This firmware has several bug fixes and enhancements, as listed below.
I don't know as 1 bug fix would actually qualify as "several"?!?

That little quibble aside, this is an unexpected (but pleasant) surprise. I had assumed development for the Clip+ was deader than dead.

I wanted to check to see if my Clip+ needed updating, so I first downloaded the Sansa Updater. It didn't say there was new firmware available, just the manual. However, the website said the latest version was 1.02.18, whereas I have 1.02.16A. So, I went to the manual firmware installation page, and read through the directions. It said at the end to go into the system information on the player and check that the firmware version is now 1.02.16. I'm just wondering; is this a typo or do I actually have the latest version? I just don't want to accidentally brick my player or something.

Typo, I assume. If you're installing version 18 of the firmware, that's what the System Info. should say as well.

When installing manually, it is critical that the firmware file downloaded is unzipped or decompressedprior to transfer to the Sansa. Additionally, the file must be placed in the root directory, and not in any of the folders present.
When you unplug, the "firmware upgrade in progress" screen will appear.
There is a normal delay of a few days between posting the latest firmware builds here on the forum, and inclusion to the automated Sansa Updater. If you have any problem installing manually, the Sansa Updater will transfer and decompress the file automatically for you, a few days after the initial release.

I'm trying to install the update on my clip. The updater tells me same ase OLEDCRT. I tried the manual download.
I clicked on it & it wanted to extract w/winzip. They're telling me it's not free anymore. I tried downloading 7 zip (c-net says it's great & can open all zip files).
It extracted it into my vlc program & msg says that's not an option w/that program.
Is there some way I can extract this file w/o having to purchase winzip
