Preparing the openHAB 2.2 release

(Kai Kreuzer) #1


I think everyone is longing for a new openHAB release since a while, the next being 2.2.
The good news is that the maintainers have just decided to schedule it for December 18, so in exactly two weeks from now!

To make the release a good one, I would like to ask all binding/add-on developers to do their best to get their add-ons in a stable state - so rather focus on fixes instead of introducing bigger features or refactorings right now.
Furthermore, if you are aware of any breaking changes in an add-on since the 2.1 release, please add some information about the required manual steps to the draft release notes - thanks!

My wish for all our dear users would be to help testing the latest snapshot builds as much as possible and report any major and critical bugs asap. Don’t be too shy to ping me directly if you think there is any critical issue that must not be missed for the release.

Looking forward to a successful new release!

It’s the paid edition :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks Kai and everyone else for all your contributions - looking forward to the 2.2 stable. I switched for the first time to the snapshot builds 2.2 a few weeks back - had a few of the issues with the config files being slightly corrupted but the forum helped sort it very quickly.

I will try the current snapshot and try to document anything that seems to break to help

@Kai Overall, I think things are looking very good. There’s been an impressive amount of progress made since the 2.1 release!

It would be really nice, however, to clean up some of the exceptions that frequently show up in openhab.log when using vscode with LSP enabled.

I suppose this one could be worked around in the short term by raising the log level to ERROR.

Thanks @mhilbush, I agree, we should make sure that we don’t have such annoying log messages. I’ll wait what @sjka might be able to solve in short term - all the rest, which doesn’t really mean any bug, I will try to then change the log level configuration in a way that those messages are suppressed.

Thanks to all contributors for their effort.
Think about what you are requesting. OH does consist of a large number of bindings (amongst other parts…) , which are build by a large number of volunteers. Each new release has an number of new bindings comung with it.
Asking the maintainers to test all of them in depth, would require them to buy the devices that make use of those bindings. Such a requirement in an open source project is impossible, we would loose all volunteers, especially the maintainers!
And this is only one aspect to think about when requesting such testing.

I’m happy with the way new “stable” releases are published!

I think the EPL v1.0 license is pretty clear of what you can expect.

@Kai How do the release cycles of ESH and OH 2.2 relate to each other and what does this mean regarding getting issues fixed for the 2.2 release now that there is a ESH 0.9.0 release?

(Maurits) #17

There is a topic on this, not decisive though…

(Kai Kreuzer) #18

My plan was to use the 0.9.0 ESH release in openHAB 2.2, but as there are already important fixes in post-0.9.0 now, I will create an ESH 0.10.0.b1 for the final openHAB release - so no worries, it isn’t yet too late for fixes in ESH!

It’s nice to still have the possibility to fix things!

But having ESH inside openHAB is like having Rolls Royce engines in your private dreamliner jet! :smile:
