    Just a spotted in the wild on TeslaFi. Anyone here have it yet?

    Perhaps an early peek at Version 9?

    Thanks! Until I hear otherwise, I'll just assume this means the phone key is now perfected.

    I haven’t had any problems with it on version 2018.26.3 to be honest.

    Minor bug fixes warrant a 28???? Why not 26.4?

    I still have consistent phone as key issues with 26.3. I have no hope for a fix any time soon. Especially when Tesla Service keeps telling me.. oh, it will be in the next update... that was 3 updates ago.

    The key is to understand that minor bug fixes could mean anything. For example 2018.10.4 which revolutionised AP performance was a minor bug fix. Out of the blue.

    Having said that the middle number signifies the week number of a build presumably off some form of agile software process.

    Because Tesla doesn't have a time machine yet?
    In all seriousness, I am pretty sure that the 28 means 28th week of the year, so you would only see 2018.26.4 if it was released 4 times that week, but in this case it was developed 2 weeks later.

    Well it makes more sense when one knows what the naming convention is.

    Thanks for the time machine comment.

    These releases are supposedly keyed to the week of the year (28 = July 9 2018), meaning they’re a little behind.

    Interesting.

    You’d think the SW version would remain 26.X for “minor improvements and bug fixes”.

    Can’t wait for Version 9 to start appearing in the wild. I hope I get to start testing it early this time. I only got 26.3 (from 21.9) last week!

    I am interested to see if now having WiFi will help firmware updates come faster or at least more successfully.

    From what I've read, Tesla versions their software updates by the date they're released.

    For example, 2018.28.1

    2018 would be the year released. 28 would be the week of the year it was released in. 1 would be an incremental number in case of multiple releases that week. I could be wrong, though.

    Right but we are in Week 32. In the past for about 1 year until recently it was pretty regular. They would release during the ODD Week for the previous EVEN week. So we should at least be getting 2018.30. Looks like things are a bit slow while finishing v9.

    its the week the software build was built, not released. After build we can assume internal beta and such things before public availability.

    Not necessarily. I’m sure these builds go through some internal testing before they start the initial rollout to the fleet. This build could have been in testing for a week or more before it hit a Model 3 in the wild.

    I’m curious if anyone has noticed any tweaks or improvements with this version so far. Hopefully now that my Model 3 actually has WiFi access I’ll get new versions a little bit quicker.

    well so far since i got the 28.1 update earlier i can say its been more consistent because i had the same issue with the 26 update. I was about 50% success. So far on 28.1 the 5 times i have went to my car today it unlocked every time, but you know mileage and depending on phone type this may very. Im running iPhone X on iOS 12 beta 6.
