Do people who have purchased the book before  1.7 get an update of changes because when loading projects they load as legacy layers. Thanks David

That's an interesting question. So far, @Patrick Connor has not indicated that any updates were needed, but I haven't seen anyone mention legacy layers. Which project did you see this in?

Do the instructions still work, and give the right results? If the only difference is the way the layers are marked, I'm not sure any update is needed. If the results are different than described, though, then perhaps something is needed.

An alternative to a book update might be for Serif to provide updated copies of the project files, made with 1.7. Perhaps each link in the book could lead to the file as it does today if the file is completely compatible between 1.6 and 1.7, or to a differentiation page if the user needs to choose which version of the file to download.

The changes were reasonably subtle. Follwoing the instructions in the previous reprint of the book still works. It's really not something that needs too much attention, we just checked that it could be followed in 1.7 and 98% of it could and the last 2% was tweaked.

Also, apparently the content that you can download is unchanged so one or 2 of the files contain a legacy adjustment settings!! I hope this is addressed at somepoint but AFAIK this work is still pending for the downloadable content.
