I would be very interested in attempting to provide an update to the
book, to cover new features in 3.1. I still have a lot to learn, but I
thought that perhaps it would be helpful to pick a section in the book
that has changed (for example, I believe Chapter 20, on workflow), and
attempt to document the appropriate way to handle it in 3.1. As I
said, I do have a lot to learn, but as long as someone points me in
the right direction, I would feel comfortable attempting this.

Is this something that would be helpful?
