    Nope and barely different from the beta released 3 months ago.
    Some say they are improved, some say they are worse its a flamewar over on the Creative forums.

    Improved my installation.

    I do regret jumping on the "64 Bit" wagon...

    Did the version number even change or was this simply a recompile without the debug flags?

    My Intel oboard HD audio is giving me comparable audio at the moment without skipping and popping in games so I'm not in a rush for creative drivers anymore.
