Firmware Version 4.01 was a minor version upgrade from 4.00. It was released in December 2019 and is mostly minor improvements and bug fixes. They are the kind of improvements that will make things a little easier but will probably be forgotten. Being able to copy the Dual FX engines from A to B and B to A is a useful feature and will save time, but is the kind of feature that will leave you wondering why it took so long and wasn’t included from the beginning. This is one feature upgrade that may seem small but will be appreciated by everyone that has been using the console for all these years. This is the kind of thing that most of us were trying to figure out assuming it was there and frustrated to discover it was missing. If you haven’t used the console before try to imagine eq’ing a graphic eq on a monitor and wanting to copy that to the B channel. You would need to switch back and forth and recreate the eq on the B channel. I did this by switching to GEQ on faders mode and swapping between the A and B channels with the Layer Up and Layer Down buttons with my right hand while matching faders with the left hand.

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