    I got the update. Took about 7min or so for download and reboot.

    The menu buttons and keyboard lights no longer work.

    Somebody better call the office.

    UPDATE: KEYBOARD AND MENU LIGHTS ARE OK NOW. after rebooting the second time I launched Googlers Goggles because I installed it earlier this evening, once the camera came on the menu leds did too. Checked the keyboard as well.

    Beta software....I think I will go to bed now.

    I got the update today. Can't tell if it's faster, but one thing I did notice is that I can now have two 2x1 widgets on the top row. I had the digital clock centered there and tried to move it to one side so I could put a weather widget next to it. No luck.

    Post update, they both are comfortably at the top of my home screen. This is in both the native home screen and the Home++ one.

    Camera is a bit faster, too. Can't comment on the focus yet since mine's worked fine all along. (Anyone know how to change the sounds or adjust the volume for the camera sounds?)

    That's it so far.

    Woke up to the update this morning. I had it on the dock and in my state of grogginess, thought something was trying to force close. After installing it, here's what I've noticed so far.

    Everything is a bit snappier. I've had no lag so far using the Home++ replacement.

    Both the lock screen and the power control widget have changed.

    Camera does focus much quicker and takes pictures more quickly.

    My keyboard and menu button lights did not work at first, even after a second reboot, but they did start running again after I ran the camera. Go figure.

    That's about it after a cursory glance. I'll try and repost my findings later tonight after a full day at work. Here's hoping they added night mode to google navigation.

    Is it known whether this update fixes the issue of audio playback not resuming on speaker after a phone call? This is my one and only gripe about the Droid as I use it extensively. Luckily I don't make or receive phone calls that often. What can I say? No one loves me! lol
