The 5D Mark III & Canon DPP Software Issue

Canon Japan has announced that an update to their Digital Photo Pro (DPP) software is planned for mid-April. This update will resolve the soft/blurred Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR RAW image problem.
 
Here is my translation of the Google Japanese-to-English translation of this announcement:
 
To customers using Digital Photo Professional version 3.11.10 with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR camera
 
April 5, 2012
 
We thank you very much for your patronage of Canon products.
 
It has been confirmed that the RAW development process used by Digital Photo Professional version 3.11.10 is not appropriate, generating somewhat blurred images. This is the version of DPP that is included on the CD in the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR box.
 
<Canon deeply apologizes>
 
Phenomenon
 
When Canon EOS 5D Mark III RAW images are processed by DPP version 3.11.10, generated images become somewhat blurred.
 
Affected Products
 
Canon Digital Photo Professional RAW Development Software version 3.11.10 included in the Canon EOS 5D Mark III box.
 
This problem will not be observed in other cameras.
 
<Actually, the Canon PowerShot G1 X is also affected.>
 
An update to the Digital Photo Pro software is expected to be published in mid-April.

Thanks for the link.  I am wanting to process images using the new Canon lens correction module.  I have used it on some images, and it makes a huge difference.  Unfortunately, I cannot save them without losing sharpness.

I'm also hoping for a firmware update to correct softness in video.    :(

...and the G1 X, although Canon seems to have forgotten to mention that.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Once they release the new DPP will they let us know.  When will Canon put a "check software update" option in DPP?  It's 2012, not 1994.

Just so people are aware. I have this problem with 450D too.
Not unique to this version but with the older software too.

the images were just as blurry and it was caused by luminance noise reduction defaulting to 2 (moving it to 0 takes away the blur)

its the same with 5d iii except the luminance control wont adjust the image unless you set it to 0 then swap to high speed. then you can swap back n forth at will and the luminance control will stay at 0
