Since browsing writingshaders.com recently, I've started thinking about the upcoming book and am wondering about its relation to the new MetaSL shading language. Is this going to be covered in the book? If not, is there any learning material coming for that, and would it not be wise to me to start focusing my time / money on that instead, given its future priority? Maybe this would be a good place to ask about the relation between the C shaders and the MetaSL shaders. My understanding is roughly, MetaSL shaders get translated into C shaders, but not the other way around.
