To go along with the Gold SDK update today, we have a brand new BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha OS as well. This time we kick up to version 10.0.9.1675 (some users are seeing 10.0.9.253). If you have a Dev Alpha check for the update and you should see it available. Release notes after the break, and if you spot anything new be sure to let us know!
