Set to bring copy and paste functionality, better Marketplace search, and other tweaks and improvements Eric Hautala from the WindowsTeamBlog.com posted:

This brings me back to our February update, which I briefly want to touch on.

As you might recall, this minor update is an important but invisible under-the-hood tweak designed to improve the phone update process itself. It results in no visible changes to your phone.

Of the customers who’ve so far tried to install it, the overwhelming majority have been successful. If you’ve been following along, you know that we did encounter a few issues, which we quickly identified and fixed or provided workarounds for.

But I believe it’s important that we learn all we can from the February update. So I’ve decided to take some extra time to ensure the update process meets our standards, your standards, and the standards of our partners. As a result, our plan is to start delivering the copy-and-paste update in the latter half of March.

He went on to state that this delay should not cause a knock-on effect on future updates, particularly the recent Mobile World Congress announcement bringing multitasking, a Twitter feature, and a new HTML 5-friendly version of Internet Explorer Mobile.
