Changelog - Version 1.18.0 - 19th May 2021¶
It feels like I was just writing the release notes for 1.17 not long ago, so here’s to getting ESPHome going on a regular schedule.
Releases will be set for the 3rd Wednesday of each month, with a beta release starting 1 week earlier for those who would like to test that and help make sure it is stable.
Also now, an ESPHome device is able to connect to other BLE devices and become a BLE Client, reading sensors and controlling switches etc. You can read basic sensor values using the BLE Client Sensor component or use the data displayed in the logs to build a new native component that provides the sensors/switches/etc directly.
