2022.8.2 Tesla Software Update and Release Notes

After apparently completely skipping a public build of 2022.8, Tesla has started releasing 2022.8.2, which contains a number of new features.

As mentioned in the NHTSA recall notice, this release disables the Boombox feature in Drive. Transport Canada has not issued the same recall, so Canadian owners will hopefully not see this feature disabled.

If you are in Canada and received 2022.8.2, let us know if you can still use Boombox while driving.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Boombox in Drive has been disabled in Canada.

According to the update tracker Not a Tesla appthere is also an undocumented change to improve the responsiveness of the rear view camera.
