A full changelog has not been released, though OCZ's Tony has requested for more information to be released, he has so far been turned down, OCZ's Forum tech's have also requested that everyone update to it as it is supposed to have a lot of fixes in it, they also say it should not slow the drive down and some of their testers claimed it slightly increased performance.

If you do run into problems, such as a drive slow down or lagging, then they suggest that you format and reinstall the OS, they are currently uncertain if you can flash back to 2.15.
