Got the message, downloaded and now need to look over the material.

My hardcopy core book is getting well worn. When might new prints of the book be published?
I have the same question. I posted over on the reddit, and sent an email to Matt, but I have not heard anything back, yet. I'd like to get an updated printing as well.

The new printing will be here towards the end of the year!

Sounds like my first present for the holiday!

Talking about errata, there's some discrepancy with the price of a Launch.

The Launch included with the Type-R subsidised merchant (HG p. 138-9) is listed as MCr 5.607. This doesn't correspond to the Launch (HG p. 96) as this costs MCr 2.367.

The Launch in the core rulebook (p. 188) is listed as MCr5.607, which conforms to what the stated cost is when added to a ship, but a lot higher than a Launch on its own.

I came across one (early?) description of the launch as having 2 tons of maneuvre drive (which leads to a cost of MCr 4 for that, and a total cost of MCr 5.607 for the craft, but that seems to be a typo as it should be 1G = 1% of 20 ton = 0.2 ton of M-Drive, and thus MCr 0.4 cost.

Looks like this error has managed to sneak it's way into all the bigger ships having a Launch as a small craft: the Type-R and the Type-M subsidised liner both have a Launch included for the (wrong) cost of MCr 5.607. The prices of both are consistent over High Guard and the core rulebook (and thus, both wrong).

Also, the Type-R subsidised merchant in my High Guard book costs MCr 90.287, in my Core rulebook it costs MCr 81.2683. If I calculate what it should cost, it's MCr 76.212 without the Launch. If I add the "wrong" (higher) price for the Launch (which already has been getting the "standard design" discount) to the "raw" price and subtract the discount over the whole amount (so counting that twice for the Launch) I come close to the Core rulebook price. No idea where that difference comes from, except that (my) core book has a cargo space of 199 while High Guard has 201 ... 8)

Or it's some kind of thing where the Third Imperium requires launches on Subsidised vessels to be certified to a high degree, making them cost what's listed :D

In my view, for ships with small craft, it should be "calculate the cost of the ship without the small craft" and then add the cost of the small craft, in both cases calculating for "standard design" or architect fee per craft, so you don't calculate (discount/add) that twice.

Don’t know about the core rulebook ships as much, but the high guard ships are riddled with dozens of errors.

AD’s link in the post above is the best effort I’ve seen at correcting them.

The Core Rulebook ships are also in High Guard and thus corrected there.

I bought the 2e core book in hardback. Is there a way to exchange it for the errataed version when it's ready?

I recently purchased the Core book and also received the PDF here, from the Mongoose webstore. Is there a way to check what version PDF I have?

I noticed the PDF has a pretty glaring discrepancy on pages 19 and 22 with the Army Cavalry assignment survival rolls. Page 19 it's DEX 7+ and on page 22 it's INT 7+. I'm used to having my physical rule books requiring errata, so it's not a big issue for me. But, I would like to make sure I have the most recent PDF.

If page 15 has this correct text, its the latest with the new errata.

Page 15 , text added above Education
Events Table:
'If drafted, enter the new career next term, but do
not graduate. This (and similar effects) can cause a
Traveller to be drafted more than once.'
