Personally, I'm not holding out for massive improvements. I think there is too much to fix in just one update!

I am hoping this is going to be mainly bug fixes and another update in September (v20?) may add new functionality (Skype / Virtual RAM / Kinetic Scrolling in UI, etc).

I'm still hoping they find a way to fix the lens cover with firmware

This firmware only goes up by one version (v11 -> v12) so it'll only be bug fixes.

Big jumps in the firmware (v12 -> v20) generally indicate new features.

So, is it worth waiting for this before I return my phone for a replacement to fix the GPS issue (position dropouts)?

Easy firmware fix...

Downgrade camera software so that it behaves more like a 1.3 MP camera and everyone will be less tempted to take photo's and video. This would then mean less opening and closing of the lens cover and in turn, less lens scratching.

Simple really.

GRRRR!

Absolutely! I wrote in another thread just moments ago that a firmware update fixed a similar problem on my N95 Classic. Most of the issues that people seem to be having are purely software related (unresponsive touchscreen, double-press unlock slider to unlock phone, web/widgets closing randomly) so this may just do the trick **Fingers crossed for you all**

I may have been a tad hasty in writing this. v10 -> v11 introduced the Ovi Store to be built into the firmware, whereas before you had an icon which let you download it. This *could* be seen as a "new" feature because it wasn't included before.

I think you're right on the money, the small increments tend to be fixes and 'refinements' whereas the large numeric jumps tend to be new features. I would imagine there will be a team working on v20 in parallel with the team pumping out the fixes.

so v20 will introduce entirely new bugs!

Yes, and let's face it - there aren't many bugs we haven't seen! Maybe we should help them think of new ones?

How about a new bug in the messaging application that randomly sends swearwords to people from your contacts list?

Or an exciting new way of adding scratches to the front camera as well?
