I have uploaded a new beta release for the new openHAB Distro.
This is mainly relevant for people using the download from the main website, while most of you are anyhow referring to the nightly snapshots instead.
Nonetheless, I think it is a major milestone since most openHAB 1.x bindings seem to work smoothly now and overall I had positive feedback from many users regarding the stability.
I still mainly suggest it for experienced openHAB 1 users and with mainly textual configuration; there is still quite some lack of documentation about all the “new” stuff in openHAB 2 (through Paper UI etc.). The good news is that work on openHAB 2 documentation has also been started now and you will find it being heavily worked on and deployed to http://docs.openhab.org/.
@Kai & @digitaldan:
I just found this discussion since I spoke with Kai about oAuth Support and how to help.
Why do we want to create Security concepts / Models by our own. Lets use a framework?
What speaks against Apache Shiro (http://shiro.apache.org/) ?
We may put shiro into a single bundle which than exports a SecurityManager as an OSGI service (other bindings could import and use it).
As I remember from my investigations for Authentication, there is also a Karaf feature for OSGi integration.
Not sure how thin shiro is, but its worth to check it out…
Maybe I am wrong…bus at least an idea…
@kai I presume that through the b3 release, also https://github.com/eclipse/smarthome/issues/1393 is part of b3? if so, then that is quite a showstopper. Cfr the discussion we have at hand, and the fact that the root cause has not been found yet, a suggestion could be to revert to the previous Xtext version for the time being?
At least for me moving to b3 is a no-go, and I can image a lot of people will be in the same position if there is no guarantee that Rules and Scripts can run…
Wanted to play a bit with oh2 beta online version package=demo
Out of the box download, install and start.
After start browser showed error; looks like I had to wait a little bit after everything was downloaded.
Finally Browser UI showed up and could try out demo.
While being a oh1.x user for some years and actually quite satisfied with config over files, i must admit; really very impressive!
Great work folks! Keep it up!
