Is there a Firmware v1.3 manual?

I keep reading about all this great stuff that is in the latest firmware. I am getting my K10D shortly and I'd like to know what I can do, and how to do it, once I upgrade.

Thanks

Pentax Imaging - Software & Firmaware Updates


1.1 was the most significant change.
the other addendums were just quick ad ons. nothing major.
there is a pdf link in there that should show you the details of the firmware upgrade.

The specific changes are listed with each update, with PDF files added to updates offering significant changes (firmware v1.10, for example). Since firmware v1.3 does not change the way you might use the camera (only adds internal support for the latest lenses), no manual or instructions (PDF or otherwise) are included.

Thanks!

I hope to buy my K10D Kit sometime this week or next. I just depends on how fast my "Uncle Sam" can give me my money back!

on the pentax site is a history of changes I believe with each version of software, download and keep that if you wish. Most of the changes are to make things work that were promised but not ready at time of camera release, or bug fixes

Are all the upgrades in 1.1 and 1.2 contained in 1.3? Since my K10D came with 1.0 do I have to install them all in order, or can I just jump straight to v1.3?

Just for those that didn't know, the Grand Prix Edition comes with a 1.3 booklet!
