Update: Looks like some users are seeing verison 126.96.36.199 while some aren't seeing any update at all. If you don't have it yet, keep checking back. We're told it should be available for all in the next few hours.
Facebook for BlackBerry has finally received another official update. The latest version fixes some of the issues that have been causing problems for a few weeks now. The newest version is 188.8.131.52 and seems like a pretty solid update. New features/updates include:
Email Notification Improvements
Previously, if you turned on email notifications using the Facebook.com website, then logged out and logged back into Facebook on your BlackBerry smartphone, your email notification settings would be turned off. Now, with Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones 184.108.40.206, email notifications are left enabled if you change email notification settings using Facebook.com, then log out and log back in to Facebook on your BlackBerry smartphone.
Previously, if you set the background polling option to Never, then logged out and logged back into Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones, the polling setting would be set to 10 minutes instead of Never. This issue has been corrected so the background polling option will remain at the Never setting.
Photo Upload Freeze Fix
In the past, users may have seen their BlackBerry smartphone freeze when sending a photo to Facebook from the Media folder on their BlackBerry smartphone. This issue has been corrected by this maintenance release so no further freezing should occur.
The new version should be available in BlackBerry App World but it looks like it's not yet showing for all users. Head over to the link below and see if it is showing for you. Be sure to leave a comment and let us know!
