Canon releases (yet another) firmware update v.1.2.1 for 7D

From the Canon Japan website:

EOS 7D Firmware Update Version 1.2.1

Firmware changes

Firmware Version 1.2.1 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

  1. Extends the timing at which the high temperature warning indicator is displayed and the timing of automatic shut down of the camera due to a rise in internal temperature during Live View or EOS Movie functions.
  2. Optimizes program shift when the ISO setting of the camera is set to AUTO.
  3. Corrects a misspelling in the French-language menu.
  4. Corrects a phenomenon in which vertical magenta-colored banding appears in still images taken in movie-shooting mode.
    (This only occurs when in Manual exposure mode and when the ISO speed is set to “H”. Note that this phenomenon only affects units with Firmware Version 1.2.0)

    EOS 7D Firmware Update Version 1.2.2

    Firmware changes
    Firmware Version 1.2.2 incorporates the following fixes.

    1.Fixes a phenomenon in which the set aperture moves when shooting movies in manual exposure mode using some Canon lenses (such as macro lenses).
    2.Fixes the AF point-selection behavior of the C.Fn III-7 (Manual AF pt. selec. pattern) custom function when set to [1].
    3.Fixes the AF point display for the viewfinder electronic level when shooting in the vertical position.
    4.Corrects misspellings in the Spanish and Thai menus for applicable products.

    Have you tried this new firmware ?
    It seams that they have fixed the aperture in manual exposure problem.
    It would be nice to get confirmed that the video stutter/freeze frame are now gone.

    Is there any way I can update to 1.2.2 straight from 1.1.0?

    I am not able to get any of the firmwares between 1.1.0 and 1.2.2 from canon sites, to be able go step by step.
