isn't gingerbread 2.3?
and icecream sandwich 2.4?

EDIT: now that it's changed. I also want to add that I can't wait for 2.3 for be released soon. Virtuous ROM ftw

Finally! I understand the HD would (& has been) the more popular of the two but finally! I'm only want it if for nothing else but the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth on/off menu on the pulldown!

Just checked the update. It here! :) Says: Android 2.3 update 103.27 MB of size!
Will install it after few hours!

Really? I'm unbranded Desire Z, one of the first batch, awesome! When I check there's no update for me yet but I'll keep trying!

Just updated my Desire Z (unbranded phone, in The Netherlands). Sadly the new lock screen is not included.

A few changes I have noticed (as my language is set to Dutch I could be using incorrect names):
- quick settings in the notification menu
- three tabs in the program list (all, often used, downloaded)
- the program list now scrolls down one page at a time (not per row anymore)
- A new program called 'Downloads' (or at least I can't remember seeing it before)
- Twitter is now installed (again, might have been there in the previous version).

Android version: 2.3.3
HTC-Sense version: 2.1
Build nr: 2.42.405.2 CL8s109 release-keys

this is most probably a ridiculously stupid question... but is rosie able to go into landscape mode?
rosie = sense launcher interface

As far as I can see that has always been the case (unless I am missing which part of Sense you are referring to)

Oh, well, i'm currently using Virtuous Unity and it does not have a rotating rosie since it was made for the sensation. i'm just reaffirming the future :)

best news ever! I've been looking at sense roms for the Vision but none of them are fully working (the 3.0 roms require G2 to flash the Desire Z hboot which I don't want to do). Can't wait for the Virtuous update!
