ESH has not only many contributions from openHAB side.
The initial ESH project is based on openHAB and was splitted from the “old” openHAB on purpose in 2013.

Further information can be found in the proposal:

You seem to have very little knowledge about ESH. Don’t know where you got those stats from, but my rough estimation is that openHAB contributions to ESH (including my own) do not exceed 20% of the work that is done at ESH.

Currently i’m using the 2.2 Snapshot, almost everything works as expected.

Thanks to everybody involved.

What about after the 2.2 release?
Should i switch to the stable branch?
Will there be still bugfixes in the stable branch or is this an exclusive of the snapshot?

People are tracking this thread because it’s supposed to be about the 2.2 release. Your comments here, while interesting, are off topic.

I respectfully ask that you open a separate forum thread for discussing your topic. Thanks!

I know Mark. Will do.

Is there a corresponding ESH 0.9 (or the beta version that will be included with 2.2) draft release notes? One thing that popped up on me recently, that is not really a breaking change but may raise concerns, is the deprecation of DateTimeType.calendar. I was recently surprised when I started seeing a lot of these validation issues in my logs when saving rules that use .calendar…

The method getCalendar() from the type DateTimeType is deprecated

It would be helpful if the ESH documentation would include alternatives for .calendar and .getCalendar.

This is great! Nice work all!

How does one go about switching versions?
Is there a link with steps?

I have some issues with groups needing a OH restart to populate changes. Are u guys aware if this might be addressed in the 2.2 release? Thanks

  • Will there again be upgrade scripts for manual installations? (see OH 2.1 release notes)
  • There should also be a note about breaking changes in logging configuration. (see Karaf Upgrade)
  • It would be also helpful to tell users running OH 2.0 (and may be even 1.x) what to do, e.g. refer to previous release notes or start from scratch.

No, we should add such stuff to the openHAB release notes.

That’s a good point. Yes, it probably should be mentioned - I tried to do so here. Not sure if this has any further impacts; if so, feel free to amend the wiki page.


(Kai Kreuzer) #35

That depends on how you installed it. If it is a manual installation, simply get the latest snapshot from here. If you use APT, check out the docs on how to switch the apt repo that is used.

@waitz_sebastian There was a fix on that about a month ago. If you see critical issues still on the latest snapshots, please let me know, I am not aware of any.


(Kai Kreuzer) #37

We have the upgrade script in place since early this year (runtime/bin/update) - is that what you are looking for? The info still needs to be added to the release notes though.

There should also be a note about breaking changes in logging configuration. (see Karaf Upgrade)

Right, but the note might depend on the outcome of this issue. But yes, definitely something that needs to be mentioned. Feel free to add it to the wiki page yourself!

It would be also helpful to tell users running OH 2.0 (and may be even 1.x) what to do, e.g. refer to previous release notes or start from scratch.

Yes, the two choices you mention are probably the best advice we could give. Can you add something to the wiki on that? Thanks!


(Gadget Guy) #38

Thank you Kai! I am now running v 2.2 and everything is working so far. I will continue to test and share any feedback.

For others who might be unsure on how to switch, I documented the process here:

To late to submit a new binding for 2.2 I guess?


(Lolodomo) #40

Considering the amount of bindings waiting for a review and merge, this would be unfair if you can get a merge in a week :wink:
