  • Release-Notes

0.71 has arrived. My favorite feature in this release is the conversion of the Nest component from cloud poll to cloud push. Sure, it’s still through the cloud but changes are now made available in Home Assistant as soon as they happen. Thanks @awarecan!

We’ve continued the frontend tweaks after the major overhaul in the last release. We’ve had some issues with the Hass.io panel on both Firefox and Safari. They have been addressed and all browsers should hopefully work again.

On the frontend side, custom panels have gotten some new tricks, including support for building panels using React. So if you’re a developer, check it out. And thanks to @c727 a lot more strings can now be translated. More info on how to help with translating the frontend can be found here.

HomeKit support also keeps growing. This release includes support for media players, automations and outlets thanks to @schmittx.

And in case you missed it, @OttoWinter has created esphomeyaml, which allows you to program and deploy ESP chips throughout your house by using a Home Assistant inspired configuration.yaml. Check it out.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Breaking Changes

  • BOM sensor: 'Wind Direction kt' to 'Wind Speed kt' (fixes #14535) (@fabaff - #14541) (sensor.bom docs) (breaking change)
  • Removed attribute current_time from Raincloudy sensors to avoid being triggered by recorder component (@tchellomello - #14584) (raincloud docs) (switch.raincloud docs) (breaking change)
  • Remove Notify My Android component as it shut down on May 24 (@cgarwood - #14594) (notify docs) (breaking change)
  • CoinMarketCap sensor: It is no longer possible to query a ticker by the name of the currency (i.e. bitcoin). The API instead uses IDs (integers) for these tickers (i.e. bitcoin -> 1). Rounding of decimals is now configurable, because it made no sense to round to 2 decimals if display_currency was set to BTC, some values showed up as 0.00. (#14437) (@kotlarz - #14604) (sensor.coinmarketcap docs) (breaking change)
  • Give unknown zwave nodes a better name and don’t add them to entity registry (@andrey-git - #14353) (zwave docs) (breaking change)
  • The netdata sensor was re-worked to support all available details from Netdata. This requires you to adjust the your existing configuration if you use the netdata sensor. (@fabaff - #14613) (sensor.netdata docs) (breaking change)
  • Disallow automation.trigger without entity_id. Triggering all automations at once is most likely a user mistake but if it is really needed, one can use entity_id: group.all_automations. (@amelchio - #14724) (automation docs) (breaking change)
