How to uprgade firmware on 5D Mark II

I understand that there has been at least one (and maybe more) firmware upgrades to the 5D Mark II since I bought my units in June '09. I'm especially interested to see if there are time lapse capabilities as well as any other features/functionality that I can use. I'm not really sure how I would go about finding this info or upgrading my cameras. thanks, Pete17

The instructions on what to do are in the download as well as a list of what is updated or fixed - and that is also shown on the download page.
