Is it just me or is the d800 shutter quieter/smoother after the FW update?

Dont you think Nikon would have boasted about such a change?  Why would they keep it a secret?

To keep the change list small and simple. Marketing doesn't want a seven page white paper with the gory details of everything that changed. They just want a few sentences that go over the major items.

Also, it would be an implicit admission that the original shutter was too loud. And marketing people do not want to admit to any shortcomings.
