    General

    * If you changed your status to Busy, contacts might have continued to see your status as Available.

    * Display pictures might not have appeared.
    * After changing the contact list style from 2 lines to 1 line, the recent updates list might have looked scrambled.
    * If you removed your BlackBerry® device from the holster after receiving a new BlackBerry® Messenger message, the message did not automatically display.
    * After you add a new contact, the activity updates list indicated that the contact’s display picture and display name have changed.

    * In group chats, some emoticons might appear to be cut off in messages.
    * If you tried to join a group by scanning a group barcode, and if 30 people had already scanned the barcode, you received a “This invitation has expired or has already been used by someone else” error message and could not join the group.

    * If a contact switched devices, the contact might have no longer been linked with the Contacts application.
    * After changing the contact list style from 2 lines to 1 line, the recent updates list might have looked scrambled.

  2. I can’t believe you didnt mention what to me is one of the most important changes.
    Option to NOT have text messages from linked contacts appear in BB!!! That was honestly in my opinion one of the most annoying ‘feature’ of BBM!

  3. Doesn’t work! I cannot see the latest version in AppWorld neither the direct download link works!

  4. I am still getting it at http://www.BlackBerry.com/messenger

  5. Finally got the update on my appworld.

    The file is 5.6MB, up from 3.0MB in version 5.0.0.57

    PS. i think the change log is:·    
    Bug fixes to improve the overall user experience
    ·     Simplified sending of pictures and voice notes
    ·     More user-friendly wording and organization in menus
    ·     Support for a simpler, one line view of contact list
    ·     Support for both deleting an unsent chat message (Shift-Del) and escaping out of a chat while retaining an unsent chat message (Escape button)
