From my perspective, the one thing that makes this update worth while is the new "Concert Hall" reverb; it's really useful. The "humanization" feature is, in my view, a good idea, and it should be available on all parameters which in a physical piano would be subject to human inaccuracy. I have not actually been able to discern any real effect from it yet, but most likely the effect is subtle anyway.

But the felt pianos ... they are of no use to me.

I do like these felt presets a lot, particularly on the upright Yamaha U4.
Here’s an interesting recent article: https://www.musictech.net/guides/essential-guide/using-felt-piano-creatively/

Did you try to set it to max, then it's more easy to hear. But yes it's rather subtle, but if I use it and reduce piano state to 0.7 or something like that it sounds a lot more like the "older grand piano" sound that I'm used to from my parents C.Bechstein.

So far, I have only left it at the default position, but I'll experiment a bit with it, and with the condition slider.
