openHAB 2.5.x Patch Releases

It appears it was available for installation before the announcement, this confused me a bit :slight_smile:
But good to see this. Great work!

That is what should be done but was not done previously. Be sure a new version is actually available before announcing. Making it available is not an instantaneous process.

There seems to be an issue with the Ubuntu repository

That is the wrong repo for the Stable release just announced.

Still an issue

Had the same issue and I fixed it by using the following repository for stable:
deb https://dl.bintray.com/openhab/apt-repo2 stable main

According to our official documentation the official stable repo is in bintray.

Corrected, Thank you
Took me a few times looking at my apt source to see what I was doing wrong,

A quick message to let you know that the Freebox binding is no more working in distribution 2.5.5, the authentication to the server is systematically failing.
I already proposed a fix, I hope that it will be merged quickly.

something has changed again and previous logging from jsr233 rules has stopped working. I don’t see any changes in the changes list that could impact this. It is working correctly with 2.5.3 and 2.5.4 releases.

Someone else reported something similar and it was resolved by touching the org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg file…

That sounds more like a workaround than a resolution.

have not yet tried this, but curious how this will solve the issue if the openhab process is started from 0?

That’s because it is a workaround. I’ve seen this happen very rarely since before 2.5M2, but I update files, clear cache, and restart OH a LOT more often than the average user. The actual issue has not been identified, but the symptom is that logging stops for some loggers. The only updates in this release were to add-ons… there were no updates to scripted automation, the update script, or logging. There may be something glitchy with the update process, but it is not specific to this release. It’s something to keep an eye on, but discussion about it does not belong in this topic.

I’m not sure what you mean by this, but if you open a new topic, I’ll be happy to discuss there.

Yes, this is another topic that should be addressed. For example, 2.5.4 release (https://github.com/openhab/openhab-distro/releases/tag/2.5.4) did not list any changes to the Xiaomi Mi binding, however, there were changes (a bug to be precise) that made the binding unusable for 2 and more gateways. That means the release notes can not be taken as the main source of truth.

hmm, could it be such errors are not written to openhab.log? I had a dozend of them, but grep now finds nothing. The error indicated that.getEvent() and .getChannel() are not methods of the receivedEvent base class.

OH version is 2.5.0 Release Build

just doing an apt-get upgrade to upgrade to the latest released OH version and bundles

I now see 2 config files for the Ops4J PAX logging:

/var/lib/openhab2/etc/org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg
and
/var/lib/openhab2/config/org/ops4j/pax/logging.config

Maybe they interfere?

I managed to upgrade to OH 2.5.5 but now I get again the same error when running apt update:

Maybe it’s an intermittent problem.?

There are no testing releases. Just stable & unstable.

Does that mean that the documentation at https://www.openhab.org/docs/installation/linux.html ( search for testing ) is not up to date / outdated ? The documentation distinguishes between stable, testing and beta releases aka unstable aka snapshots
