It's not that we don't believe you, it's just that we don't believe you ;)

Just kidding. I'll wait anyway.

Fair enough when Tuesday comes around you see the firmware work very well

Since the ability to load Magic Lantern shows that the cameras are not checking for a digital signature when loading firmware updates, there is no way to be sure some random file has not been tampered with. Given that, I would be waiting to download it from Canon itself. Sure, if you have some big-budget production stalled on the new features, you're not going to run the bodies on your wifi, and you can afford to buy another if it's bricked, it might make sense to take the risk.

Does it enable a faster shutter speed limit in Auto ISO?

Did you guys notice any changes to the AF, especially in Servo Mode, or is it all about using lenses with the max. aperture value of f/8?

Well, I cracked and upgraded.

For me, the most significant improvement is that I can finally use my Kenko DGX Pro 300 (1.4x teleconverter) without it locking up the camera!

On 1.1.3 the camera would lock up while the image was being written to flash, the problem occurring with every lens I tried aside from the 70-300L. Now it is working fine with everything I have tried :-)

No. As far as I can see the only new menu items is for HDMI out now having a mirroring option.

That wouldn't require a new menu item, just a few higher SS values added to select from.

Yeah, in the menu. And as I have said, there are no other changes that I can see.

By the way, I am familiar with my camera, but thanks for positing the screenshot ;-)a

I'm kind of a cutting edge kind of guy and believe the firmware is legit, but when I think about a $3500 camera and simply waiting 2 days...I'm waiting.

Totally understandable, although enough of us are using it so there is no question it's not legit in my eyes.
It's only a few days to wait anyway, I'm sure those who are a bit worried about using it can last that long.

I've spent two days working with this firmware now. I Downloaded the one that was posted here on this forum in the firmware sticky, and it's working flawlessly.

It inspired me to do a write up an the f/8 AF;

BTW - is it possible to re-flash an older FW version if you aren't happy with the new one?
