Abstract
We discuss the reduction of errors in the calculation of vector the form factor for semileptonic kaon decays with HISQ fermions on the N_f=2+1+1 MILC configurations from increased statistics on some key ensembles, new data on ensembles with lattice spacings down to 0.042fm and the study of finite-volume effects within staggered ChPT. We also study the implications for the unitarity of the CKM matrix in the first row and for current tensions with leptonic determinations of |V_{us}|.
