It should of been out already, but there were still bugs in the ipad version, which is why they released a 2nd gm build friday. For those overly eager, the GM builds don't require that your device be registered as a developer like the normal beta builds of iOS do.

I've been using the GM builds on both my iphone4 and ipad, and while it's really not all that big of an update for the iphone it is HUGE for the ipad. I've been waiting for multitasking for a while :) Airprint was the only other major new feature, and it's been neutered at the last minute... as of now it only works with like 3 HP printers, I expect that there will be a software update to enable printing to shared printeres shortly after iOS 4.2 actually ships. (There already is a hack to re-activate it on OS X 10.5.5, the necessary code is already in the OS update and just needs to be activated.)

Given this is the iPod forum and not the iPad forum, what's the big feature that has everyone chomping at the bit to get?

This is also the iPhone Forum.
iOS 4.2 is applicable to the iPhone as well as the iPad.
...hence my question

Good question. from what I've read there isn't much changed for iPhone users. Obviously iPad owners will be very keen for it though.

AirPlay and AirPrint are the two new things that 4.2 will bring to the iPod Touch, iPhone, as well as iPad.

I don't know that anyone is chomping at the bit for either of those things, but they're as valid for the iPod & iPhone as they are the iPad.

Airplay, isn't a whole lot of use unless you have an AppleTV or Airport with Airtunes, I don't think any 3rd party devices that support it are out yet...

As for Airprint, similar story, for now it's only supported on like 3 HP printers... I expect that to change shortly though...

For iphones and ipods it really isn't that big of an update...

For those that are eager to get it... google is your friend... the GM builds are out there and work.

If I had to bet the only reason I can see that they haven't been released yet probably relates to Airprint support was dropped from OSX 10.6.5 at the last minute....
