sparse bundles and the new 2.6.2(87) update

Just noticed in the latest upgrade it claims support for Sparse Bundle images.

What does this really mean? I've been using SmartBundles for some time now as a way to secure the content of sensitive information. I'm able to mount the external LaCie drive and drag the bundles back to the desktop and mount them.

As long as I know the password or am logged into an account where the password is stored in the keychain, it seems to work fine.

So, what wasn't working before?

Is there any reason for me to suspect that some existing Sparse Bundles residing on the external backup drive are corrupt? If so, do I need to force a complete backup vs. an update?

Thanks,

Randall
