Fast decay makes the exponential decay/release stages steeper while still taking the same amount of overall time... it's easiest to hear what this is like if you are using a looping envelope and switching Fast Decay on and off.

I've noticed they don't. It would be convenient if they did as a sort of initialized patch. I'm not sure if I completely understand the idea of the activate panel vs. a compare button.
Activate Panel keeps "its own" set of hidden / under-the-hood settings, which persist. The reason for this is so that you can switch from Active Panel to any preset and then back, such that Active Panel sounds the same both times. So, in Active Panel mode, all the knobs are live / all panel parameters match the knob positions, and all hidden / non panel parameters stay however you set them while in Active Panel mode. These settings are saved for next time, any time you exit Active Panel. Hope that makes sense.

Version 1.4.0. Great! (any release notes, or no need?)
Will there be an updated manual in the future, featuring all the new improvements? (loved the addition of the Panic feature in 1.3.9)
There is a list of changes in the firmware update READ ME file...

...a manual addendum is, I think, in the works.
