I am aware of a few other Animate CC books in the works - but have no information on the possible publication dates.
I would say that if the Flash Pro CiB is a better match for your students then it would be fine to use it - since Animate is essentially the same program. The problem will be that a lot of the newer stuff in Animate isn't covered in older books - so I would suggest supplementing an older text with additional materials.
Hope that is helpful!
Your reply was very helpful. I will be teaching Animate this Fall and am looking for a book. I have just purchased your book, but I fear after looking through it that it will not be what I need for students. Is there anything coming out before the fall of which you are aware? Any help would be useful.
I'm not aware of anything before Fall, no.
