BTW does that number mean they have been working on this new version since August 3rd?
August 3rd is when the fw was created. However, at that point it would have needed to go through testing and quality control, and then possibly changed to fix some problems.
Usually you do not see such a gap between the release date and the date the fw was created, but there are many good reasons that could explain why.
It could even be a typo that was suppose to be 090830 or 090903 instead of 090803... who knows.
However, at the same time, knowing Samsung I wouldn't be surprised if they were just sitting on the fw for the last 7 weeks.
