Why create a second edition of ASP.NET Core in Action?

I started writing the first edition of the book, ASP.NET Core in Action, back in August of 2016, right after the release of .NET Core 1.0 (in June 2016). As anyone who's gone through it will know, the process of planning, writing, and refining a book is a long one. ASP.NET Core in Action was finally published in June 2018.

In those two years from inception to publishing, the book had gone through many changes, not least in part due to the large changes that took place in .NET Core itself. During that time .NET Core had moved from version 1.0, through 1.1, to version 2.0 and even 2.1! .NET Standard was introduced. Microsoft's Current vs LTS support policy was introduced.
