Apple Unleashes iOS 4.2.1 GM for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch to Devs
On Thursday, Apple released to developers a brand new version of the Golden Master iOS firmware for the iDevices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). Bumped up to 4.2.1 Build 8C148, we may now be closer than ever to the final version delivering fixes to the glitches, bugs, and other shortcomings with which many of us are familiar.
From Network World:
The new GM has reportedly been released to address bugs and errors found in previous builds. Earlier on Thursday, MacRumors published an e-mail sent out by VoIP developer Toktumi--responsible for calling app Line2--that warns customers not to upgrade to the latest version of Apple's iOS. "If you upgrade to iOS 4.2 and you are running Line2 in the background, the ringer will continue to ring even after an incoming call is answered," the e-mail notes, stating that the issue has been designated as "severe" by Apple Developer Support.
Nonetheless, despite the update and version increase, sources have been quoted (including in a report published by MacRumors) that Apple is allegedly telling developers not to resubmit their applications. For now, the release is a positive step in the right direction and a stellar indication that a final, public release is imminent.

apple is very fast these days with iOS firmware release one after the other, really seems like theyre trying to keep that jailbreak away from their devices. i know they are, just how many little glitches in iOS changes is needed to get 1 final iOS to fix all of bugz. You can never stop perfecting something but it does look bad to me it just seems release one update to cover 2 fixes while there's 5 that really needs to be fixed.

They call it GM (golden master) but internally it's numbered as "GM RC 1", that is, Release Candidate (for being the Golden Master).... go figure.
