New N95-1 Firmware v.21.0.016 Changelog Out – Firmware Awaited

Update: The Firmware is now available.

Norman has just IM’d me saying that the changelog for the upcoming N95-1 Firmware is out. Curiously this one time the changelog is out before the actual firmware itself. Following suit from the N95 8GB, it is a major update that brings Flash Lite 3 support that enables flash video playback from the browser itself; we would finally we able to access over video streaming sites apart from Youtube. Also included is support for widgets.

The N95’s stability should inprove further and the performance aspect should also benefit. A nice tweak is that the default year has been changed to ‘2008’, it was something annoying. The full changelog can be found after the break.

  1. well iv had fw v21.0.016 for 4 days now, it all seems great, but the new fw makes opera mobile crash alot (also happends on v15 with the n95 8gb), and the web browser eats more ram, iv had the “out of memory” error pop up once as the default web browser left me with 4mb ram out of 31mb, apart from those 2 problems everything is better than v20, cam and gallery are faster, UI is a tad faster, music over A2DP is alot better, cam quality is better also and auto focus is back when using night mode, well worth the update IMO
