Still glossing over

Some pilots have alleged that original training courses on the 737 Max glossed over what MCAS was and how it worked.

Are the journalists unaware of the details or is Boeing still glossing over?

What kind of patch are they releasing? Making the system easier to disable, more redundant and tolerant to faulty sensors, both, or something else?

How will the additional pilot training work? I guess they can't release new manuals and say that from the next day the planes can fly, pilots will need some time for the extra training. Moreover, if the system is shut down the pilots will have to learn to fly a plane that suddenly has a different balance, will they be able to try it in the simulator?
