BES 5.0 SP2 Adds New IT Policies That Confirm New OS Features

We have heard about the features coming in BES 5.0.2 but Isaac over @CrackBerry spotted some interesting new IT policy rules that have been added just for OS 6.0. These new IT policy rules hint towards the new features we have heard about and seen in OS 6.0 leaks and RIM’s official preview video.

bes 5.0The new rules are:

  • Disable Feeds application
  • Prevent BlackBerry Podcasts
  • Prevent RSS Feeds
  • Prevent uploading of videos to YouTube
  • Content Protection Usage
  • Disable Browsing of Remote Shared Folders
  • Force IT Policy View Icon on Homescreen

We have seen before that RIM has integrated RSS feeds into the BlackBerry OS in 6.0 but have not heard much about them beyond that. We know that their is a Podcast app in beta based on the Chalk media technology RIM purchased previously so that makes sense. I am not sure what the YouTube rule means but I guess RIM will be building in uploads to YouTube which is sweet! The last one, Force IT Policy View Icon on Homescreen, really has me scratching my head. It seems like there will be a new icon on the homescreen ribbon to view the IT policy that is currently applied to the device. Not sure why you would want to waste valuable homescreen space on such an icon but who knows…

  1. Welcome added Features / Fixes:

    If you enabled LDAP, when users forwarded messages with attachments from their devices, the messages were sometimes received with a winmail.dat file attached instead of the original message attachment. (SDR 135593)

    When you install a BlackBerry Enterprise Server or start the BlackBerry Dispatcher,
    the BlackBerry Enterprise Server verifies whether the SRP ID is currently in use by
    another BlackBerry Enterprise Server. If it is in use, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
    does not open the SRP connection.

    I believe release for June is on the cards.
