A Question for the 3.0 vs 3.5 Savvy

My apologies if this has already been asked; I checked and didn't find it in recent entries.

Anyways ...

What I'm wondering is if the Book of Exalted Deeds is just a rehashing and/or smishing together of Defenders of the Faith and The Hero Builder's Guidebook?

I ask because I'm trying to avoid redundancy. I don't want to buy all three books if I don't really have to.

Any help/reviews/assorted comments appreciated. Thanks in advance.

PCGen 5.5.6 is out.

In the off chance that anyone cares, PCGen 5.5.6 has been released as a beta to 5.6 (the first version to handle 3.5 rules officially). PCGen is open source software, for those of you who have no knowledge of it, and runs on any platform with the Java Runtime Environment (1.3 minimum, 1.4.1 preferred).

5.6 will hopefully see release by the end of this month, but for those impatient for a decent character manager using 3.5 rules, try this one out for size.
