    Just looked at the release notes. They fixed a lot of stuff it looks like and not that many new bugs. Look's a little more solid, but this just by reading release notes and not using the new Beta 5.

    I'm not getting anything from Settings>General>Software Update. Maybe an OTA update will release later today?

    Not getting the OTA update. Probably will appear in a few minutes. Hope to not have to download the full version later when I come home.

    To install iOS 5 beta 5 using over the air software update, you must first erase all content and settings on your device by choosing Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Over the air software update can be initiated on devices running iOS 5 beta 3 and later by choosing Settings > General > Software Update.

    OK, well then I guess there's no point on using it them. Will restore the normal way.

    I agree what's the point of an OTA update if I still have to restore my device?

    In a surprise move, Apple has released iOS 5 Beta 5 to developers on Saturday. Apple typically releases new developer seeds on weekdays.

    BGR posts the change log, which details some fixes, but no major new features. We're looking into what other changes may have occurred.

    It's almost as if they are trying to do some sort of "beta testing" with it or something. Crazy Apple!
