When will 8.1 be released

Any word on when 8.1 will be released? I just picked up a MS 90D, and while its far better than my 2004 Acura TSX, I'm anticipating the auto pilot features and would like it to simply handle turning on the headlights.
It's a very interesting model to pickup a car that isn't fully enabled for the features purchased. The Mobile App enabled this morning, and it's pretty freakin cool to tell it to raise the temp from 37 to 70 degrees before getting in...

"Soon". To understand that word, you need to look up the Tesla dictionary, where you will find completely different definitions for commonly used words!!!

I suppose being part of the family is "being patient".
Is this the way Tesla makes it feel like a constantly new car? :)

This is the way Tesla keeps you off-guard and thinking "why?" They change the big screen interface, so you now have to tap more times and take your eyes off the road longer. They remove a beautiful and informative faux-analog interface and replace it with what you see out your windshield.

I wonder if Elon moves the furniture in his house every few months...

@barrykmd - Then again with 7.1 you had to take your eyes of the road more often because less of the map was displayed and you may have to move the map position to see a bit more at the top.

I'm just being a contrarian, I really can see both points of view :)

I think the fact we have such a technologically advanced car that can receive continues improvements through software updates is worth being patient for.

the one thing I miss is the contact coming up on the screen before calling. I love clicking on the address and have the navigation start with 1 click.

AP2 with 8.0 doesn't yet support auto headlights. I looked in the setting and it's enabled. The DS said the light s most isn't enabled yet so auto wipers and headlights aren't yet enabled.
Still getting used to all the other features and streaming, so I guess I have no hints to keep me busy.

TT - I've yet to find the extra inch of map useful. If I needed a wider view, I could change it manually with the +/- buttons. Now, it changes itself back to what it thinks is best, but may not be.

The update is out for some features including side collision warning, headlights and wipers. You'll get it....soon. it's in the wild and I think, per firmware tracker, it's being sent ota and some SC locations are loading it for people if they are in service for another reason.
