    Currently pulling down Apple's 1.7GB bugfix, was wondering if anyone's spotted any new functionality in 2.2.1 (either in the SDK or the OS).

    I notice LLVM support has appeared, which should make static analysis a bit nicer, though not sure what other advantages it confers.

    On the OS side it lists Safari stability enhancements. Certainly there was a marked difference in stability and memory usage in UIWebViews between 2.1 and 2.2, has anyone noticed further improvements?

    Mobile Safari is being updated so it's more stable, i'm wondering if the UIWebView object is also being updated and is more stable now... it would be great because I still have some memory warnings when loading much javascript...

    Why is it so hard to find any new release notes so we can see what's updated :s
