The list of fixes and improvements in firmware v2.0.0.11 (over the previous v1.1.0.2) are:

Improved performance of the white balance

The accuracy of the white balance presets and the auto white balance function is higher with version 2.0.0.11. This results in better skin tones and better general colour rendering.

Improved Video quality

The visibility of compression artifacts is reduced due to lower video compression.

Lens calibration

For coded Leica lenses, the image homogeneity (colour shift) has been improved.
