Tesla started rolling out the next iteration of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta, version 11, on Friday. The new update brings major improvements to FSD since it features a ‘single stack,’ meaning that it “unifies the vision and planning stack on and off-highway and replaces the legacy highway stack, which is over four years old.”

With the FSD beta now featuring a single stack, Tesla has enabled it on highways. FSD beta 11 also enhances the Occupancy Network’s recall for close-by obstacles and precision in severe weather conditions, and that’s just part of the update’s release notes. However, FSD beta 11 is currently only making its way to members of the Early Access Program.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a Saturday tweet that given how big of an update V11 is, “it will take a few weeks” for Tesla to expand the beta. What’s more, it will be “another few weeks” before the automaker can move forward with a wide release of FSD beta 11 across the U.S. and Canada.

The release timeline for V11 isn’t all that surprising. We’ve only partially seen the release notes for the update so far, and those alone indicate it’s a big one.

Musk didn’t directly answer a query about whether or not V11 includes the much-anticipated Actually Smart Summon (ASS) feature. Instead, he simply quipped that “we all want ASS (Actually Smart Summon) ASAP!!”

He said in a follow-up tweet that the feature, which is expected to take Tesla’s Smart Summon to the next level, will “probably” be released next month.

During Tesla’s third-quarter earnings call last month, Musk said that the company is planning a North America-wide expansion for the FSD beta in Q4.
