These minor releases generally have the same release notes as the previous releases in the series. They just contain bug fixes.

See included post below for transcribed release notes for the 2019.40.2.* series:

Ok, this will be our first attempt at creating information-only software threads. Let's see how this goes.
Please see this post for background information about why we're giving this a try.

Discussion threads:
Software Build v10.1 2019.40.2 36f8355b35 (12/04/2019)
Software Build v10.1 2019.40.2.1 38f55d9f (12/06/2019)
Software Build v10.1 2019.40.2.2 655c0f72 (12/17/2019)

Release Notes:

Adjacent Lane Speeds
When your vehicle is moving at a significantly faster speed than vehicles in neighboring lanes, Autopilot now automatically reduces your driving speed. This is helpful in heavy traffic situations or when there is a long line of vehicles merging into a different lane or exiting onto an off-ramp. When your vehicle detects that adjacent lane traffic is significantly slower, the lane is highlighted with arrows and its vehicles are highlighted gray in the driving visualization. This speed adjustment can be temporarily overridden by pressing the accelerator pedal.​
Automatic Wiper Improvements
Automatic wipers have been improved to be more likely to activate when it is lightly raining and respond to changes in rain intensity for more environments. The automatic wipers are now employing the first production deep neural network trained with over 1 million images for the detection of water droplets on a windshield and additional weather cues. If automatic wipers is not performing to your preference, any manual adjustment to wiper speed will be captured to further train and improve the network in future software updates.​
To enable automatic wipers, tap the windshield wiper icon located in the "Cards" area on the touchscreen and select AUTO.​
Automatic Lane Change Improvements
Automatic lane changes have been tuned to make lane changes with more confidence. When the adjacent lane is detected to be open, automatic lane changes will initiate faster and be more assertive.​
Autosteer Stop Sign Warning
Your car may warn you in some cases if it detect that you are about to run a stop sign, in addition to stop lights, while Autosteer is in use. This is not a substitute for an attentive driver and will not stop the car.​
This release contains minor improvements and bug fixes.

Release Note Images

Europe appears to be limited to the Automatic Wiper Improvements and Automatic Lane Change Improvements (reference).

I just deleted and recreated the poll. At the time there were only 16 "No" votes. If you previously voted, please vote again.

I added the option to make the results publicly viewable. That option is not selected by default. For SW threads that are not beta it is nice to see the results. We hide those for beta releases to help provide a little bit of anonimity for those in the beta program.

Note before someone asks - if a poll is created without the "public viewable" results it can not be changed later. It is that way to protect the votes that were cast while they were non-viewable. It can only be deleted and recreated.

Better yet, please use the poll in the official stickied thread here

Just received this Email from Tesla (Was in French, sorry for the bad translation)
Not sure to install it :(

From <france_communications@tesla.com>
Autopilot system Evolution with the software version 2019.40.2.2

Dear Pierre Jean,
Our latest software update includes changes to certain features of the Autopilot system that will impact your Model S. These changes are necessary to comply with European regulations and affect only certain Model S and some Model X, since most Tesla with Autopilot system already incorporates these modifications. Unfortunately, the regulations put in place by the authorities limit the effectiveness of these features.
If we will continue to advocate a reinstatement of all features as soon as possible, we would like to inform you of changes that will be made to the features you have become accustomed to. Here is a summary of the upcoming changes:
The Auto Lane Change will be limited for use only on roads separated by a central reservation with two or more lanes.
Once Auto Lane Change is activated and the turn signal is engaged, your vehicle will wait at least one and a half seconds before starting the lane change and will wait up to five seconds before canceling if the lane change has not been able to start.
The maximum angle of rotation that the steering wheel can apply when the Heading Assist is activated is reduced. This can affect your vehicle's ability to take a curve or stay in its lane, requiring action from you.
Auto exit will require that you be within six meters of your vehicle to operate.
If your hands are not detected on the steering wheel you will receive a reminder after 15 seconds.
You can also find all of these changes directly on your vehicle's touch screen by pressing Tesla's "T" and selecting "Release Notes".
Thank you for your commitment with us,
The Tesla team

Also got the message here in Switzerland. I hoped to be able to avoid the downgrade.
What works is to turn off the Wifi reception of the car. Like that the new version can be avoided for a good moment.

Anybody already installed and tested this update on S or X AP1 in Europe?
Is it as bad as it seems?
based on the email that went out to europeans, the same will likely be coming in future updates - so unless you want to not update from here on out, this likely will be the case for future updates in the foreseeable future, not just this one.

I've installed the update last week (Model S, 2016, HW1). Car performs as it did before the update. 2 major changes:
1. In 90 degree or more corners, it shows a message to be ready to take over because 'Autosteer is limited'. Despite showing the message, so far on my trips it just performed the corners like it did before.
2. The nag about applying pressure to the steering wheel pops-up more often. Since I gold one hand on the steering wheel loosely, I don't feel this is a problem.
