I recall that Profiles turned up simultaneously on the BDT220, WD TV Live, Sony BDP-S390 and PS3 on the day it was announced.

The Netflix player on the BDT110 looks almost identical, but it seems to use a different version of the video encodes; "Example Short 23.976" in that set does not have bit rate/resolution information on it. It's also constrained to 720p and has a bug which never got fixed, outputting a blank black frame every time it switched to an encode of a different bit rate.
Panasonic told me they only do updates for two years. My DMP85 BD player never received a firmware update for the UI. I don't expect an update on my S60 either, which is fine with me since I don't need the extra features.
