Is this anything more than Blu-Ray 2.0?

Some more DivX support, and the ability to transfer more from your PS3 to PSP.

Did Sony give us an official changelog visible during the update process this time?

Err, what?

Stealth updates are likely...plus...Sony also stated we'd see:

The ability to copy PS3 Music and Photo playlists to a PSP system.

We introduced the ability to create Music and Photo playlists on the PS3 in firmware update v2.0.

Now you can easily export your playlists to your PSP.

You can now play DivX and WMV format files that are over 2 GB. I

n addition, you can now display subtitles when viewing DivX files. Resume Play - begin playing a DVD or BD disc from the point where you previously stopped it, even if you eject the disc and insert a different movie or game.

Use your PSP as a remote control to play back your music files on your PS3 without turning on your TV.

The Internet browser now displays some web pages faster.

In addition [Save Target] has been added as an option under file. This option lets you save a file that is linked to a web page to your PS3 hard drive or storage media.

Apparently the web browser is optimised in this update. It will be interesting to see if it's much faster. Also, the DivX over 2GB playback facility is a nice addition too.

I'll rephrase. Sometimes, when updating the firmware on either the PS3 or PSP, between the download and the install, a prompt will appear on your TV screen that lists all the features of the new firmware. However, this is hit or miss and this prompt only appears on some firmware updates.

My question is, did a list appear during this update or not?
