Update: The Firmware is now available.
Norman has just IM’d me saying that the changelog for the upcoming N95-1 Firmware is out. Curiously this one time the changelog is out before the actual firmware itself. Following suit from the N95 8GB, it is a major update that brings Flash Lite 3 support that enables flash video playback from the browser itself; we would finally we able to access over video streaming sites apart from Youtube. Also included is support for widgets.
The N95’s stability should inprove further and the performance aspect should also benefit. A nice tweak is that the default year has been changed to ‘2008’, it was something annoying. The full changelog can be found after the break.
