On what date was 5.9.902 released to everyone?
On or about February 8, 2012 the Verizon support docs were updated to show 5.9.905 coming soon.
On February 9, 2012, 5.9.905 had not yet been officially released for pull or push.
I don't see how the announcement came weeks after release.
The current 5.9.905 update is proceeding so far in the same fashion as the 5.9.902 did.
