    After the SpaceX explosion he tweeted that he would postpone it but still finish by end of the weekend... which has come and gone and still... nothing. Am anxious to hear about improvements/ new capabilities! Maybe we can discuss here once he posts...

    At this point, I doubt anyone is surprised to see an off the cuff deadline slip. Still, originally this blog post thing started almost a full week ago, so also no surprise that people are starting to get antsy.

    If you don't want discussion that isn't about the blog post, why start a thread before the blog post exists?

    I expect that many thousands of people are anxious to read the promised blog post. And once it is posted then we will have something concrete to base the discussion on. Until then all we can do is wait. It will happen....

    It's hard not to talk about Elon and his management style. SpaceX explosion has nothing to do with Tesla, there are hundreds of Tesla employees working on v8.0, it seems like Tesla is an one man company.

    still waiting........

    If blog is being delayed by SpaceX developments than perhaps some people are right that he is spread too thin...

    Could be finished but not vetted by the lawyers. It not really a big deal ... except we are all addicted to the sporatic news.

    The release of 8.0 and 8.1 is a big deal and exciting. The release of Elon's blog about the release is just exciting. ;)
