Little over a week ago Nokia released N9 PR1.2 beta version to the Nokia N950 developer device but at the time we didn't have the full changelog at the time.

Well now we do - it includes 5 new languages, app folders, extended copy-and-paste support (finally!), lockscreen music controls, front camera support, etc. Also there are many bug fixes and tweaks. We can't wait to take it for a spin on the N9.

Here are the most noteworthy improvements in the N9 PR1.2 beta version.

Software update notifications for content in Nokia Store

Face recognition for gallery and face tags for Facebook

Support for folders in the application view

Mail thread support in the Email client

Extended copy-paste support

Media sharing with DLNA compatible devices

Compass support in Maps

New font taken into use

Front camera support

Video editing support in the Gallery application

Separate switch for controlling mobile background connections while roaming

Camera: self timer, grid on/off control

Clock alarm becomes silent by flipping the device face down instead of snoozing

People view added to the grid toolbar in the gallery

Audiobook and podcast support in the music player

Ability to create playlists in the music player

Ability to delete music files from music player library views via object menu

Users who own the N950 and are eager to test out the new beta should know that upon updating there's no going back to version 1.1. MeeGo doesn't allow moving down beta versions.

Halleluja! I've missed my N900 so much. Am getting my N9 this week. Goes great with my Mac. The update could not have come at a better time for me.
