N95 Firmware update (21.0.0.016)

Standard

A new version of the firmware for the Nokia N95 was released yesterday. (The change log can be found at the end of this post)
So far i have only noticed a few differences, one being that the gallery is now much quicker to display thumbnails of your pictures. Another notable change is the introduction of Widget support. These are essentially the same as applications but they run in a web runtime, and can be used to display information from battery life to rss feeds to currency conversion rates. At the moment i’ve only found a couple that are of any real use but i’m sure more will appear as more people get this update.
I will post again if i discover anything else that has changed which makes a noticeable difference to how the phone works…
