Openhab2, RFXCOM and OWL electricity meter

I have my RFXtrx433E working ok with Openhab 2.1, and it is successfully receiving and processing my Visionic security events properly. However, it refuses to understand the electricity reporting coming from my Owl unit, steadfastly insisting that it is “Message not supported”.
Who do I have to beg to to get the Electricity meter decoding added to the jar?

Binding support currently ELEC2, ELEC3 and ELEC4 messages.

Could you change rfxcom logging level to trace and paste log here?

Hi, thanks for the reply
This is the sort of stuff I am seeing…

Those are ELEC1 messages, which are not yet supported. Actually, there have been a PR available for a while, but have not yet committed to main repo.

Do we have a release date?

It still requires a final touch (from @netjordan) so even if we do a new release it will not yet be included.

I added a PR to replace the old one, I’ll upload a jar as well please test!

Great, where can I get the JAR from please

I found the 2.3 jar and got it going on my 2.2 system. Instant power from the sensor is now seen, parsed and displayed correctly. Many thanks
