Odd (and wrong) that the posting date shows 11/3 - I was on that page and downloaded 2.0.9 this past Monday evening, 11/7.

Super Random, but when I saw the post, somehow the advertisement below seem to complement it.

Once the files are uploaded, these will be the direct links:
http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0400045402EN/01/5d2-v211-win.zip
http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0400045402EN/01/5d2-v211-mac.dmg

They don't work yet, but it's possible they might work before the link that takes you to the license page will.

I have kind of a basic question.  Are the releases cumulative?  In other words, if you download and install the 3rd update release (for example), does the third release include the 1st and 2nd releases or do you have to do them in sequence?

Every new firmware release is complete and independent.

Im not to sure but it should be cumulative that is the newer firmware should contain the previous one. Tha means if there is two firmware update and you didnt install the previous one you can just download and install the newer one without any problem. At least that is how i have done it before.

That's a shame: so many firmware with new functionalities and updates for that prosumer camera, and almost any for the professional and expensive 1D IV: the only EOS still without manual sound control.

My 400D doesn't have manual sound control  ;)

The page does currently show the new firmware but the download link takes you nowhere :-)

Yes, the updates are cumulative.  So, if you're running 2.0.4 on your 5DII and you install 2.1.1 (when available), it will include the changes in 2.0.8, 2.0.9, etc.

Neuro what was the 2.0.9 about?

Supposedly, "Improves writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards." However, it also improved performance with fast UDMA6 cards.  In some testing I performed recently, a SanDisk Extreme Pro 90 MB/s card on a 5DII with 2.0.8 was barely faster than an old 20 MB/s card.  With 2.0.9, the 90 MB/s card outperformed (albeit slightly) a 60 MB/s card.

4k video anyone ;-) It will probably fix a few misspelt menu options in Latvian and or Aluet. It would be awesome to see something big but the .1.1 tends to suggest minor tweaks, anything major would likely have demanded a .2.0

Preparations for the firmware update:

Windows
 After the downloaded compressed file (.zip) is extracted, a firmware folder is created.*Extracting the downloaded file: Right-click the zip file, and then select Extract All to extract the file.

Macintosh
 After the downloaded compressed file (.dmg file) is extracted, a firmware folder is created. *Extracting the downloaded file: The downloaded folder is automatically extracted, and a firmware folder is created. If the download folder cannot be automatically extracted, double-click the folder.

The extracted folder contains the firmware (file name: 5D200211.FIR, file size: 9,754,588 bytes) and instructions on the firmware update procedures (a PDF file in five languages: Japanese, English, French, Spanish, and Simplified Chinese). Before starting the firmware update operations, please be sure to confirm the contents of the download and read through the instructions.
