New firmware for K-5/K-5II

On the site of the Russian Pentax dealer has appeared a new firmware for Pentax. For example for K-5/K-5II. The new firmware for K-5 is 1.15, for K-5II/IIs - 1.05.
I do not know why these updates did not appeared on the Ricoh site at the moment.
There are the links: ??????????? ?????????? PENTAX RICOH IMAGING RUSSIA
Or directly:
I have installed both - for K-5 and for K-5IIs.

Changes to V1.15

Correspond to the AF assist light function by white LED light for auto flash unit [AF360FGZII] and [AF540FGZII].
Optimized contrast AF when using HD PENTAX-DA Limited series lenses.
Improved stability for general performance.
*Contents of [Version 1.14] and earlier version will be also updated.

Installed v1.15 for the K-5 from the Pentax JP site.
No problems installing, no noticeable performance difference, no new menu items etc, no complaints.

I was hoping they might install a software update for the "camera level" so we could calibrate it via the software but I'm not hearing anything so far.
