    Is there an archive of release notes for previous software updates? I want to get an idea of what sort of improvements Tesla has made over time with their over the air updates.

    Does anyone know when the Hold feature was enabled? That's when you depress the brake with extra force at a complete stop so the car will hold itself. I couldn't find it in the release notes.

    you are right, just little extra push on the brake and you will see the ((H)) icon on the dash. no need to enable it anywhere.

    Didn't know about this Hold feature. So once the Hold is on, you don't need to keep pressing on the brake anymore? As in, the car won't creep forward at a complete stop (assuming Creep Mode is on)?

    Right, it keeps the car in place until you hit the gas at which point you will drive away. MB has this feature and I love it. Glad to see Tesla incorporate it.

    In case it isn't clear, this page was / is compiled by TMC members, and isn't an official Tesla Motors document.

    Haven't seen them yet. In fact the first time I've seen a PDF of release notes was for 7.1...I hope that's a new practice they intend to continue.
