I presume you have been through the Java Tutorials.

Years ago I bought "The Definitive Guide to Java Swing, 3rd Edition" published on June 2005 by Apress. I found it very good and useful (for the level of knowledge on Swing I had in that time).

You say "on the latest Swing version". The mentioned book covers Swing up to Java 5. If you are a "beginner" about Swing, I am quite sure this book could be perfect for you and you should not bother about "the latest" version.
If you are very well versed and/or with good experience about Swing and you want to known the "latest" Swing version, I suspect you don't need a book .... it should be sufficient the official javadoc/tutorial documentation from Oracle.

I recommend "Swing 2e" by Matthew Robinson. It's not the latest Java (not even 5) ... I think 1.4 because the book is copyright 2003.

Anyway the examples and topics covered are excellent. However, this book may not suitable for Java beginners.
