Xbox 360’s fall dashboard update list leaked ?

A user of the official Xbox.com forum named “Post Up” has posted a list of what he/she says are the changes and updates included in the upcoming dashboard update. The list looks pretty legit and what adds a bit more authenticity to this is the fact that the post has since been removed.
