openHAB 4.2 - our traditional summer release is here!

Dear community,

I am thrilled to announce the availability of our latest traditional summer release: openHAB 4.2!
Already one year has passed since our huge openHAB 4.0 release, and we are proud to have been able to keep the high development pace of our previous releases.

openHAB 4.2 is packed with some major, exciting new features and countless improvements and bug fixes.
Be it the One more thing moment for mobile notifications, or the enhanced persistence extensions - make sure to check out our joint release blog post to learn about the highlights of this release.

If you are interested in every-bit of the changes, please read our official release notes on GitHub - they will help you with the upgrade process and guide you through the breaking changes.

If you have any issues or questions, please use this topic for discussion.

I’d like to thank all my maintainer colleagues, our contributors and users for their work on and dedication for openHAB - without you, this release would not have been possible!

Best regards,
