0.58: More translations, faster frontend, system log


The Hass.io release of 0.58 will be delayed by a couple of days because Pascal is moving this weekend.

Translation update

Translations are up and running in full speed. Shortly after the last release we got our translation pipeline figured out. @armills and @c727 are doing an amazing job managing this project. We’ve doubled the number of supported languages to 42 and the amount of keys to translate went from 8 to 130. Our translators are on top of their game and 79% is already translated.

Talking about our translators, we now have 445 people with an account to help with translations. Not bad for 3 weeks!

And because more translations is more better, @robbiet480 has added the iOS app to Lokalise, our translation management platform. The iOS app is currently supported in 7 different languages.

Frontend improvements continue

Thanks to @Andrey-git we now are able to serve the frontend in modern JavaScript. Leveraging modern JavaScript makes the frontend faster to load and run. For now it’s opt-in but we’re looking into making it opt-out in the future. The ES5 version of the frontend will remain available for older devices.

To try it once, add ?latest to your Home Assistant bookmark. To make it the default on your installation, update your config to look like this:

  javascript_version: latest
For Custom UI users: your custom UI will need to be updated before it can work with the new version of the frontend.

System log enhanced

Our about screen that shows the error logs has gained a nice upgrade by @postlund. Now the 50 latest exceptions will be displayed with the option to get more information.
