kb3138378 and kb3140245 optional updates - no info

Hi, what's the deal with optional windows updates kb3138378 and kb3140245? I don't get any information about them on either microsoft or google. That seems suspicious to say the least.

I've seen this before - where the links lead to a page with no info.

It might take a few days for the info to appear at these links:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3138378
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3140245

There is a tiny amount of info here:
Microsoft Update Catalog

Optional updates
I have never installed a single optional update because I don't really know what they are all about although some are obvious. So I ask: just how important are optional updates? Is it generally recommended they be installed? Thanks in advance.

I'm not familiar with doing driver updates. I have 3 optionals from Windows Update. I've read both pros & cons to using Windows Update for drivers but it's been awhile, so what's the current consensus now that I'm running Windows 7? Is it 'good to go' or is it best to go to the product sites?
