Just a quick heads up for everyone who’s not a member of the BlackBerry Beta Zone, or maybe you are and missed it. RIM just put up BlackBerry Messenger version 188.8.131.52 for download under the “Consumer” category for public testing. If you upgraded to the released version of BBM chances are you didn’t get an update notification from the Beta Zone. The latest released version is 184.108.40.206 so while the new beta isn’t a big jump, it probably has a few fixes.
For more info and to download the new beta go to blackberry.com/beta. Keep in mind you need to have a specific minimum OS version running on your BlackBerry before updating.
