Well, I haven't received my copy yet :). It was supposed to be out in time
for OOW, along with the Complete Reference: Electronic Edition, but both were
delayed during the printing cycle. The Advanced Oracle Tuning & Admin book is out -
it covers through 7.3. If you're an IOUG member, use the IOUG bookstore to
get a price break.
When the new book comes out, it'll show up on www.osborne.com. The code for the
book will be posted there as well (there aren't many code changes necessary
when upgrading to 7.3 from 7.x).
Also, Spanish and Chinese editions of most of the Oracle Press series are
available; contact the publisher for details.
