"What's in this update:

Well, let's be honest.  None of this is going to be disruptive, massive, or huge, but it is welcome.  I imagine there's more under the hood than above it in this case, and sorry folks, but still no copy and paste.  Overall this update is meh-riffic and looks more like an update to Google Maps than the entire OS, but then again, it's only a point-release.  I'm doing the upgrade now and will have more to report on after I use it a bit throughout the day.  Hopefully it'll be more impressive in real life than it is on paper.
