As promised in my last post in August, we have delivered openHAB 2.5.9 today on time! I mentioned it being the last “big” patch release and yeah - this one is REALLY big! Check out the release notes at https://github.com/openhab/openhab-distro/releases/tag/2.5.9: it includes no less than 26 new bindings!
This has been a massive review effort the past weeks and I want to thank everyone involved in this, both contributors and maintainers - you rock!
To be honest, 2.5.9 clearly does not deserve being called a “patch release”, so I am happy that we are at the end of that phase. As previously mentioned, we will continue to ship 2.5.10, etc., but those will really only be about bug fixes. All feature development will from now on move to 3.x - I’ll soon share more details, so make sure to check the announcements category from time to time!
If you have specific questions on the 2.5.9 release, please use this topic for any further discussion.
