It works for me.

I set my D800 up to only release shutter when in focus.
Do I now assume it didn't work properly up to now and the new firmware has remedied that.
As someone who focus recomposes if it weren't working properly then that would make a big difference.
I am away from camera so haven't had chance to update it yet

I haven't updated yet either but it's nice to know that this bug has been fixed. When I mentioned it in a thread a month or so ago several others agreed but we were told that in its wisdom, Nikon's "bug" was actually an improvement. I called Nikon's tech. support, described how the "focus" parameter description in the manual was now meaningless. The tech. guy confirmed that his D800 worked the same way and promised to forward this up the chain. As I said, it's nice to know that the bug has been fixed and we didn't instead get an errata change that corrected the manual.
