I see there is new (3-Nov) firmware up for the HG659b gateway on the Spark website:

http://help.spark.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/35153#devp_st_content_5

Can anyone point me in the direction of some release notes or a changelog for this update? I can see minor visual branding changes to the interface throughout (though menu text is now blurrier...) but wondered what else had changed under the hood.

As proof you should always read all the instructions first, make sure you backup your config before you apply. Can confirm this still works with Snap for UFB with the updated firmware.

Probably just changing the branding from Telecom to Spark?

I installed in pretty much as soon as it came out, nothing changed other than the Spark name and logo being used - haven't noticed any improvements/changes but then again it has been pretty rock solid since I bought it.
