The Fusion Authority Quarterly Update, Issue 2, is shipping to subscribers according to Michael's article on the FA website. It's a packed edition - 120 pages of frameworks and OO information. If you're not already a subscriber (I am!), you really need to hurry along and subscribe to FAQU!

    He's not just a subscriber, he's our official curmudgeon. :)

    (and we greatly appreciate it as he really beat some of us into better articles - including and maybe especially me)

    Hmm, I can see where the article title came from, but I must admit I first read the title with a little alarm. Perhaps it was just me on a Monday morning?

    I think some of us veterans might still be a bit shy remembering a previous publication and how it really didn't meet publishing timelines. Myself, I am going to wait a bit to see what happens before I subscribe. No offense to the publishers, I'm just a bit wary!

    @TJ, what "previous publication" would that be?

    I'll take full blame for the delay. We were so focused on quality that we went far over our set page count and had to work down some. The issue was supposed to be 100 pages. It went to 150 pages and we were able to get it down to 120 without sacrificing any of the OOP/Frameworks content. We didn't even cut anything out of anyones article. There were some design and printing issues, but....
    Ask any of the authors (who survived) and they'll tell you that we spend a LOT of time with them editing their work to make sure it's as close to perfect as possible. This is time consuming, but well worth it. We're working on having a better time table of publication and a better 'eye' on article size.
    I totally understand your reluctance, but we've been in the community since before there has been a community and the journal isn't going away. We'll even be publishing when my wife gives birth. :)

    If by previous publications you mean the Fusebox book (we published the first one), that was a looooong time ago and we've come a very long way since then. The journal was only a month off, though it was still a month. We'll do better on the next issue. Watch. :)

    If I recall it was the CF Dev Journal (my memory for names is horrible)... Michael, you've always been dedicated to the community and done a great job all around, so please don't take any offense :) I am happy to hear you have once again decide to publish another CF mag!

    I was informed by my wife (the publisher and editor on the fusebox book) that it was on time.

    Oh and Tim, your journals went out a few hours ago with the latest batch and you'll be getting an email soon with the information on where and how to download the PDFs (free for subscribers). You've got a little over a pound of content coming your way. save some bathroom time to read it all. :)
