RELEASE: Zune Firmware v3.1

image Yep.  Zune Firmware 3.1 has released for all versions of Zune devices.  30GB, 80GB, 120GB, 4GB flash, 8GB flash, and 16GB flash.

Technically, the Zune Desktop software should automatically detect that a new rev is available, but I’m told that it won’t necessarily detect & deliver the firmware to your device immediately.  I suspect this is the Zune teams way of parsing out the delivery to people slowly so that there isn’t a massive crush on the download servers of people trying to download 131MB of software.
