At long last my Deploying Rails Applications book is done!

So after being in the works for almost 2 years now and after going through many rewrites as Rails deployment tech has changed, my book is finally done! I just have to thank all of my coauthors who put in tons of work to get this thing as polished as it is now. Especially Bruce Tate and Clinton Begin, thanks guys!
New in this release is the chapter on Apache and Nginx scaling as well as a performance chapter. ALso included is setting up your own Xen installation and setting up Mysql Master → Slave and Master → Master replicated databases.
If you were holding off on getting this book until the advanced content was in there then now is the time to snap it up. This is the final beta release and the book will be going to print fairly soon. I really like the way the book has come together and I think it is a wealth of knowledge about deploying Rails applications.
\m/ Yay! Writing a book was a lot more work then I thought it would be and I could not have done it without my wonderful co-authors and all of the great feedback from the early beta readers.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback. You can grab your copy of the book here:
