No, file a GitHub issue in core and make it as specific as possible (one for each request). If someone else has to design the specifics it’s very unlikely it will ever be picked up, simple because a lack off time, unless a developer has the same request. So for your suggestions also propose how that would look like in actual configuration. This would greatly increase the change that it will be implemented or at least have a better discussion.
I have no indication anybody involved in core development is even considering to remove text file configuration.
End of support for 1.x bindings. Of this I was afraid when I read about 3.x
The reason why I started using Openhab was because of the Nikobus 1.x binding. If this doesn’t work anymore in 3.x then I will never use it and stay on 2.x. Pitty.
And as this binding is a very niche one, I am afraid nobody will migrate it to 2.x 3.x . Doubt I am knowledge enough to do it myself. Will take a look though.
Thx very much Guys Up till recently I was still running 2.1. No reason for me to update as it worked perfectly. After updating the repository I could update to 2.5. Now running the latest Nikobus binding.
That will not happen as I need serial to run over 30 DIY devices running a custom protocol on serial. See the thread below. BTW I don’t believe other home automation packages have serial port support, Openhab is the only one as it has been around the longest.
Is the 2.5.1 stable version out for updating with openhabian.config right now?
If I do a “sudo apt-get upgrade -s” on a openhabian installation the 2.5.1 version isn’t found…
sudo apt-get upgrade -s
