HP continues to update webOS for TouchPad users.  Here is the blog post from HP explaining what they changed:

The HP webOS 3.0.5 update enhances core apps like Email and Calendar, improves the video calling experience, and fixes additional bugs.

  • Faster switching between Day, Week, and Month views, and faster event display in Calendar.
  • Faster scrolling when reading an email message.
  • Email attachments are now saved with draft messages.
  • Added sender photos and IM presence indicators in Email.
  • Improved stability when watching video in the Web app.
  • Improved handling of MP3s that are transferred from a computer using USB Drive mode.
  • Added a dedicated view of contacts available for a video call, for quicker setup of a video call.
  • New alert when video quality might be lower because of network issues.
  • When typing, pressing the space bar twice inserts a period. This can be toggled on and off.
  • Auto-correction can be turned off directly from the onscreen keyboard.

I updated my TouchPad tonight and noticed some improvements, particularly in the calendar and email applications.  If you are also sporting a TouchPad, go ahead and do the over the air update!
