Today, Nintendo sent out a Wii message notifying Wii users of a new firmware update. It seems that it's for the upcoming WiiWare titles coming out this May. Here's the letter Nintendo sent out:
Dear Nintendo Customer,
An update to your Wii Shop Channel is now available. This update is needed in order to access WiiWare games launching later this spring.
To receive this free update, please press the "Update" button located on the lower-right side of the screen or go to "Wii Settings" and select "Wii System Update" to begin.
For those who have already done the update on or after March 20th, you will not need to update again.
Thank you for updating your Wii console!
I can confirm that this does not affect the recent Twilight Hack exploit, and you can still launch homebrew. Also, the Wii is still at version 3.2x.
