Latest Firmware Release Notes

Seems like whenever a new firmware update is released I am searching to find the latest release notes. Usually a laborious task searching through posts based on threads containing the firmware update version.
Starting this thread that I’m just calling “Latest Firmware Release Notes”.
Hoping that people will just post new release notes here.

I will start by posting 2020.20.5. We received this update on both our Model S and our Model 3. Release notes are the same so no need to post both screenshots.

Very cool!
Thanks.
My hope for this thread was that Watching it with email notifications would magically bring me the firmware notes as soon as they were posted. How soon does Telescope get updated when a new version comes out?
Did a bit more examination of the site. (Telascope) Created a Login. Discovered it is similar to TeslaFi in that they are asking for my Tesla Login Credentials or a Token. I have yet to provide these to any sites or apps. (Paranoia).
That said...They provide firmware update notes in a most elegant way (text versus a screenshot) Some thing I have long wished Tesla would do on my account on Tesla’s website. Also the info icons for each feature telling you which hardware they apply to very well done.
A great resource… Thanks again

While not as documented, the release notes also support every language that Tesla provides release notes for to allow for better inclusiveness.

Adding a vehicle isn't necessary and simply setting your language on the service will automatically display the release notes in that language. But! Even an account isn't necessary; you can override the language by appending ?locale=<two digit language code> to the end of any software update url. For example, here is Spanish and here is Japanese!

Cheers.

Looks like I got my answer. I received 2020.20.12 on both my cars. First to post it on https://ev-fw.com/reports.php?ver=10.2
It’s now listed on TeslaFi as well. No mention on Teslascope yet.

We typically always receive updates prior to TeslaFi based on their infrastructure. We actually did detect it prior to their platform.

Just by a small margin though typically.

I believe the issue I was experiencing is from your web app not seemIng to refresh and the elimination of the normal manual refreshing in Safari in iOS.
I added TeslaScope to a home screen button.
I was finally able to see 2020.20.12 by completely exiting & restarting safari. Perhaps a refresh button would be helpful.

Great idea and will get that added sometime soon. Full real-time updating of most components on the service is planned for later this year to provide much more of a traditional mobile app experience (prior to apps being released).

Auto-updating is something that most services lack (including both services), but super important for ensuring what you see is always up to date.
