    Run Apple Software Update in Windows, and it will offer you 3.2. You can then click on more about this update (or similar words) and read what is being changed. You can then decide based on your hardware and usage whether you want to proceed.

    Personally I always do Apples updates unless there is very good reason not to. Sometimes wait a few days to serif there are lot of reports here in AD.

    3.2 has been out a good while now.

    I have done the Software Update and nothing in reference to Bootcamp has ever been offered. I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed and I would like to update Bootcamp because I am unable to install the additional Mac drivers on the Windows 7 side. Well, I downloaded the 3.2 update and it said I needed 3.1. I downloaded that and it said I needed 3.0 update. I can't find how to update Bootcamp to 3.2.

    I believe it's 3.2 now that I have searched. It says "non-critical 3.1" and "non-critical 3.2" so I'm not sure but I may already be running it.
