New Maintenance Release for Windows Phones

Microsoft has started to roll out a new Windows Phone update, and plans to stop offering specific update information on its "Where's My Phone Update?" web site.

The new Windows Phone update - 8107 - is available to many Windows Phone users. The latest update (v7.10.8107.79), available to all carriers that request it, is part of Microsoft maintenance of Windows Phone. It fixes the following issues:

- Email. Fixes a Google mail syncing issue.

- Location. Fixes a location access issue. With this fix, the Me feature in the People Hub sends anonymous information about nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers to Microsoft only if you agree to allow the Check In function to access and use location information.

- Security. Revokes digital certificates from DigiCert Sdn Bhd to address an encryption issue.

- Email threads. Fixes an email issue related to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. With this fix, when you reply to or forward a message, the original message is now included in your response.

- Voicemail. Fixes a voicemail notification display issue that occurs on some European and Asian networks under certain conditions.

In the months ahead, Microsoft will continue to send out firmware and maintenance updates as needed. These will be available across the globe - although not everybody will receive or require them. It depends on users' country, carrier, and phone model. The updates will just pop up as notifications on users' phones.

Microsoft will also won't be individually detailing country, model, and carrier details on the "Where's My Phone Update?" site any longer. And instead of weekly blog posts, the official Windows Phone website will be the primary place for news and information about Microsoft's updates.
