They're in the OP, but to be honest I don't think they're updated at all, they read 13.12 but I'm pretty sure they are the same ones as in the 13.11 Beta9.5 release notes, but I would have to double check that.

So the real question is... Are these MORE recent with more updates than 13.11 Beta v9.5 or are these OLDER than 13.11 Beta v9.5 and just took forever to get through the WHQL process?

They are newer than 13.11 Beta 9.5, both in internal version numbers and build date.
