So sad to hear that :(( because that means I wasted about $17 to buy this book on buy.com.

I prefer having the book thinner/shorter because of the removal of all outdated information than having a thick/long book with uncompilable/deprecated examples.

IMHO, it's better not to publish the book in Apr 07, wait for a couple of months when Seam is "mature" (I don't mean that mature is buggy) enough, then update the book. I think I will use Spring (including Acegi) + JPA + JSF + Facelets + Ajax4jsf for this year then Seam & Spring can integrate and we have the best of the bests?
