Software update available for the Sprint Hero

There's a new software update from HTC for all of us holding on to the Sprint Hero.  This updates the Android 2.1 system from 2.27.651.5 to 2.27.651.6.  To get the update, open settings and cruise to About Phone > System Updates > HTC software updates, then follow the prompts.  Not exactly sure what this is fixing, other than closing the new root exploit, but everyone running a stock Sprint HTC Hero should update accordingly.  Those of us riding the root train should hold off until the developers go over this one to see how to handle the changes.

Anyone notice any differences after updating?  Let us know in the comments and forums!
