Newbee: Update of firmaware neccessary? 212->22 ??

Hello
I just received my IR Toy, and it seems to need an upgrade of its firmware!! Is that true? The firmware 22  is from year 2011, why is it not on the device already?
Has mine a version of V212 !!??? should I put version 22??? strange!! (it is asking for at least version 12!!

12, 20,V212 is confusing a lot!!

See the output from record-test.bat:


 Opening IR Toy on COM5 at 115200bps...
 IR Toy Firmware version: V212
 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 This utility is for firmware version 20 and up.
 Please update your IR TOY firmware version 12 to the latest firmware.
 See documentation and firmware update procedures at

 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, you should update to the V222 firmware.
http://http://dangerousprototypes.com/docs/USB_IR_Toy_firmware_update

The first digit is the hardware version + can be V1 or V2 hardware
The last 2 digits are the firmware version.

I can't comment on why an older f/w version was on a product you purchased recently.

With IrScrutinizer, sending works only with FW 2.2. IIRC, capturing works with 2.1 too.
