Difference between ICS 4.0.3 and ICS 4.0.4??

Now that we have heard the good news that Xperia Arc S will also start recieving 4.0.4 from this week onwards, can any one enlighten what benefits it will bring over our current 4.0.3???

Will basic issues like delayed phone dialer opening, improved battery life, lagging at times and overheating problem be addressed in that???? which should be the case to start with at least..... Will in unlock swipe camera key would be replaced with silent/vibrator key as was the case in GB?? I dont know who suggested sony to mess up with this swipe keys and put camera key instead of most important silent profile key....

Plus any other upgrades if any body knows???? I sincerely hope that it will address many issues once and for all and it must not state that " Caution: upgrade at your own risk!!!!!! Sony will not be responsible for any damage done as a result of this upgarde" like we had while upgrading from GB to ICS.... as if we are upgrading a beta rom and not an officially tested OS......

Hope to have some answers to these queries from some developers.....

Regards

You can find the major changes here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history

But there are also minor bug fixes and optimizations to the software of course.

The unlock screen still remains with unlock and camera.

Thank you, Captain Obvious.

Is it faster than switching phone into silent mode profile withiout unblocking it?

ADD: press home button, then press camera -> phone will unlocked and turn the camera on. It's pretty good way to unlock into camera mode and it's work now. So, why SE is breaked the switch into silent abillity?

Sorry for English.
