Palm's touting that webOS 1.4.5 is now out and about, though its support page for the version is a wacky hodgepodge of Sprint and SFR versions of the update -- perfect for French expats living in the good ol' US of A, we suppose. Odds are very good that this new build isn't going to blow you away, but hey, an update's an update: you'll get "minor fixes and enhancements" for use with the PDK, a text field fix for the browser, a "rare problem" involving podcast downloads, and that's about it. The optimist in us wants to believe that the utter lack of innovation in this latest update is a sign that most of Palm's brain trust is invested in engineering fresh hardware at the moment -- right, Palm? Right?

Update: Arne from the::unwired points out to us that the Pixi line gets full PDK support with 1.4.5, which is actually a pretty big deal since that means you've now got 3D gaming support. Cheers to that, we say.
