ESPHome 2023.9.0 - 27th September 2023¶
LibreTiny is a platform for the RTL87xx and BK72xx family of chips. ESPHome leverages this platform and brings the powerful yet simple YAML configuration to these chips.
It has been months in the making, and many back and forwards with @kuba2k2 (and all of the contributors to LibreTiny), but we finally got there and merged it in.
WireGuard is a new component that allows you to connect to a WireGuard® Peer.

next time you install each device.
Enum device class¶
enum device class was removed from ESPHome to keep in sync with Home Assistant. The class was already not able to be used by
any of the built in components and only potentially used by
