Technically there was no new FSA beyond 12B37 and therefore there should not be any newer software, however some people did report that there is a theoretical difference between the earlier software vs the later version of the 12B37 update in that the later update refuses to shift to 6th gear before 40 mph and then shifts down again at 39 instead of being able to get into 6th at 35 mph at light throttle or steady state cruising and then shifting back down at 33-34 mph.

Now if there were further changes at the factory level this we don't readily know.
