The 1.2 version of Palm Pre’s webOS was leaked via Palm itself, inadvertently showing off future features like an improved copy/paste, email searching and saving images from the browser.
The email search still isn’t included in Universal Search as far as the version of 1.2 that was leaked was concerned, but if you want to see the other minor enhancements of 1.2, head to the Precentral forum. They’re adding more details as they find them.
Note: You can and will horribly brick your Pre if you let the phone auto-update back to 1.1 from 1.2.
Here’s what you get as part of the new update-
- Find-as-you-type search support in Email
- App Catalog updated to support purchasing apps
- Web browser enhanced
* auto zooms to forms
* download in browser enabled (including opening pdfs)
* better rendering of mobile pages
* Orange+click context menu on links
* save images
- “Real” copy and paste
* shift tap to select areas of text
* Select All option in Edit menu
- Sort by Priority or Date Due in Tasks
- Other minor tweaks and changes
I’ll add more stuff as it’s found.
