Overheat protection and Alarm change?

Hi all. Knowing that the cabin overheat protection used to be disabled when the alarm was activated since apparently the activation of the cabin overheat protection could trigger the alarm, I have been a good boy and have been turning off the alarm in the summer so that the overheat protection could do its thing and then turned the alarm back on in the winter when it wasn't needed.

I was scrolling through menu options recently and noticed that the settings seem to no longer conflict. There is no longer an explanatory bubble on the alarm warning of the incompatibility between the two modes. I don't remember this being a change but it seems as though it has changed. Has Tesla finally figured out a way for us to have our alarm AND overheat protection activated at the same time?

According to the manual, the optional tilt/intrusion alarm is incompatible with Keep Climate On, Dog Mode, or Camp Mode, but not Cabin Overheat Protection. The standard alarm is compatible with all of them. Which alarm do you have?

I have the standard alarm. Previously in the menu there was a little alert next to the alarm toggle that said the cabin overheat protection would not be functional if the alarm was activated. Previous threads on this forum explained that the overheat protection, if activated, could set off the alarm, thus it was disabled. That "alert" has disappeared on my car sometime over the winter in a firmware update, hence me wondering if there was a change. I used to not care about the alarm that much but since I have a radar detector always in the car I am much more invested in having the alarm active all the time now.
