I am interested in trying the Milestone 6 build, but it doesnt appear in the download screen on the website yet?

@bjovas try sudo apt-get update/upgrade.
In the ssh console.
Thank you @Kai for all of your hard work.
Upgraded to M6 works great after sudo reboot now.
Openhab2 Strong :muscle:

You are giving a lot of information to help you :sunglasses:

See the “Testing Release” section (which contain the Milestones) in:

You’re right, I had missed to update the website. Should be there now as well!

Don’t thank me, thank all the immensely active maintainers and contributors! I am merely packaging and building the stuff :sunglasses: .


Thanks to all contributors :slight_smile:


@Kai I couldn’t agree more, I have always acknowledged all of the contributors to OH. (large and small).
I apologize for not doing that in my last comment.
I mentioned you in relation to the releases.
I’m sure that a lot more work goes into what you do then a few words you presented in your response to my comment.
I am so very grateful for OH!
Thank you to EVERYONE for all of your help.

RC 1 Critical Issue Thread

@Brinkmann If you think there’s a regression, please directly enter an issue at or post it on OpenHAB 2.5 RC 1 Critical Issues.

A milestone in apt is always considered newer than a snapshot regardless of their dates so moving from testing to snapshot is the only case where you would need to do the above to upgrade. Otherwise use sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade to get the latest version.

Are you sure, I had S1745 installed and it didnt upgrade to 2.5.0 m5 / m6 or rc1. I had to do a sudo apt-get install openhab=2.5.0~m6-1

And apt stated (in dutch) that it is downgrading S1745 to m6…

Ophalen:1 testing/main amd64 openhab2 all 2.5.0~M6-1 [82,6 MB]
82,6 MB opgehaald in 8s (10,2 MB/s)
dpkg: waarschuwing: openhab2 wordt **gedegradeerd van 2.5.0~S1745-1 naar 2.5.0~M6-1**
(Database wordt ingelezen ... 46955 bestanden en mappen momenteel geïnstalleerd.)
Uitpakken van .../openhab2_2.5.0~M6-1_all.deb wordt voorbereid...

When that post was made, milestones were always regarded as newer than snapshots. We changed the snapshot naming scheme so this is no longer their case as you have found out. FTR apt and yum see that:

  • Releases are always newer than nightly or milestone builds for that version. (i.e.2.5.0 is newer than 2.5.0~*)
  • All snapshots are newer than milestones (i.e. 2.5.0~S* is newer than 2.5.0~M*.

Same problem for me, seems to be a dependency issue.
Here is a dirty workaround to update the pom-file, upgraded to 2.10.4 of the org.asynchttpclient and rebuilt the plugin.
