If one already has Calvin's Commentaries, what will be the major benefits of the Calvin Commentary upgrade?

Will the texts be better?  Would you highly recommend upgrading?  Why?

(I realize the Calvin 500 Collection includes much more than the commentaries, but I am speaking only of the commentary upgrade which is available for $24.95.)

All I've read about the upgrade was found on the pre-pub page:

"The previous edition was created many years ago, using the best digital files available at the time. In celebration of John Calvin’s 500th birthday, we’re rebuilding Calvin’s commentaries from the ground up. This collection contains new files for Calvin’s commentaries, plus Calvin: Commentaries, edited by Joseph Haroutunian and published as part of the Library of Christian Classics."

I don't imagine there will be a great deal of difference. Perhaps corrected typos, slightly more up-to-date formatting. What else?
