501 Backgammon Problems July 2017

I was searching backgammon books online and saw '501 Backgammon Problems' for pre-order to be released July 2017? What if anything will
be different from the 2017 version to prior editions?

Yes. I went through the book and updated about 35 problems and explanations to conform with XG2 rollouts.

Has the revised edition been released yet? If not, any sense on timing?

Yes, it has been released. I pre-ordered on Amazon and got my copy in the first week of August.

Re: 501 Backgammon Problems July 2017

I just ordered the 501 backgammon book from a Dutch online store today.

I always thought I had the second edition, and looked forward to the 35 new explanations. But I just checked it and saw I own the 1st edition I believe, with the blue cover (the purple cover was 2nd edition?).

So I wondered if there are any changes between the 1st and 2nd edition too?

Except for the cover, there were no changes between the first and second editions.
