What's in this update? Does it fix the P6000 battery life problem?

John Biehler says:

The following improvements have been made in version 1.2.
- When shooting in a user setting mode at an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic and Distortion control enabled, some JPEG images were corrupted. This issue has been resolved.
- As distortion control cannot be used in conjunction with interval timer shooting, settings have now been modified so that they cannot be enabled simultaneously.
- Electric current consumption has been reduced.
- When shooting in “P”, “S”, “A”, or “M” mode at an image size setting other than 13M 4224 ×3168 and an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic, the image size setting switched to 13M 4224 ×3168 when the camera was turned off and then turned on again. This issue has been resolved.

From here. Just updated with no immediate issues found.

Yes, battery life is tremendously better. Previously, the battery would completely drain after a few days, even if I didn't take any photos. That no longer happens.

it doesn't say anything in the release notes and may just be co-incidence but the gps seems much more responsive also
