FL-36 anyone ever upgraded its firmware?

I still have FL-36 from my 4/3 DSLR days. Later on I used it on E-P1 and now I am trying to use it on X-Z1. Till now I did not use it a lot - just for some shots from time to time. Last night I started to test it more toroughly on X-Z1 and found out that it wont "zoom" below 35mm/17mm (4/3).

I can cycle flash trough Manual or TTL, when mounted on camera. Off camera it will cycle trough Auto / Manual.
I connected camera with attached falsh to a computer and checked updates.
Flash is version 0.9 and I can not update it.
Is problem in current camera - X-Z1 or flash can not be upgraded?

I was hoping I would get better functionality with flash if I suceed to update it...

Looking forward to your reply!
