Aaron Reed's Creating IF with Inform 7 in a 6M62 world

hi folks,

I’m teaching myself Inform 7 again, and hope to actually do something with it this time. I understand that the 6L releases changed enough things to make some things in Creating IF no longer true. And I’ll read the changelogs myself, but I hope someone out there might have advice to share about how to best recognize the bits where the book might be steering you wrong (compared to the modern landscape), or how there’s now a much better way to do a given thing.

I’ll be checking out everything else, too; I read through Carolyn VanEseltine’s Inform 7 Guide, and I’m rereading Ron Newcomb’s Inform 7 for Programmers, and I’ll be reading Jim Aikin’s Inform 7 Handbook, as well as perusing the official manuals. But I enjoyed Creating IF the first time through when it was current and look forward to rereading it.

I have this book but haven’t yet read it. He does have updates for 6G60 on the site. Not sure what order the updates were, but this is a good place to start.
