Kx FW silent update?

for those interested, there seems to be a new firmware for the K-x.
for those not interested, move along. nothing to read

i downloaded the version 1.01 from pentax jp on 12/5/2009 and the MD5 checksum is the same as the current 1.01 fw from pentax.usa and pentax canada

the EXIF for the current USA firmware from photome is

the EXIF for the current JAPAN firmware from photome is

doing a compare on both binaries yielded about 1.5mb of differences.

i've posted this difference in a different thread
