I believe I have the raspbian version from the main website
I've noticed in other posts people with newer firmware and kernels but I've ran apt-get update && upgrade && dist-upgrade and made sure I've got latest and greatest at least from apt.

that's as of today what's showing but as mentioned I've seen newer kernels and firmware in screenshots in other threads and such.
I noticed that I dont have rpi-update with my distro I installed.
does it work with this distro?
and is there a changelog to see what's new in the firmware/kernels?
where I can find the changelogs to see what's new and is it ok to manually install rpi-update and run it would it work on my verison of raspbian?
I started with the raspbian on this sites preferred distros so was just curious if I could get better performance with the newer firmware/kernels ive seen in other threads.
I thought apt-get upgrade && dist-upgrade would update my kernel and firmware but I guess not
thanks for any help and such
