A little fun poll. Do you like to be spoiled in advance about upcoming software updates? Do you read leaked release notes, articles, etc to know about features before you get them. Or, do you try to remain free of spoilers? Do you avoid any info so that you can be surprised when you get an update?

Personally, I find it hard to not to get spoiled. Early Access info seems to leak pretty easily all over the internet. It's hard not to see it. But I admit I like reading about upcoming features because it creates more excitement and anticipation for getting an update.

Voted no. I don't mind a surprise and don't really care about game additions/improvements. Yes software updates offer improvements but no matter what version the car is on, it will still drive when it needs to. ;)

How about Tesla provide details release notes so we can decide if this update will break/fix things or worth updating?
