If you were having monitor color shift issues before (I wasn't) you need to delete SPP 5.3.2 and the SPP prefs file before installing SPP 5.4. Good idea to do this in any event. Auto WB seems to be improved, but still not perfect.
I really like Sigmas effort so far, they seem responsive. Although I wish our ultimate desires to have profiles in LR and maybe C1 come into reality. If SPP is the only way to squeeze accurately the Foveon sensor RAWs, and then work with the TIFF files, then I hope someone can address that!
WB improved really with the new firmware!
The new banding suppression is very good as well.
I even have the impression that higher ISO (to 640) has improved, but that needs more testing. Lesser magnet/green blotches??
I did remove the old .prefs file (Mac) when installing 5.4 but still: if i use ProRGB as a working space in SPP (which looks good) and export to LR (via tiff 16bit, ProRGB) i get different colors. If use sRGB as working space and export to ProRGB everything is ok.
Anyhow: Sigma is moving in the right direction! Thanks!
Quentin, i confirm your first tests.

seems the new SPP 5.4 crashes like crazily on my mac. Anyone shares the same experience?
Not really, iMac i7 10.8.2, works good.
I have Mountain Lion and I've encountered no problems.
But curious about another matter. When you save a 'global' setting is it possible to save the NR settings as well? Seems when I do all the individual settings (E.C., Fill, Sharpness, Light, Color etc.) are saved but the NR has to be adjusted every time.
Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
My job is to capture them.
thanks for the responses
i tried to uninstall / reinstall it. Still crashes from time to time. I suspect OS X problem. Mine is running on 10.7.5. Maybe time to upgrade !
peterb, i think you are right. The NR setting cannot be saved!
More updates (firmware and SPP):
