I requested a new device to be added to the ZWave database. BTW Thank you
As I’m waiting for a new buiild, I’m trying to figure out what the process is to load the new jar, I came across this post that has the steps and the location of the zwave nightly build:
The filename of the nightly build appears it is for OH 2.4.0, but I’m running the 2.3.0 Release Build.
Do I have to upgrade my OH from 2.3.0 --> 2.4.0? Or can I load the 2.4.0 nightly build jar right into 2.3.0?
I know a newb question, but I wanted to ask

Others have done this successfully. But others have also reported 500 errors when configuring devices and upgrading to a snapshot fixed them. YMMV.
Also, this may be helpful. If you use it, select the Master branch, not Development.
A number of people have run into trouble performing a manual install of the Zigbee and Z-Wave bindings. A manual install (dropping the jar into addons) is needed in order to use the much improved development Z-Wave binding. Here is a script that will hopefully make it easier to install, upgrade, and uninstall these bindings, and prevent some of the common issues.
Who would benefit from this script:
Anyone wanting to test the latest versions of the Zigbee or Z-Wave bindings

I ran the dev zwave binding on 2.3 without issue - I have now moved to the milestone builds (more up to date than release, but more tested than snapshot. I have found it more stable than my 2.3 install, but that could well be due to other factors.
I promised it since a while, but it has cost us quite some efforts to get the whole process working smoothly: We are now in a position to do almost “one-click” releases of openHAB with our
Jenkins release pipeline - big thanks to @pfink for setting this up!
Just as some background information: To create a distro release, 9 different Github repos need to be built and released individually, with versions being changed in the sources, git tags being created, p2 repos published, etc.

@5iver and @elite!
@5iver I tried out your script and I loaded the zwave binding into my OH!
