*Addresses key developments in programming language design:
+ Finalized C99 standard + Java 5 + C# 2.0 + Java concurrency package (JSR 166) and comparable mechanisms in C# + Java and C# generics
*Introduces and discusses scripting languages throughout the book and in an entire new chapter that covers:
+ Application domains: shell languages, text processing and report generation, mathematics and statistics, glue languages and general purpose scripting, extension languages, scripting the World Wide Web
+ Design concepts: names and scopes, string and pattern manipulation, high level data types, object orientation
*Updates many sections and topics:
+ iterators + exceptions + polymorphism + templates/generics + scope rules and declaration ordering + separate compilation + garbage collection + threads and synchronization
