, haven't heard a peep. This is the first MEAP I ever purchased, back in Jan 09, and almost two later, it's still not published. They should rename it to Spring in Theory, because in theory, we may see this book in our lifetime, but in practice, it's not so likely.
