Who, my Lumia 520 is checking for updates now. Probably some bugfixes, nothing to much, I guess.

 

It has found updates and is now downloading them. :)

The first one, .150, is the build that comes with the new Lumia 1520/1320.  The newest one is just bug fixes, nothing new added to it. In my opinion I think the next update we get is a beta of 8.1 in February or March with build now being in April.  Or build could be when we get a beta/preview for 8.1 and we see a small update again to get ready for it.

 

This all depends on how update 3 goes out officially through the carriers first and if they want to wait for update 3 to finish going out before they seed a new preview build.

final builds can still have unforeseen bugs

I noticed nothing but a snappier interface.

 

No improved performance in anything else, just the interface animations were snappier.

 

Liking getting regular/rapid updates. About time >.<

yea but if it's true that the old one was final build then the general release will be pushing at least 3 updates at the same time

I got them on my 928 yesterday, but I'm also running GDR3.  If you're not you might not get the updates.
