    I really want to get into xcode programming, The only interface I have known in Visual Studio on Windows which appears quite different.

    I have heard alot about xcode 3.0 coming with leopard.

    but will it be that to 2.4?

    my question is should I buy a book now based on xcode 2 or wait for a book release on xcode 3?

    any suggestions would be great

    That is the 64 dollar question.

    Suggest that you buy what you need today.

    If Apple's previous behaviour is any indicator of the future then nothing from XCode 3.0, the updated version of Interface Builder or Objective C 2.0 will be backported to any previous OS.

    But this does not mean that stuff you learn now will not be useful in the future. If you buy a book now and learn the basics you should be able to pick up the new stuff using the online documentation without buying another book.
