Fans of Swype will be happy to know that the new Beta is releasing the first OTA update made possible by their recent implementation of an automatic update process. The new update brings a context-based prediction engine. This new feature allows Swype to learn from your texting patterns to better predict what you may want to to say next. Also, the new update brings Japanese language support, although the new predictive engine is limited to a only a few languages for now. Be sure to hit the source link below for more details. Here is a quick statement from the Swype newsletter,
Updates may take up to 72 hours to arrive on your device. You will receive an update notification the next time your device checks in to the Swype Connect service. You can manually initiate this process by pressing the "Refresh" button in the Swype Connect section of Swype Settings, though your update request may be deferred anyway based on server load. Please wait at least 72 hours before reporting update failures on the forums. Thank you.
