recommending that we use the site instead for the latest drivers.
That has been the standard recommendation as long as there has been any sort of download utility from IBM or Lenovo... its nothing new.
In most cases the latest drivers will appear first on the download site and a bit later through the download utility.

We (Lenovo) are also working hard to address the current issues seen with TVSU / TVUR / TI as well as improve their performance and usability. Even so, it is good to hear the tools are needed and being used.

no chronological filter, and absolutely no way to keep track of the latest released driver updates.
That's exactly what amazed me when Lenovo switched to the new support site: why didn't they recognize the site's primary use & importance to users: keeping up-to-date with fixes relevant their machine model/operating system? That should have driven the design process, I think.
Oh well, better late than never, I suppose...
One more thought/request for Lenovo: if a new Lenovo/Thinkvantage driver/program update merely includes new machine models other than the one Lenovo Update is running on, i.e no actual driver/program fixes, then the update should not be offered by the Lenovo Update program, even optionally, to that machine--it is irrelevant.

"Latest Drivers" has been on the Lenovo support site for a while now.....
Please read the explanatory text at the top of the table.

Yes, I knew about that list, but it's nothing like the old style update lists on www-307, customized for each machine model & OS.
But website changes always happen, I just wish some of the old bits had been the model for the new shiny bits...
