207w ago - Nintendo released a Wii Firmware update, version 4.1 today in Japan.
A bug fix to Wii Sports Resort, in which after playing a WiiWare/VC game off the SD card, and then playing Wii Sports Resort afterward, you would be forced to watch the how-to Wii Motion Plus video that normally plays only once on the initial play of Wii Sports Resort.
The usual warnings apply, updating is not recommended until more information is known about its effects on homebrew.
Bannerbomb is still working! You may check updates via Wiimposter Logs.
Version 4.1 of the System Menu was built on June 24th, 2009 and released on July 3rd, 2009.

212w ago - Recently PSP homebrew developers Xenogears and Becus25 have released a Custom Firmware Enabler.
This program will enable the functions of M33 CFW using ChickHen, except for Recovery and Pops.
Since installation is not permanent, the application must be run again after reboot in order to enable M33 functions. It also works with TA-088v3 motherboards, but sadly it doesn't support the PSP 3000 yet.
