Canon Pro-100 & Pro-10: new firmware does what?
1

On or about April 3, 2020, Canon made available new firmware for both the Pro-100 and the Pro-10. For each, the blurb with the downloader on the Canon website says simply, "To improve the printer quality." Obviously the Pro-1000 recently got the major firmware upgrade that increased the maximum paper length from 676mm (26.6 in) to 1200mm (47.2 in). I'm sure a lot of Canon users would like similar updates for the Pro-100 and Pro-10. But has anyone actually determined what these updates do?

FWIW, neither the thread about the problems some people have had installing this firmware nor the linked-to thread on the Canon website answers this basic question. I'm sure many of us would like to know, especially since the conventional wisdom is not to update firmware on a working printer unless there's some clear reason to do so.

Here's the exact text from the Canon USA website, for the Pro-100:
