Apple has posted an updated beta version of iOS 4.2 for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. If you happen to have an Apple developer account, you can download it now.

There’s no official change log, but some users are reporting that the OS seems more stable, the YouTube app works better, there’s a new animation effect for multitasking, there’s an indicator in the App Store letting you know which apps work with the Game center, and there are new features allowing you to mark YouTube uploads as public, private, or unlisted.

You can check out a video showing the new multitasking animations below, courtesy of MacStories.
