And what guarantees are there that what you write here is really correct?
Why wouldn't it be correct? I'm on the team so am in a position to know.
Because you write "the fundamentals of ReAction will continue to be the same; anything for OS3.9 ReAction should continue to work much the same as before"

You are safeguarding your own statements here (bolded), implying that there are no guarantees, and you have already made it clear in other posts elsewhere that there are components that may or may not be considered part of the "ReAction package" that you do not have access to.

So putting time and resources into writing a new book about these things, while it still is unclear and unknown exactly what will come with OS 3.2 onwards - remains rather pointless at this point.

Or you can just write that book yourself already?

Why ask a question if you are not going to believe the answer? Just to troll, I suppose.

No - you were the one claiming that this book seems rather pointless since the one thing you care about isn't covered. I suspect that the only person who could write such a book to your satisfaction, is yourself.

I was speaking more generally about the full set of enhancements in eg. OS3.5 and 3.9.
