This is our final beta with new material—-we’re sending the book off to copy edit and indexing. In this beta we include chapters that look behind the scenes with “Under the Hood” and “Performance Tuning”. Please note that some downloads of beta 4 inadvertently included early versions of these chapters and the introduction.

This beta includes two new chapters. One is on using Core Data in a distributed application. You learn to set up the server and the client to synch your data in a local network. The second chapter describes using Core Data with document specific parameters and settings in a Document based application.

This beta includes a new chapter on Core Data and the iPhone. Wait a minute! The iPhone doesn’t support Core Data. That’s true (at least for now) but Marcus shows how you can still leverage Core Data during your development process to design the data model that you’ll use on your iPhone application.

This beta includes a new chapter on Core Bindings. Bindings are a collection of technologies and techniques that communicate updates between your model and your view objects. You’ll find that this chapter explains much of the magic that enables Core Data. In addition, Marcus has updated the material in response to the errata you have submitted.
