Q Firmware Updates

I was online at the Q support site and noticed firmware version 1.13 was listed as the most recent update. I also noticed two lens firmware updates for 01 and 02 lenses. When I checked my Q I have firmware version 1.14. Two questions: what has happened with version 1.14 and should I apply the two lens updates with even though the website only has v 1.13 and not v1.14?

FW 1.14 is for the 08 lens and I checked it is still on the support site, and yes you should update the lens FW

Thanks. I did upgrade my lens. Firmware Version 1.14 is the latest for the Q but it was apparent from the Ricoh site as they listed V1.13 as the latest. A quick search on the site did not bring up V1.14 for the Q either - just weird.

I was looking at both the U.S. site and the English version of the Japanese site. Not only is the U.S. site not as up to date as the English version of the Japanese site, but the interface for at least the support section is (in my opinion) less straightforward and more difficult to navigate.

The USA site is generally less robust than the Home Company site. It has at times appeared that administration of the USA site is outsourced which, if correct, might explain some of those issues.

I recently updated my original Q from firmware 1.00 to 1.14.

Anyone care to tell me what significant additions, deletions, and changes, at least to the user, (I'm not talking about obscure code tweaks) that occurred between 1.00 and 1.14?.
I've looked elsewhere but can't seem to find anything. So far as I can tell focus peaking and TAv mode was added - anything else that I may be missing?.

Wildman, they added inputing focal length for image stabilization with adapted lenses. Also drastically improved AF speed with an update.
thanks
