The full changelog is as follows:

* Added German and Portuguese languages
* Added the auto-space suppression short-cut gesture: Swype from the spacebar to backspace
* Added the quick language switch short-cut gesture: Swype from the Swype Key to the Q key
* Improved the word prediction algorithm to provide better support for additional languages
* Improved handling of several gesture collisions, including want/wasn't, to/too and others
* The Android IME no longer sometimes hangs/crashes when Swype scrapes the user's address book for dictionary entries
* Tips and help menus now accessible when a password field is active
* Backspace now works in applications which use raw key input instead of an editable text field (e.g. terminal emulator)
* The single character "i" is no longer incorrectly auto-capitalized in non-English languages (reported by many of you!)
* Tons of other minor bug-fixes, including many device-specific issues

Thanks for that. Just updated via the beta page.

It looks like they updated the keyboard's looks (again). And they added a "Show complete trace" option, which leaves the trace on-screen for the last word Swyped (unless I missed it from a previous version).

It's sorta been there always, just labeled differently. Before it showed the "correct" trace for the word it used. Now it uses your trace instead.

hey mates,
I'm having trouble installing swype 2.4XXXXXX
thats my steps:
- I removed old swype version
- I installed via "swype installer"
ok installation complete.
I enabled swype from "language and keyboard" and the first option "Select language" is disabled. (I supposed it used the default language)

I try writing an sms enabling swype but I received this error:
"The Swype package you installed is configured for another device etc." :confused:

So I uninstalled Swype and Swype installer.

I tried again with a direct apk of same version 2.4XXXX.
but same error.... :mad:


any idea?

Seems noticeably faster, mine used to have a lag between the end of the swype and the word coming up. Though i did have some trouble getting it to recognise some long words i was writing, even when i did it very slow and deliberate over the letters, it would still get it wrong.

You're not alone. From what i know they used a security encryption in the DEX file which checks for the phone identity or something like that. So unless someone finds a way to bypass it, this will probably never work for non-beta testers.

SOLVED ! ! !

I uninstalled old swype 1.6, I installed swype installer and I installed swype from swype installer.
After swype installation I saw a window called "registering product".
After this swype worked good.

Maybe was an authentication issue ;)

for anyone who wants to buy it from market - give ultra keyboard a try. it can type and swipe, and has a gazillion of options. i for one like it better than swype.
only downside is that it does not work with CoPilot...but that may very well be copilots fault.

what about the new android phone owners??

Ya know it would have been really nice if Swype could have given new android owners a chance to sign up. I haven't had my Incredible for long.. first android I've owned. Really wanted to try Swype, so installed it.. and now I am getting that stupid expired message.. I didn't realize how much I really liked this way of typing!! now I feel lost... :(

I REALLY hope someone will upload the new beta version soon.. I'm already having withdrawal symptoms!!!:(
