Great document - especially useful if you already 'kind of' get the idea of how the files for a component fit together.

While working through this I noticed that I was getting 'deprecated' log errors on the JRequest::getCmd('task') function call.

It looks like that is in common use in all of the built-in components so I'm not sure why I am getting this logged as deprecated.

Do you know if the listings in the book are available for download? I checked with website but couldn't find them

... it would be a great addition since cutting and pasting from the pdf doesn't work well when there are page breaks in the listings.
