Firmware 1.2 first impressions...

I downloaded and applied the new fireware upgrade and as far my first impressions are, they must have changed the way the K10 exposes.
My K10 used to be consistantely 1/2-2/3 of a stop underexposed on a lot of lower light shots and now they seem to be brighter.
I was shooting in raw and processing with adobe camera raw .pef files (before when I left it on default I used to have to bump up the exposure, now it seems to be more consistately not needing any)
Has anyone else experenced this?
could Pentax be pleasing the "masses" and giving people a brighter photo? (in my experence most people prefer a well lit photo over something that is slightly dark)
I was using apeture priority.

any comments welcome!

I don't usually shoot raws but I have found that I usually have to set a minus 1/3 to 2/3 ev on most shots to get what I like. Sometimes it doesn't hold true but is easy enough to fix. I have always preferred a little higher saturation, and I don't like to blow out highlights.
