Software Update: Home Assistant Core 0.114.0

Version 0.114 of Home Assistant Core has been released. Home Assistant Core is an open source home automation platform that runs under Python 3. It runs via Hassbian on a Raspberry Pi 3 or a Linux, macOS or Windows computer. It supports detecting devices such as Nest thermostats, Philips Hue, Belkin WeMo switches, Mr. Coffee makers, the smart switches from IKEA and the mqtt protocol. In addition, where possible, it can control these devices and apply automation. For more information, please refer to this page and our Forum. The announcement for this release can be found below.

0.114: Dark mode, Open Z-Wave progress and more automation & scripts

Ooh boy, time flew this release cycle; it’s time for 0.114 already! Personally, I’m hardly even done implementing all automation features added in the previous release.

Ever since our Lovelace UI started as a beta, back in 2018, one of the most requested features – arguably – is a dark mode. No wonder, as a dark mode is added to software everywhere nowadays.

This release adds dark mode! @bramkragten didn’t stop there and added color pickers for the main theme colors as well. I looked forward having it, an easy way of having a bit of theming, without the need for themes.

This is by far the most noticeable feature of this release, mainly because it is immediately apparent after the upgrade.

Meanwhile, the beta Open Z-Wave integration picks up speed in terms of contributions, reports, fixes and improvements. I’ve been using it already, and I love it. My Z-Wave network has never been better and more stable. If you haven’t tried it yet, I would highly recommend doing so. there is a nice community guide on how to test it without switching over.

Besides the listing below, 0.114 may feel a bit “empty”, however, it isn’t. It’s packed with little things and fixes. The “All changes” section is definitely worth a look at this release.

Enjoy the release.
