Tesla’s next version of Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta looks like it will be released on Sunday, according to the latest update from CEO Elon Musk.
Musk tweeted on Saturday afternoon that the team is working through the weekend to ensure a Sunday release of 10.12, although he noted that will first be to a limited set of testers, without explaining who will be selected.
If the limited group of testers don’t find any significant bugs, 10.12.1 will be released to the rest of the FSD Beta testers, presumably including those in Canada. Musk did not provide a timeline for when 10.12.1 might be released, but if everything goes as planned a mid-week release would make sense based on the cadence of previous releases.
Along with the update, Musk also said the next iteration, 10.12.2, will “probably” be when they are confident enough in the software to expand the beta testing program to owners with a Safety Score of 95 or above.
Currently only those with a Safety Score of 98 or above are included in the program, although there are still many owners who have held even a perfect 100 Safety Score for several months without being submitted into the program.
Musk has previously promised some significant improvements in the upcoming release, and a lengthy set of release notes to go along with it.
This will be the first update in over one month since Tesla released version 10.11.2 in early April.
Team is working the weekend to get 10.12 in limited release tomorrow. Then we evaluate, do a point update, and broaden the release. 10.12.2 is probably where we can expand to a safety score of 95+.
