That's not in this update. This list are made by some people thinking they can force Sony to add all of these features everytime a new PS3 feature by spamming the comments on the PS Blog. Whilst their heart is in the right place... they're more annoying than convincing now...

I was having some freezing issues with some .avi files from PS3MediaServer and this update has seemed to fix those. Overall, my trophies synch super fast, the browser seems to run faster, and overall XMB seems to move faster.

I updated the first post to include news of reports that PS3 Trophy Profile Viewing has been improved, and is now near-instant to PS3 users with this update.

Also, PS3-Hacks have confirmed that Open Remote Play still works.
Update: It’s out... And ORP still works.

Your first post and that is all you have to say? ROFLMAO! Next time YOU write the post then..

Moving along to something more important and on-topic, has anyone tried the Open Remote Play v1.0 BETA on PS3 Firmware 2.76 yet?

I wonder if Sony blocked it with this "minor" update..

You mean 'without further ado'. 'Adieu' is French for 'goodbye' and makes no sense whatsoever in this context.
