The firmware update 1.10 added that plus a couple of other goodies:

Check out an illustrated PDf version here

Here's a summary;

* Using the camera's built-in flash, you can now wirelessly control external Pentax flashes. Previously, you needed an accessory flash mounted in your camera's hot shoe, but now the built-in flash can act as a control flash.

* In autofocus select mode, you can program the AF button to instantly return to the center autofocus point.

* In Tv or Av mode, you can now program the second e-dial to adjust your ISO setting.

* In any exposure mode except Sv and TAv, you can change your ISO setting with the front e-dial while pressing the OK button. The camera will display your ISO in the viewfinder and on the top LCD panel as you adjust your setting.

* In TAv mode, you can program the green button to return to the camera's program line. Previously this functionality was only available in M mode.

* You now have additional options for programming your e-dials in P mode.

* Pressing the green button while adjusting flash exposure compensation will now return you to the default value.

* Corrected an issue in some rare cases where a long exposure might produce a vertical stripe.

* Corrected an issue where the battery charge indicator would sometimes show empty in bulb exposure mode.

I've been using this for awhile and it's an excellent upgrade. The other thing I love about this camera's adjustablity is that in "custom setting" you can change what each E dial does with shutter, aperture and ISO settings to suit how you want the camera to work.
This is what makes the K10D such a flexible camera.

Great tip! And thanks to pcarfan for reminding me that you can set the rear dial in Av & Tv for ISO. That is one of the things that makes the K10D so great.
