Quite a few readers let us know that the they were notified that BlackBerry Messenger 126.96.36.199 is now available in the Beta Zone. While most of us are waiting for a beta, leak, or official release of BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 its interesting to see RIM still improving the current version. If you login to Beta Zone and are part of that program you will immediately get the popup shown above with the following info:
New BlackBerry Messenger 188.8.131.52 software is available for you to download.
This is a standard maintenance release. You won’t see many new features in this build, but it does provide a few bug fixes:
- If you are running BlackBerry® 6.0, a cursor might not have appeared when you scrolled through previous messages in a chat.
- If you turned on content protection, when you received a new message, you might have seen a "Content protection is enabled" message.
- If a person invites you to become a contact during a multi-person chat with you, and if you accepted the request, the contact might not have appeared on your contact list.
