Note about the different Firmwares[]

Cameras with the 1.00d firmware can/must use the CHDK version for 1.00e - the autobuild already just copies this, so when you have a 1.00d cam you will find YOUR version in the autobuild.

Development is happening in the 1.00e tree, then compiled and just renamed for the 1.00d people.
