Hands on with Nintendo Labo Making Cardboard Fun Again

This is according to Twitter user Wario64 who noted that Nintendo Switch Firmware update 5.0.0 was mentioned following the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app update.

We're working hard to ensure the Nintendo Switch version of GameMaker Studio 2 retains the already excellent functionality of the engine, and we are committed to supporting developers and studios who are keen to make the jump to Nintendo's record-breaking console. Digital software purchases made from a PC or smart device will henceforth start downloading sooner than with the previous system.

To keep the Parental Controls PIN private, the default method for PIN entry has been changed to entering using the Control Stick and buttons instead of the on-screen number pad.

The free app lets parents easily monitor how much their child plays on Nintendo Switch, choose how long they can play for each day, and set restrictions to limit what they can access.

Sean Smith Will Plead Guilty to Assault Charge; Cut by Raiders
He said he was only on the field in certain packages early in the season and could not get into the flow of a game as a result. Smith was set to make $8.25 million in base salary in 2018, and his release comes with no dead money against Oakland's cap.

Other changes to Parental Controls have been implemented as well.

Version 5.0.0 is automatically downloaded by consoles connected to the internet, so users do not need to worry about looking for the update.

Once the download is complete, you'll be asked if you'd like to install the update.

This time, it appears to be either a leak or an unintentional mistake by Nintendo where they accidentally listed a different firmware update in the patch notes. Before installing, they are advised to save any game progress.
