With the EOS 80D soon to be hitting doorsteps across the country, we expected that a new version of Digital Photo Professional and EOS Utility would be released with added support for the new DSLR. Unsurprisingly, we were right.
What was surprising, though, is that the new version of DPP and EOS Utility haven't shown up as individual download links across the DSLR lineup on Canon USA' website. Instead, the updated programs are only available by downloading the EOS Digital Solution Disk Software
on the EOS 80D Support Page
Consequently, there's no indication of what changes were made to each individual program contained within the software package download. As such, we have no idea what changes have been implemented in the new versions of the software besides the most obvious guess (that support for the EOS 80D has been added), but it's likely that support for the
1D X Mark II
and Rebel T6 have also been added (the EOS Software Disk is available for download on the T6 page but no software is available for download on the 1D X Mark II page). Update:
From our understanding, this version of DPP does not support the 1D X Mark II.
Note that DPP's new version number indicates that it's probably more than a minor upgrade; the previous version released (with the Rebel T6s) was 4.3.31.
The EOS Digital Solution Disk Software for the 80D contains:

Although the EOS 7D RAW files are indeed supported by DPP 4.4.0, the original 7D's serial number will not allow you to download the software. [thanks Bruce] * A DPP v4 compatible DSLR serial number is required to download the software. Supported models include:
