Default updating castle link w/ 3Gx

There is a new update for the Castle Link software update. When downloading the update there is a disclaimer mentioning that you will need to redo your throttle calibration for the endpoints. My question (probably a stupid one) is will I have to setup my 3Gx again? I can't imagine one having anything to do with the other but I was just curious. The update disclaimer is:
Important information for Helicopter Pilots Upgrading to Firmware Version 3.23
The latest firmware included in this release changes the transmitter endpoints used to determine headspeed in governor mode! DO NOT FLY YOUR HELICOPTER UNTIL YOU HAVE PROPERLY CALIBRATED YOUR ENDPOINTS FOR THIS VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE!
This change was made to accommodate many of the new flybar-less systems on the market today. They have limited throttle ranges and were not able to hit the endpoints required for governor mode to arm or reach the third headspeed in governor fixed mode.
Anyone updated to 3.5 yet?
