In the meantime the STL isn't longer a library of its own, because it was integrated into the C++ Standard library and is now part of it. This book "Designing Components with the C++ STL" will not be updated. New developments of the coming C++ Standard will be dealt with in my german book Der C++ Programmierer (and on a lot of english web-sites).
Downloading the book may still be interesting for people who want to know how to use the STL and how it works internally.
