0.62: MyChevy, Iota and Venstar Thermostat


Second release of the year and it’s buzzing on GitHub. This release we had 70 people contribute code. We’ve also managed to finally get our PR count below a 100 open PRs again. A lot of cool stuff still waiting to make it to a future Home Assistant release.

I want to give a shout out to @martinhjelmare and @frenck. Martin is doing an amazing job at code reviews and Franck has been kicking ass with Hass.io add-ons and keeping track of our documentation PRs. Thanks for this amazing work!


With this new integration by @sdague you are able to keep an eye on your Chevy Bolt EV. Keep track if your car is plugged in, the battery stats and the range it is currently capable of driving. Hip!
