Apple has just released a new version of the highly anticipated iOS 4.2 update for developers, iOS 4.2.1 Gold Master. Though the first Gold Master of iOS 4.2 was released weeks ago, Apple has yet to initiate a public release.

This version of iOS has build number 8C134 and instructions from Apple for developers to retest their iOS 4.2 applications using the 4.2.1 build.

Apple says only minor fixes are included in this build. iOS 4.2 will bring a vast array of features to iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads including AirPlay, AirPrint, multitasking on iPad, folders on iPad, and improved Safari and Mail performance.

Hopefully this minor bug fix update signals that Apple is prepared to release a version for public consumption. Many are champing at the bit to get their iPad up to speed with their iPhones and iPod Touches that have been running iOS 4 since the summer.

What's the feature you are looking forward to the most in iOS 4.2? Let me know in the comments!
