iOS 4.2 Beta 2 Out – Adds Multitasking Animation, YouTube Upload Options and Maybe a Speed Boost

iPad Multitasking Bar

iOS 4.2 Beta 2 was released last night by Apple. So far, there are not a huge number of changes in this beta (though I’m sure some code diggers out there are searching for more as I write). The notable ones that have been uncovered so far include:

— A  new animation effect when switching between apps via the Multitasking Bar – a slide transition type effect where the newly selected app moves in front of the one you’re switching away from

— Some new options when uploading within the YouTube app

— Possibly a speed / performance boost, at least per this report

I installed the new beta last night, but really haven’t used the iPad enough since then to have any thoughts on it as yet. If you’re using it, please share your impressions or any new features you’ve spotted in the comments.
