Tim – Amiga OS 3.2.2 Update – Just released by Hyperion - it adds some small cosmetic features, such as an About box in the new Text Editor, chip revision info if you're lucky enough to have a 68060 processor, and support for older versions of Kickstart, which means 3.2.2 can now dual-boot with older versions.

This is available to registered users of OS 3.2 - Doug (10 Min Amiga Retro Cast) has already popped out a video all about it.
