No UpdatesMicrosoft have just published a short changelog on what’s new in GDR2 or 8.0.10327.77 or 8.0.10328.78, which for Lumia devices should come along side the Lumia Amber update. The changes are as follow:

Update 8.0.10327.77 or 8.0.10328.78*

Xbox Music. It’s now easier to select, download, and pin music. Plus, music fans will see more accurate metadata (such as song and album information) and many other performance improvements.

FM radio. Listen to FM radio right from the Music+Videos hub. (Not available for all phones.)

Data Sense. Stay on top of your phone’s data usage with Data Sense. You can set a limit based on your data plan, or just keep track of which apps use the most data. (Not all mobile operators offer Data Sense.)

Skype. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) apps like Lync and Skype now feature improved stability and performance.

Internet Explorer. Your web browsing experience is now better than ever with improved HTML 5 compatibility.

Camera. Set your favorite Lens so it opens automatically when you press the camera button. (Not available for all phones.)

Other improvements. Includes many other improvements to Windows Phone.

*Your update version number depends on your specific phone model and mobile operator.

Of course for us Lumia owners we can also expect the Glance Screen function, Nokia Smart Cam (and hopefully later Nokia Pro Cam), and improved camera performance on the Lumia 920.

Now if only we could get the update…
