Good choice, just remember what @Bruce_Osborne mentioned about removing the restdocs addon before upgrading. I would also recommend removing any other binding that is in the release notes then reinstall after the upgrade.
Doing that will save you some time and trouble.
Here’s a list of bindings that have changes:
Due to changes in the Azure API, this add-on is no longer working and has been removed.
Sen.se Persistence Service
The Sen.se service has been discontinued, therefore there is no longer any use of this openHAB persistence service. It has thus be removed from the distribution.
Breaking Changes in Add-ons
The item type of ‘rain’ and ‘snow’ channels have been changed to ‘Number:Speed’.
Channel ‘receivingState’ has been removed, because this was a string containing many information. For this, there are three new channels: ‘rssi’, ‘repeatCount’ and ‘lastReceived’.
Some tags have been renamed. Old names will not be supported in future versions. Please check documentation.
The binding parameter ‘localIP’ has been removed. The binding now uses system defaults for network communication. The thing type parameter ‘deviceId’ is no longer a parameter, but a property. Parameters ‘host’ and ‘key’ have been added.
Homie channel names may have changed if special characters are used for MQTT topic names.
