firmware version differences?

I saw a thread yesterday on the firmware version on the Kindle.
I looked at mine and it is 3.0.2. It sounds like I could load 3.0.3 if I wanted to, and maybe some day Amazon will download it through wifi for me.
I was wondering, are there any new features that would make me want to do this? Anything bad to make me not want to do it?
thanks

I've been using v 3.0.3 since shortly after acquiring my KINDLE. I was not at all familiar with v 3.0.2 but had heard of the random reboot issue. I can detect no difference but have had no issues, random reboot or otherwise.

I know of nothing bad about v 3.0.3.

Thanks Doug, I haven't had any reboot problems, so I think I'll wait for the Kindle Gods to update me.

I'm running 3.0.3 and still get random reboots but luckily it's very rare. I did loose my place though.

Here is a very good post from Tierstan that lists the various firmware versions for the Kindle 3 and what changes were made in each version:
