Official firmware updateEdit
In February 2009, Canon released a firmware update for the G10. You can find it (and description of what it does) here. It is labeled 184.108.40.206 and the camera reports version GM1.02A after the update. The firmware date is reported as "Dec 2 2008". The update is based on camera serial number but seems to apply to firmware releases 1.00F and 1.00H, converting them to 1.02A on the camera.
There may also be a physical mark on the battery cover of G10 cameras if the firmware was upgraded to 220.127.116.11 by Canon; details here.
