Also I think that may have been a common issue before 1.4 but I never experienced it myself

I've always preferred beta over the official.  Not sure how they work out their numbering system though?!
My assumption is that the official ones are created for manufacturers to include in phone releases but are not kept up to date.  The beta versions are constantly being improved upon and are first to see new features.

If you open the web browser to type in a URL, the .com button appears. Well it does in Chrome anyway.

One feature I have noticed recently but have no idea how long it's been there, is the ability to delete any word from the dictionary by holding it down when it appears in the option list of similar words. There were so many words that Swype would bring up instead of my intended word that I can now delete.
