The second link to the most recently published version is the one people are buzzing about. I haven't read this version, but apparently, it is arranged the way Twain intended it to be. Previous versions were extensively rearranged by editors since Twain's arrangement was not chronological and was tangential. They say Twain intended this and thought he had discovered the one true way to write an autobiography. I heard an interview with one of the editors of this most recent edition who said that years of scholarship went into uncovering this original arrangement. It's definitely on my reading list.
