Firmware Version 1.2.1 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

1. Extends the timing at which the high temperature warning indicator is displayed and the timing of automatic shut down of the camera due to a rise in internal temperature during Live View or EOS Movie functions.

2. Optimizes program shift when the ISO setting of the camera is set to AUTO.

3. Corrects a misspelling in the French-language menu.

4. Corrects a phenomenon in which vertical magenta-colored banding appears in still images taken in movie-shooting mode. (This only occurs when in Manual exposure mode and when the ISO speed is set to "H". Note that this phenomenon only affects units with Firmware Version 1.2.0)

When do we get the improvements just added to the 5D? Wasn't the 7D supposed to be Canon's 'video' dslr?

(And a faster readout time of the chip would be nice too but I would guess that's a pipe dream.)

A faster readout probably needs higher clocking which leads to heat problems. It's a guess but i'm pretty sure. 5d2 improvements are "just" AGC fix or is there more?
is this 7d update worth anything for filming?

the overheating updates makes this firmware worth installing in my opinion. that's definitely an issue that can come up when shooting video.
