Where does Blackberry post the release notes for OS software updates. It would be nice to know what is changed in the next version of the OS software instead of running into things by accident.

That is a pretty sad state of affairs. I assume that a particular OS update is specific to a single carrier. In other words 10.1.0.2030 is specific to AT&T and if, for example, there was a Spint update to the Q10, it would be under a different version number. So assuming the release number is specific to one carrier, why would Blackberry rely on the carrier to publish information they know nothing about. Blackberry would have to write the release note for the carrier to publish. If Blackberry is writing it anyway, why not just release the information publically? I can't understand how a major release of an OS would not carry any documentation to let the users know what changed. Do they really expect the users to find modifications by accident? Obviously Blackberry knows what they changed in each release. Why don't they let their customers know?

Based upon your explaination I totally agree. Blackberry may very well be providing detailed release notes to the carrier and we as ATT customers would not know it. So unfortunately if there are new features that would be good to use, we may never get to know it. Unless someone at Crackberry finds such new capabilities and posts it at their forum.

Just a thought - isn't this unfortunate situation described above (lack of communication about progress made towards the end customers) one of factors contributing to lower popularity of BB OS and BB devices using this OS compared to some alternatives? If this is the case, shouldn't BB/RIM be interested to try changing the contract conditions with carriers? If carriers are interested in keeping the devices market competitive, this argument should be understandable for them too, right?
