Looks as if the fourth edition of TIJ should be out soon. My Amazon pre order says the end of February. According to Bruce's site he will not be offering a free on line version this go around, but the first 7 chapters are down loadable. As Bruce states on the intro pages, in addition to the new SDK 1.5 information, he has spent considerable time rethinking the manner in which the material is presented. So far, based on the preview chapters, I would say he has done a great job of making an informative book easier to digest.

Here's the link to the sample download (200+ pages pdf):

Some years ago I tried TIJ out and decided it wasn't for me (I was just starting to learn programming). Now I'm curious to see whether I can enjoy it. "Easier to digest" would definitely have been on my wish list back then. Just glancing at the sample, it does look dense with text, and I tend more and more to prefer visual discussions...
