Maya is a very stable application, but changes in future releases of it are likely to require minor changes to the material in the book. Any such changes will be discussed on this page. The goal is to keep the book up to date with future releases of Maya.
Change 1 in Maya 2015: New ways to create new edges:

From a beginner's viewpoint, there is a critical new tool, called the Multi-Cut Tool. It performs a task that in the tutorials in the book is performed with the old Interactive Split Tool. The new tool is very easy to learn and by playing with it for just a few minutes, it should be easy to see how to make it split faces.

First, select the tool:

The Multi-Cut tool

Then click to select the two edges you want the new edge to intersect:

splitting a face

Hit Enter.
