Microsoft released a new firmware to the Surface RT today. I did not see any release notes with it. There were also about another 15-20 other updates. Anyone find any release notes for the firmware or notice any changes or improvements?

This is all I could find on the updates so far:
Microsoft's Surface: Wifi updates, pen improvements, more cover colors in pipeline | ZDNet
Microsoft fixes critical Windows, Office, IE security flaws | ZDNet

I used to frequently experience the Wi-Fi limited connectivity problem on my Surface and it would be infuriating as it would happen quite randomly (working perfectly one second, I switch to a different app, and it stops working, so I have to toggle Airplane mode on and off to get it working again). I only noticed this problem with dual band routers (2.4GHz and 5GHz), whereas I never had this problem with single band routers (2.4GHz).

Personally, I have seen no improvement in performance, nor did I expect any since they did not make any such statement. On that front though lots of people always seem to suffer from a quasi placebo effect. As for the firmware update, it has made no difference with respect to the limited connectivity problem, except that it now does not always say limited connectivity even if that is the case.

Things seem a bit smoother with the Surface now. There was an IE and flash update as well along with all the office apps. Also the firmware increased the maximum volume level I believe, however it sounds a little distorted now at maximum volume depending on what you're listening to.
