I'd update now, but really don't want to move things around on my limited space C: drive at the moment. Will wait until I get home. I am curious what (if anything) else is addressed. Someone posted a screencap on Twitter showing the files that seem to be new/different and it looked like more than just certificate handling. Regardless, I'm glad to see that this update is going out without any significant delays. I'm really hoping that's the trend going forward as opposed to the mess that was the NoDo update. (realizing that was largely the manufacturer's fault, with a little extra for MS and the carriers for trying to bundle in device/carrier specific updates and MS for not checking the manufacturing processes for devices such as Samsung.)

Maybe we'll get OTA updates soon or at least the ability to choose where to save my device backup. Forcing me to use my C: drive isn't always the best choice, especially when I have limited space on that drive in the first place.

I think I'll wait too. Assuming I get notified.

With the Focus it seems like there is a really high likelihood of an update going wrong.

I spend most of my IE time on Google Reader so the SSL thing doesn't worry me.

Worked fine for me on my 'unlogo'ed' Quantum. Didn't see much of a change, tho.
