Just a few weeks after launch, it looks like the Pixi is already hoggin’ all the update-love. Early today, Palm pushed WebOS 1.3.2 out to Pixi owners, leaving Pre owners wondering when they’d get theirs.

Palm’s not making a big fuss about this update, but we managed to dig up the patch notes and find out what was goin’ on.

No new features, and no mentions of any specific bugs outside of a minor one with wired headsets – but there is one big blanket statement: “this release addresses several security issues with Palm WebOS Software”.

Security issues? Sounds like something Pre owners will probably want patched, stat. Palm gives credit for the security find to someone named “Chris Clark”, who, interestingly enough, has popped up a couple other times in Palm patch notes. Time to give the guy a job, Palm.
