Whatever update you're seeing isn't that new. It's not seeing a new update for my camera,
and last one was at least a couple weeks ago. It doesn't fix the lockups, at least
not all of them.

I have checked ever since I got mine last weekend and haven't had an update available. Just checked now and still no update. I haven't used it enough to experience lockups but I have had the settings menu quit itself in the middle of me toggling through the options.

That *is* a lockup..
It'll do it at other times as well, but randomly.

Meant lockup as in lost live video out or freeze/stop during recording but yes my menu issue is definitely a bug. Has happened multiple times.

Have you guys tried entering the serial number manually into the GoPro update site? GoPro's site was detecting my camera normally but today I decided to enter the serial number instead, and was able to download an update. Wish there was a way to compare or check the firmware versions...

There is. Look at the version.txt file in the MISC dir on the card.

Cool, guess I never saw that before. Looks like my camera is up to the latest - not new firmware (03.01.09).

I thought there was a new release -

You may sometime! I had 4 good flights with the GP3 on my quad until it locked up in flight and caused a crash! :-(

Now it's in my FPV Traxxas Summit until I can confirm there are no more lock ups.
