openHAB 2.5 has been released!

All,

Just as planned our new release has arrived: It is my pleasure to announce that openHAB 2.5 has been published!
Please find the long long list of changes in the official release notes.
We have also published a blog post, which also includes a summary of the updates that happened on other components such as the apps and skills in the past weeks.

Many thanks to everybody who contributed to this release and thus made it possible!

The development version has now been switched to 3.0.0-SNAPSHOT now and bigger changes are afoot. I will provide a couple of further infos on how to proceed with 2.x vs. 3.x by the end of the year, so watch for further announcements.

Kind regards,
Kai

Yes Bruce, we seem to be moving in similar circles tonight. :slight_smile:
I can’t downgrade my broken build because of this same error.
I was on the “testing” build, but I have reverted to “stable”, but I cannot proceed just now.

I have the same error about it not being signed. Key problem?

I have re-indexed the apt metadata. Could you check again, please?

You might be interesting in this little factoid I felt compelled to update the openhab.org home page with: as of 2.5, openHAB officially supports more than 2000 thing types! :partying_face:
Those are the ones supported by the 2.x addons only, since 1.x addons don’t define thing types!

Did you include Z-Wave in that, or is Z-Wave half of that, since there are ~1000 devices in the device db?
