One change is in response to a bug report by Frostschutz. Another (maybe not so) interesting thing is the mention of the device code names alyssum and pika.

My H2O just updated too. The download was a fair bit quicker than usual. The release notes say that now the Ratings and Reviews feature is enabled - "Tap the new Reviews tab on your book's Details screen to see what other Kobo readers have to say. Add your own reviews for books you've read... but no spoilers, please!"

Only works with Kobo-bought-and-synced books.

Mine has just updated. I bought in Italy and it's the first time I get such an early update, usually I'd have to wait for months after a new official update is released.

v3.12.1 Seems to clear the cover image after opening the cover. I've tried it on a couple of books and it looks good.

(YMMV)

Much later: Nevermind.

The shadow of the cover is still there.

Just wishful thinking.

My two H2Os have updated OTA when I've forced a sync.

This is the very first time I get the latest FW version so fast (without needing a manual upgrade)... The solved bug must have been really critical.

As PeterT said, this firmware version had a very short beta cycle. The reason for this was that it has very few changes in it. The only changes we were told about were:
  • Some customers may have seen an 'Oops' message and/or greyed out chapters after purchasing a book. After applying this update, this state can be fixed by removing the book from your eReader and re-downloading it.
  • If you long-pressed a word at the top of a page while reading, the dictionary popup may not have been displayed.

I assume that Kobo considered the first one a serious problem as it actually prevents people from reading the books. One situation this problem happened in was when a preview was downloaded and then purchased. In the past, the book was not reloaded correctly. New books will load correctly, but any books that already have this problem will needed to be removed from the device and downloaded again.

In my testing, I found no other changes. We were explicitly told that the chapter refresh fix for the Aura was not included.

Kobo has stated this is only being release to the Glo, Aura, Aura HD and Aura H2O.

Calibre already supports this firmware version. I allow for a minor release like this when I update the supported version.

Thanks for the info david.

I can attest to v3.12.1 working with the current version of Calibre (2.18).

Nope. Patches are always release dependent
