Got the update today via PC Companion.

First impressions:

- Much faster to operate
- Fast Boot time.
- Media Shortcut on home screen seems to be wrong (Not finished)
- 3D Camera and 3D Album applications
- Added option to backup and restore application and system settings to uour google account
- Xperia facebook integration (not sure if it was not there before...)
- On long press of the power button, an option for a screen capture is added.

Does this Firmware change the compression rate of the picture taken with the camera?

Yes, root will be lost if you update via PC Companion. In any case, PC Companion will not allow you to update your phone with unlocked bootloader. You will hit an error.
