Update July 14, 2011: We are concluding this beta trial as we prepare a release for Ovi Store distribution. Thanks everyone for helping us test out the beta version 1.2 of CNN International. Your feedback has been very valuable in determining what to focus on in the last stages of development.
Update July 8, 2011: Beta version 1.2 of CNN International is now available via Nokia Beta Labs with the following improvements:
- New look & feel for CNN Breaking News dialogue. It would be great if you could install CNN 1.2. before the weekend, as you will be doing manual test push notifications on Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10:00am Pacific time.
- Home screen (alias widget) support. Preferred category can be selected from settings. Default is top stories.
- Added support for S60 5th ed phones. Note: 5800 users must have PR4 (V40.0.005) or later sw version installed. CNN Video-on-demand and CNN Live do not yet work in this release on S60 5th ed devices.

- Based on Qt 4.7, previous version using Qt 4.6
- Many small improvements.
