K-3 FW version hierarchy

Saw reference in another thread advising a K-3 owner to make sure he has the most updated FW, which he thought was v1.03. Checking the Ricoh/Pentax site downloads section for K-3 I saw no reference to FW v1.11 which mine is currently running. I've learned its never a good idea to make assumptions about software/firmware version hierarchy (in anything) so where does v1.11 fall?

It ran 1.00, 1.01, 1.02, 1.03, 1.10, 1.11. See Latest K-3 Firmware Update : Software Downloads | RICOH IMAGING.

It is the most recent version, though for some reason, it is not available for download from Ricoh USA. It is available from other Ricoh sites (e.g. Ricoh Canada, Ricoh Japan). Version v1.03 was version immediately before v1.11. Edit: See Paul's comment above for the full, complete, and correct list.

I will point out the rather cute change made in 1.10:
  • Changed to ISO Bracketing when using Exposure Bracketing on TAv mode.
Such a surprising but sensible idea.

And in a not so far away future I hope we get a 1.20 with some nice new features like auto super huge Megapixel images, automatic manual mode and mechanical SR in video.

I am holding out for K-cup support.

Flavia has better ergonomics, faster auto-brew and a wider aroma range. It has a subtle 3-D flavor on the palate that stimulates all 36Mbuds on the taste sensor.

Keurig is just a high-volume, ad-driven, minivan cup holder coffee.

Yes, Flavia support would be nice, but I certainly hope that they don't go the Mr. Coffee route. That would be looking backward in so many ways. Pentax is dooooommmmmed!!!

Yes, but the K-3 should grind them for you. The AF drive could be leveraged to this task.

Really cool is, even when there are no beans in the lens - an automatic sound emulator makes you think you're grinding away! Sound emulation is the key new thing in 1.20 (I am beta tester).
