Wii firmware update now available

Woke up to my Wii slot flashing this morning. A message on my Wii message board said that an update is available. The note from Nintendo said that the update contained an update to the Forecast Channel display on the main Wii Menu that would show the weather in my area. Also, the Wii Shop Channel now has a search function!

After updating my Wii from firmware version 2.2U to 3.0U, I noticed the Forecast Channel icon had changed. They’ve also added a clock to the main lower center of the Wii Menu, just above the date. I’m curious to see if there are any other new features added that they didn’t mention in the message.

[Update:  GoNintendo, NeoGAF, and other sites have more details about the update.]

Is your slot flashing today?
