Firmware Version 4.00 was a major version upgrade from 3.xx. It was released in November 2019 and made some significant changes to the console. It is encouraging to see Behringer continue with firmware updates, especially on such an old product. There was a major GUI re-design that makes everything easier to see and read and a major functionality upgrade that addresses what was probably the biggest complaint of X32 users: bank of eight routing.

See below for release notes from Behringer. I have bolded the ones I found most interesting/useful.
