website says they

* Added English dictionary.
* Added Low Battery Warning.
* Automatically disable booting when the battery does not have a sufficient power level (to avoid halting during start up procedure)
* Selection of preferred program for opening files, if multiple programs are present.

Bug Fixes or Improvements

* Improved battery life.
* Several translation updates, multiple languages.
* Screen update for playing list.
* The contents of SD cards are now displayed correctly when inserted.

Sounds promising...

Strange. When I unpack the update file I don't see the English dictionary they promise.
The option to select a preferred program was already there (well, at least it was in the April Onyx firmware I'm using).
I don't use playlists and I never saw the contents of an SD card displayed incorrectly.
That leaves merely the power management improvements, which are probably not that significant. They've been improving that for so long now that there is probably not much left to gain.
And finally, the .upd file is date June 29. Why not a more recent version?
So, I don't think it sounds that promising.

If installed, in the about-section it reads: "Firmware Version: 1.5.1 20110629"
