Thankfully, we saw a unified release of webOS 1.4.5 for both Verizon and AT&T. The update will of course come OTA (over the air), so there’s a good chance it hit your phone last night. Here’s the changelog from Palm for the AT&T update.
- Version: webOS 1.4.5
- Release date: 13 September 2010
Feature changes to existing applications
- This release includes minor fixes and enhancements to support the public release of the webOS PDK.
- This release may require you to update certain apps to their latest version to properly support the launch of the webOS Plug-in Development Kit (PDK). If you have a game that is not saving your game information correctly (high scores, stages, settings), check the App Catalog for updates. For more information on updating apps, see Using App Catalog .
If a user enters text in a field on certain websites, the screen focus now remains on the text being entered.
This release fixes a rare problem so that podcasts now download correctly.
This release addresses several security issues with the Palm webOS software.
Let’s hope that going forward carriers are a little quicker on the take. In any event, get to updating and let us know how webOS 1.4.5 works for you.
