Well.. it looks like they have now. You'll see a post from September 18th from a Dell Employee on this page with a download link to BIOS Version A09 with instructions on using it:

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19449717/20187647.aspx#20187647

It also looks like they just added to the official downloads page for the XPS 8500 today, as I see BIOS Version A09 listed with a date of September 25.

Here's a direct link to the A09 BIOS page on the official support site:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/xps-8500?driverId=4RR90&osCode=W764&fileId=3007782062

It looks like the description is hosed though (as it mentions Win 8 and needing a DOS boot disk, even though this is the page in the XPS 8500 download list for 64 bit Win 7). But, the rest of it looks right for Win 7 (look under compatibility, then look at instructions where it says to copy it to your desktop and run it).

The official download resulted in an internal server error when I just tried to grab it out of curiosity though. The one from the September 18th forum post is a good link.
