Og's API could be seen as "extended", so old apps should still work  
and if someone tries to build an Og app with these chapters it should  
work (if the book was written for Og 0.31.0).

For Nitro though quite some API changes happend that won't let old  
apps work unfortunately. These API changes are nice in itself and  
it's not very hard to adapt the new things, but old Nitro apps  
definitely won't work:

 From memory:

- run.rb changed quite a bit
- form helper (form_for()) is replaced (now form()) and works  
- scgi vanished
- some store adapters for Og vanished too (working Og adapters:  
postgresql, mysql, sqlite)

There might be some more.
