max, but not really maxscript. The changes in the core language are very rare, like the new 64-bit number values in max 9 or the public and private labels for structs in max 2010. Operators, variables and functions declarations, basic types, control structures, etc, are exactly the same.
As for the new interfaces, contructors and methods that reflect the additions to each max version, they are very well documented in the reference. Having them in a book would just kill more trees.

Yup. I was going to pretty much echo what Garp said, albeit with absolutely no authority or certainty. Can't imagine the core language/syntax/structure changing from release to release. That'd just be crazy.
