If you've been looking forward to his book on web scraping from the php|architect publishing group and are wondering about an update on a print copy, Matthew Turland has an update for you.

Several people have asked me the same question recently, so I decided to take a blog post to provide an answer. The question is, "When will 'Web Scraping with PHP' be available in print?" Answering requires a bit of background to paint a full picture of where things are now.

He mentions delays from the publisher, miscommunication regarding a box of the print edition making it to php|tek this year and his struggle to get in contact to find out more about them. He also encourages you, the patient reader, to send them a message about the book to voice your opinion.
