    I've noticed the last 4 updates or so, the descriptions are very vague and short as to what was improved. Regardless the AP2 has been getting steadily better and is very smooth at this point.
    Last week I was timing the 'hold steering wheel nag' and it was right at 63 seconds. Today after update, 2 minutes on the nose. Pretty cool progress.

    Tesla doesn't document most of the changes they make, even when they may have a significant impact on users.

    Several releases ago, they changed the source of the speed limit data base - which has made automatically setting the cruise control speed unsafe in several areas (on of our nearby roads has a speed limit of 40 on a surface street and the new "improved" database thinks the speed limit is 55; on a nearby highway, it thinks the speed limit is 45 - when it's really 65 - which causes the car to quickly slow down in the middle of high speed traffic).

    NVidia does a pretty good job in documenting the changes in their graphics driver releases - indicating what problems were fixed, new features that have been added and listing the major known problems not yet fixed.

    Since the forums do a pretty good job in identify all of the problems in Tesla's software, don't see why Tesla couldn't be more open in their release notes - admit some things are broken - and provide a better description of what's in each release...
