From Hasselblad : “In the last release of 3.5.8R, we were unsuccessful in the upgrade of a small number of units. To solve the problem we have decided to issue a new release that will allow all CMOS based cameras to be fully upgraded to the latest functionality.
No new functionality has been added and if the update to 3.5.8R was successful for you, then there is no need to upgrade to 3.5.9R.”
