Sport Mode Software "upgrade"

Engine

Model: Carrera, Year:2007, Mileage:22,000, Type of use:Both Street & Track
I recently had Sport Mode software installed (997-044-902-02) by my local dealer on a Tip equipped Carrera. It adds the Sport Mode described in the owner's manual, but on-line websites like Suncoastparts.com describe it as "New from Porsche". Has Sport Mode software been updated? If so, what has changed?Their description states "in the higher gears, a hard-rev limiter helps protect the engine..." Does that mean the Tip will no longer upshift on its own at the limit in manual mode? If yes, can I damage the engine letting it rev until it hit the limiter?Thanks!
