New ZuneHD firmware brings support for 3D games and apps, more

Things have quieted down a bit on the ZuneHD front, but that does not mean Microsoft has been sitting still.

The ZuneHD team has just released version 4.3 of the ZuneHD firmware, which brings support for 3D applications and games. The previous version of the Zune and Xbox programming environment did not support 3D hardware acceleration, which is hopefully fixed by this update.

The video above also shows some keyboard improvements in action.

The rest of the changelog is below:
