One of RIM’s Project Managers, John, let drop in the Beta Zone that a new PlayBook OS update is coming soon. This is an interm update that includes bug fixes and improvements without any new features. It is intended to fix some issues before the main 2.0 update in February. Mauricio @BBRocks noticed the thread on the beta zone which you can check out here but this summary below:
I just wanted to let you know that we’re working on an interim Tablet OS software update to precede the 2.0 release in February. It won’t have any new features (we’re still perfecting those!), but a good percentage of the content came from this community.
Here is a list of some of the included changes (should make some of you happy):
– Daylight Savings Time: updated some time zones
– Updated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi drivers improving co-existence and connectivity
– BlackBerry App World account payments reliability improvements
– Improvements to VPN connection reliability
– Addressed some scenarios where BlackBerry Desktop Software would not restore applications to the PlayBook
You’ll see this update within a few weeks. I know some of you wanted more in the interim, but the focus is going into making things solid for 2.0. For what impact this community did have on this update, I thank you!
I can update this thread when it becomes available. In the mean time, feel free to share your thoughts!
