Welcome to the latest version of PlayStation® HOME. It's a relatively small update, but it contains some key improvements to speed things up for everyone. The initial login speed has been improved, as has the loading speed of characters and some of the graphics.
An important update in this patch is to the system that stores item data. This should prevent items, like rewards, from being lost in the future. With this fix in place the team can then set about restoring your lost items, and we will bring you more news on that soon.
We’ve made a change to the way you report other players from within the Home Safe Screen. From now on you will be able to report one player for one reason rather than multiple players for multiple reasons. We have made this change as we found many players simple selected every single reason type when reporting people. This made life very difficult for our moderators, as it would obscure the real reason for the complaint. Please try to choose an appropriate grief type when reporting someone – it really does help us to process your complaint.
The majority of this update is made up of bug fixes and small changes and improvements. For example, here are a few fixes that were asked for recently in the forums:
Enjoy your time in Home and please share your experiences and thoughts with us via the forums. We really do read them.

This week sees the launch of a huge update for the Audi Home Terminal including a fantastic new game – A1 Windows – and a first for Home, the introduction of the Audi presentations, with your very own virtual host, Ralf.

I just wanted to say, i was a bit dissappointed with finding out there was no Fang or Hope costumes from Final Fantasy 13.
I personally don't like Hope's look, but i figure other users would like to have his costume, as i would love to have Fang's costume. There is something about the Double Bladed Lance that gets me! LOL
I was also talking to other users on Home today about being able to stream music from your Playstation into your apartments.
I was wondering if and when it will happen, because i would like to have different music whilst playing the salt shooter game on sodium.
now i understand if that is not possible and please do not bit my head off for suggesting it! :P
I would like to finish by saying thanks for taking the time to read my rant, and I hope to see you all online! :D
