thanks mate. I was waiting for Samsung NZ to push out the update. I have a vodafone handset. I know it has been approved by vodafone, Will wait for a few more days and then download this one. This is the open market Aussie one right?

Most stock ones are... that's why swype and swiftkey do so well.

I had swiftkey one my one x was great but when I installed on S4 didn't work for me at all can't explain exactly why. Of course not using Samsung standard its horrible, now I'm using the stock keyboard and its great other example how vanilla Google android is great in it self. Personally cannot wait for the Google S4 version to be released so roms will be available for our devices. In a perfect world both versions will have exactly the same hardware and we will be able to install stock Google firmware
