I have the book dating about a year back, with the following metadata (no other version information in there):
Producer: FPDF 1.7 CreationDate: Fri Aug 24 15:10:36 2012
I believe there is a slight error in the Orthographic Projections hands-on (it may not be there in current versions of the book, but since my download timeframe is long over, I can not check that – should that be the case, sorry for the noise).
On page 219, step 1 of the exercise (drawing the front view), it is said
Set the first corner of the rectangle at the origin of the drawing (1) and the other corner at 30,20 (2).
On pages 225-226, steps 7 and 8, drawing a 45-degree auxiliary line for the right-side view, it is said
Set the position of the line at the origin of the drawing (coordinate 0/0).
0/0 is the “bottom left” corner of the top view. The correct coordinates for the auxiliary line’s position are 0/30, the “bottom left” corner of the front view.
(I had not realized the bug tracker had a Book category as well – hence this is a duplicate of an e-mail report I have sent to info@.)
