Due to a bug with the highlights in the previous Camera Update 6.9.3, Blackmagic Design had to temporarily pull the update. Now, Blackmagic Design has released a remedial Camera 6.9.4 Update with a fix. The firmware contains the same new features for the original URSA Mini Pro 4.6K as the 6.9.3 update. 

In case you missed what those are here is what you get from Blackmagic Design.
