It's time for developers (and jailbreakers) to get ready for the latest build of iOS to hit the internet. The beta builds for iOS 4.2 for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch are now available for download if you've got super-duper developer access.

New features hinted at in the new beta are multitasking for the iPad, as well as a new "printing experience" for iOS devices dubbed "AirPrint." AirPrint is set up to automatically find local printers over WiFi and print text, photos and graphics without the need to install drivers or software. AirPrint will work over PC or Mac devices, although HP's ePrint enabled devices will be the only printers able to take advantage of this technology initially. AirPrint and iOS 4.2 are expected to be released to the public in November.
