Newer Firmware on DS509+ than DS508 ?

Postby seanm » Mon Apr 20, 2009 1:28 pm

Does anyone know the differences between the DS508 DSM 2.1-0839 and the firmware for the DS509+ Version: DSM 2.1-0843; Build Date: 2009/04/13 ?

I thought the DS509+ was just a DS508 with a faster CPU a more memory ?

Would the DS509+ firmware run on the DS508 ?

I've seen 843 for other models, although it is not available to end users as yet.
