I had this impression right away after updating the firmware. Like everyone else I'm lacking a way to do a direct comparison.

Live view still looks less clear than image review. The difference is that now the LV image seems noisy, but it doesn't appear to be interpolated from a much lower resolution. It's much easier to focus at 100%. I used to have to find focus by looking for clues … finding blobs of detail with a lot of contrast and guesstimating when their contrast was at its highest. Now the image just pops into focus like you might expect.

It's possible that this is just an artifact of making exposure preview optional. I haven't had enough chance to work with the new firmware in the real world.

Fingers are crossed … this was my single biggest complaint about the camera.
