Minor software/UI improvents in K-5 → K-5 II?

Every Pentax camera I've bought has small but significant UI and software improvements over the previous, in addition to the big-name features. For example, the K20D offered different levels of edge sharpening, absent from the K10D, and automatic fine tuning of WB even when a predefined light type is selected. The K-5 itself has a whole bunch of these see: Pentax K-5 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So, are there any non-headline features going from K-5 to K-5 II?

Please don't post questions in the pentax news forum - moved.

Check out the K-5 II review for the bottom line on the interface:
Pentax K-5 II / IIs Review - Introduction -

There are two differences in the UI:
1. SEL area expansion has been added as an AF feature
2. The Image Comparison feature has seemingly been removed
