It’s been almost four months since Sony released the last firmware update for the PS Vita so fans will be happy to know that there’s now a new update to download that introduces some commonly requested features. System software version 3.10 raises the application icon limit on the PS Vita’s home screen from 100 to 500 and introduces a new calendar app that allows you to set up and share events (such as game release dates) with your friends.

Here are the full patch notes for the new firmware:

• You can now display up to 500 applications on the home screen.

• A Calendar application has been added for PS Vita, allowing you to set up gaming events with your friends. Sync your Google calendar to have all your events with you on your PS Vita. You can also share your favorite events by using the Messages and Email applications.

• A new “Manage Content on Memory Card” option has been added to the Content Manager application. You can now view the data on your memory card, making it easier than ever to manage content on your PS Vita. You can now view memory usage by content type, and delete content and applications.

• You can now send and receive voice messages using the Messages application on PS Vita. Exchange voice messages with your friends and players on PS4 and PS Vita.
