Updated my 4500 from version 1.1 to version 1.2. Step by step instructions are provided with the download.
I don't see any difference anywhere except that the version number now shows 1.2, but the update procedure itself was no problem.

Coolpix 4500 firmware update also available at Nikon USA

If you have a card reader you can update your firmware via a CF card, it's quick and painless.

1. Create folder called "firmware" off of the root
2. Copy the firmware.bin (from the ZIP file you download) to
the new firmware folder on your CF card.
3. Make sure you have fresh batteries in camera and set your
Play mode timeout to 5 minutes.
4. Place CF card in camera, turn camera on.
5. Press the Quick Review button to go into Play mode
6. Camera should say you have firmware v1.1 and ask if you
want to upgrade to version 1.2 -- answer yes
7. Don't turn camera off until you see the "Complete" message
8. Turn camera off
9. Turn camera on while holding down the MENU button
10. It should confirm that the camera has firmware 1.2 in it now.

You're done !
