The 188.8.131.52 (92) upgrade brings the 8700 visually closer to usability enhancements seen on standard PC operating systems - of course cell phones are limited by comparison. Email capability is richer with HTML, BB messenger has been upgraded and most of the annoying bugs were fixed.
I think the upgrade runs faster overall. Bug fixes to the TCP stack or API are also present. Applications that had issues with 4.2, now run correctly with 184.108.40.206 (92).
The Internet Browser interface was redone - very nice. Support for multiple Calendars was added - another nice feature.
Summary: This upgrade is now mature and worth the effort to install. Be prepared for small interface changes, but all better than 4.2.
Back up your system, install it, and see what you think. Nice upgrade
