openHAB 2.3 has been released!


(Kai Kreuzer) #1

All,

It is my pleasure to announce that openHAB 2.3 is now available!
You can find all changes in the official release notes and you should not miss the blog post about it on our new website.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to making this release possible!

The development version has already switched to 2.4.0-SNAPSHOT now, where all new development will take place. This time, we really plan to do regular milestone releases, so you might want to use the testing repository for the latest & greatest, but without running the risk to catch too many broken builds on the way.

Kind regards,
Kai

But when I try to upgrade my openhabian snapshot 2.3.0 to stable 2.3.0, I only get the following screen:

any ideas?


(Ben Clark) #3

I believe this is just a hard coded text that hasn’t been updated yet.

Selecting the option will always install the latest version available, not just 2.2.0.

Either way, openHABian can also follow the same update procedure as APT based installations


(Ralph Borchers) #4

There is another breaking change between 2.2 and 2.3 regarding jython scripting. If the jython rules use persistence extensions and DateTime.now() the script needs to

import org.joda.time.DateTime as DateTime

to work correctly on the recent 2.2 snapshots and 2.3 as well.


(Joachim Boeddeker) #5

Sorry. Bad testing on my side. :flushed:


(Stefan) #6

it is fixed: now their is only openhab stable without any version number.


(Kees Van Gelder) #7

I am sure a lot of hard work went into it.
I can only speak for myself though that I regret the update as it seemed to have broken a lot of things, if not everything. None of my items (e.g. the weatheritems (http call with JSONPATH transform)) are not recognised anymore, seeing only item names and no longer the labels, icons or values

.

My logs are full of error messages of items that cant be found:

and on ip:8080, I see no user interfaces anymore, just grafana, find and help
I am sure I can get it fixed somehow but for now I think I will just put my old files back

Additional problem:


(Scott Rushworth) #9

This is possibly due to an ESH change that essentially removed indefinite paths from the JSONPATH transform. Where I need to use indefinite paths, I am now using jq. This appears to be a breaking change that was not documented in the release notes.

Oddly, there also doesn’t look to be any reference to ‘Member of’ as a rule trigger.


(Kees Van Gelder) #10

Thanks, but that is not the only problem. 99% of my items cant be found, neither can my UI’s.
Everything is just completely broken


(Nathan Stratton) #11

When can we expect to see the RPMs for RedHat distros? They don’t show up yet in openHAB-Stable repo.


(Nathan Stratton) #12

Sorry my bad, they are there, you just have to do a yum downgrade openhab2 to go from unstable snapshot to stable release.


(Sergi Suarez) #13

Hi all.

New OpenHAB version now is time to upgrade it but I have one question regarding the old spapshot ZWave binding. I mean old becuase is one of working on OpenHAB 2.2 but still is snapshot. What is the better way to update OpenHAB in this situation?

a) Uninstall the snapshot zwave binding then update openHAB and then install zwave from PaperUI (I don’t need security)

b) update openHAB and then cross fingers the update process updates zwave binding too.

Thanks for your help


(Angelos) #14

Open up a new thread with some info (like your items and logs) and for sure we can identify the root cause :slight_smile:


(Kees Van Gelder) #15

ok :slight_smile:


(Angelos) #16

I would do this.
Are you currently running the refactored Z-Wave Binding with Security features? (link)
If yes: remember that you need to delete your Z-Wave Things from PaperUI first before uninstalling the Binding.


(Sergi Suarez) #17

Yes I’m using the refactored binding.
So work for the weekend as probably I will need to check my items, rules etc…

Thanks a lot for your answer


(Scott Rushworth) #18

Then you’ll need to just leave the jar in addons. The development zwave binding is not in the 2.3 release.


(Angelos) #19

I think that he wants to fall back to the “standard” Z-Wave Binding for now (he mentioned that he doesn’t need Sec)

It is easier to just to a simple upgrade of OH to 2.3 and stay with the development/refactored Z-Wave Binding.
Chris will merge the dev version most likely in the 2.4 Stable :slight_smile:


(rbausdorf) #20

First thx for the new version. :grinning:
On my system the upgrade process was technically flawless.
But it seems I have lost old rrdj4 data - or is this due to the updated chart settings ?

The relnotes do mention an needed manual action regarding the Weatherundergound binding. I did not change an of my items from Number to Number:Temperature - and it still works. So is this change really needed or is it optional ?
