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!
