Just as we expected BlackBerry Bridge v188.8.131.52 is now available through App World at this link. This means that PlayBook OS 2.0 is just hours away from going live. RIM in the past has released updates for BlackBerry Bridge within a day of releasing an update for the PlayBook. If is not showing up simply type alt+rst and it should clear the cache on your app world. It may take a while for everyone to receive the update, specially since many will try to download at the same time. Thanks to Terrence for the screenshots, and @AgentBlackBerry for the tip.
