I can't remember seeing so many people crowded up on the latest software release on Teslafi.
Almost as if they are getting everybody ready for a single upgrade.
I speculate that on earnings day (January 29) they will announce a fairly major software update.
Maybe feature-complete FSD? o_O

That may be, but an alternative explanation is simply that it's been so long since the last major update (not sure if 40.50 should be considered a major release after 40.2 or not) that everyone is simply up to date.

Sure, an update is overdue. Whether it's a major update or not I don't know. I don't see feature complete FSD though. I'm expecting incremental advances there.

I agree, it has been very quiet on the update front, I know we are not getting any new platform announcements, but I think we are going to get some updates on the following:
Model Y - Early Launch confirmation.
Model S/X - Updates - Plaid
Software Updates - New UI?
Roadster updates.

I was just thinking earlier we almost need a poll and one of those threads. It is way quiet. Something big this way comes!! Or at least we hope.

A note for at @Johnston, I think it is pretty safe to say there isn't a beta release out right now. The beta testers for Tesla are not good at not sharing.

I think the lack of updates in January is just a lag effect of coders taking time off during the holidays. I’m sure there’s something coming soon, but I don’t necessarily see it being anything huge.

I'm guessing getting ready for first production Model Y shipments is using all of the software QA resources right now. At least I hope that's what's going on. A clean release for the Y would go a long way to quieting down a lot of the potshots at S/W quality from Tesla.

FSD will be rolled out to HW3 - the time frame is Q1-Q2 with a hardcore goal is Q1!!! Some folks think it will be right around Jan 29 Q4 call. Look to my old Smart Summon and acceleration boost Posts for accuracy!

While model 3’s are mostly up to date with one software version, that is not at all the case with the model S/X’s. Attaching that latest info from Teslafi. I have been hoping the software engineers are busy on solving the problems that prevent them from moving the S/X crowd forward.
