Get excited, Verizon Pixi Plus or Pre Plus owners! But not too excited. Just a little bit excited. Less “Holy crap, I’m getting a petting zoo for my birthday!” excited, more “Neat, it’s probably not going to rain on my birthday!” excited.

Verizon just pushed out a minor update for webOS, bumping things up to version While there’s nothing in terms of new features, it’s jam-packed full of bug fixes. Check out the full list after the jump.

    unpairing a device. x Displayed time feature is more accurate.
  • Automatic updates for Daylight Saving Time. x Easier connection management.
