Sprint support page says webOS 1.2 hitting today?

webOS 1.2 changelog

Okay, webOS 1.2 silly season is in full swing right now. According to a support page on Sprint.com (Where do I find the software version on my Palm® Pre™ and how can I update it?), webOS 1.2.0 is being released on September 8, 2009. Wait, that’s today, isn’t it? Well, I’ve been mashing the refresh button in the Updates app and haven’t gotten any notice of the available update.

Full text of updates after the break. A lot of it we've already seen, but there are some new bits in there worth noting.

Oh, and when webOS 1.2 finally does land, those of you with tweaks applied to your phone should take the time to remove them before installing the update. We wouldn't want you to risk borking your precious Pre!
