Has Boeing admitted that the software wasn't up to snuff for that system?

The software wasn't the issue. They didn't train the crews on how to deal with MCAS reacting to differential data.

Doesn't the severe changes made imply it is over reacting? I can see your point though. Get it right at first and it's OK.

They developed MCAS because the larger engines changed the stall characteristics of the aircraft. Boeing is making changes ro the software to handle differences between the AoA sensors, which is what happened here. If the crew had flown the damn plane, it wouldn't have gone down. That was proven on the previous flight.

There's an interesting debate going on about the latest released on the investigation. Investigators said that the AoA sensor was replaced two days prior, and was miscalibrated after installation. Folks on Pprune are saying the FDR shows noise on the sensor channel, that seems to indicate a bad circuit or possibly a computer that the sensor went through. There was another Max about a week or two after 610 that lost the left side computer too.

Multiple sources are reporting that the CVR has been recovered.

According to reports the crew discussed airspeed, and altitude, but never mentioned elevator trim. The captain turned over control of the aircraft to the first officer and was looking for the correct procedure at impact.

The crew the night before figured out what was happening, and corrected for it, but that information was never passed on.
