The Hasselblad Xpan has been updated:

http://www.hasselblad.co.uk/products/level3.asp?secId=979&itemId=2698

Improvements:

Shutter speed and exposure information visible via viewfinder LCD
Multi exposure (up to nine exposures)
B-time prolonged to maximum of 540sec
Self-timer delay with 2sec or 10sec option
Flash sync at the beginning or the end of the exposure
Improved IR film performance for high speed B&W IR film
Rewind of film with option to leave a film tip out of the cassette
Electrical remote control release (optional release cord)
Dioptre lens with locking system
Lens shade for 45mm and 90mm lenses with locking device

They missed several items on my wishlist: A spotmeter and increased metering range, a centered tripod socket, a built-in spirit level, and a more scratch resistant finish. The viewfinder info display could be a big improvement, assuming the designers also have made the display visible under daylight conditions. The current finder diodes disappear far too easily.
