Latest Transmission TSB info

So I slogged through the 60+ page thread and struggled to find the actual information related to the most recent TSB or service bulletin. Can anyone provide the latest?

BMW will reflash the DME and trans ECU with updated software. If you have warranty, it's free. If not, you pay.

I had my 2007 done for free under 4yr/50k mile warranty.

I have a 2009, which came with the updated software. It's good; not at all a slushbox. Very manual-ish "engaged," similar to the DCT in my M3 (but obviously, not as fast with the shifts or as even with the power application.) If you're unhappy with what you have, it's worth a trip to the dealer, IMHO.

When did this software come out and how can I tell if it has already been applied to my ride without a trip to the dealer? (I'm well out of warranty)

Not be a smart a$$, but when in auto mode, does it shift like ****? From a stop, it will hunt and shift from first through third gears acting like it has no idea what it wants to do. The reflash helps, but in my opinion it is still not very good---but not so bad I'd want to get rid of the car.
