Has anyone figured out what the firmware update changes or fixes?

I'm curious because I'm very much torn between this printer and the Epson P900, trying to weigh the pros and cons of each and decide which one to buy.

P900 pro- roll paper

Pro-1000 pro- refillable ink.

I use the Pro-1000 as it has bigger tanks and is (if you’re into it) user refillable through 3rd party vendors.

I've done a lot of research and read a lot of reviews on both printers.

Even though the Pro-1000 has bigger tanks, all the reviews I've read have mentioned how it wastes enormous amounts of ink on random automated head cleanings.

The other advantage of the Epson besides roll paper (which is something I'd like to have) is a maximum print length up to 129" vs 49" on the Canon. I do have a couple 74" panoramas in my archives.

At this point I'm leaning towards buying the Epson.
