New tune for ethanol?

Dealer called today to say my floorboards and hardware had arrived, and that I could come by to have them intalled. When I dropped the bike off the tech said it sounded lean, and that he would do the new tune for me. What tune? He said a new tune had just come out to adjust for the ethanol content in gas (up to 10% around here). He said it would help avoid starting problems and any poping on deceleration.
I won't get the bike back until tomorrow morning, so I don't know if I'll be able to tell any difference.
Can anybody tell me if they've experienced any performance changes with this tune?
