For those who haven’t yet noticed the glowing blue light on their Wii consoles, Nintendo has quietly released version 3 of its system software. Much of the improvements are to the Wii’s “Channel” interface, which help usability.

The full changes from version 2 to 3 are:

Wii Menu

* The weather forecast will now be displayed on the Forecast Channel icon in the Wii Menu.
* Headline news will now be displayed on the News Channel icon in the Wii Menu.
* The current time will now be displayed in the Wii Menu.
* The area around the Wii Message Board button will now flash when a message arrives.

Wii Message Board

* You're now able to rearrange the order of your Wii Friends in the address book.
* You're now able to go into the Wii Friends registration screen by pressing the A Button on a blank spot in the address book.
* Envelope message icons will now appear on the calendar only on the dates when a message is received.
* Your message sending history will now be displayed in Today's Accomplishments.
* You can now scroll the message text by pressing the B button on the message screen.

Wii Shop Channel

* The search function on Virtual Console has been enhanced.

One can instantly tell whether or not the firmware was properly installed by inspecting the brand new digital clock that displays the time on the main screen. Currently, the only way to obtain the new system software is through the Wii's Wi-Fi Internet connection, as games have yet to ship with the firmware update included.

I later found out that it also blocks the freeloader disc for gamecube imports.
