I know I need to buy an Apex already, but I am still on my ACIII. I am wondering if there are release notes anywhere related to the last firmware updates for the ACII. I need to find out if it is worth updating or if I should just let it be for now and deal until I can get an apex. If there are fixes or features I could use I'd like to upgrade, but if there's nothing I need I'll just stick with what I have.

The latest for AC3/AC3pro is 3.4. The biggest changes in 3.4 from 3.3 are the graphing and the addition of a network setup web page. Also, the iPhone/iPad & Android apps require 3.4

If you have 3.3 or older - DEFINITELY upgrade. Be sure to read the readme.txt file in the downloaded firmware zip file. Make sure you download the proper zip file for your specific controller too... AC3 and AC3Pro use slightly different firmware.
