    A new version of the Swype Beta is out. Here are the improvements...

    Added better context sensitivity for the “magic button” (go/search/enter/smiley)
    Added automatic apostrophe insertion for contractions (e.g. won't, don't, wasn't, etc)
    Added the Italian language dictionary
    Improved sensing of field type to prevent the display and addition of passwords to the UDB (user dictionary)
    Improved suppression of auto-spacing in fields such as URLs and email addresses
    Updated the built-in dictionary to include several common words that were previously missing
    Rewrote some settings descriptions to be more clear on their functionality
    Fixed licensing issue causing “Limited Functionality” errors when rebooting devices running Android 2.0 and later
    Fixed licensing issue causing some users to receive an “Incorrect ID” error when installing Swype
    Fixed a bug where manually typing some words with word-prediction enabled would cause Swype to crash
    Fixed a bug which caused some words added to the UDB to erroneously override other words when word-prediction is enabled
    Many other minor bug fixes!

    No problem installing on my Droid. Assuming you followed the directions, login to the Swype website and let them know.

    P.S. Be sure to uninstall your previous Swype installer app by "Menu>Settings>Applications>ManageApplications>Filter:ALL" and then uninstalling BOTH the installer and the Swype application.

    Installed it right before posting here a couple of hours ago. Works great. I need to explore the new features though.

    Installed without a hitch. You need to be a part of the Beta, and it's distributed via email to the Beta members.
