Three years after initiating the Eclipse SmartHome project, I am proud to finally announce the general availability of openHAB 2.0, the first openHAB release that is based on Eclipse SmartHome!

This release replaces openHAB 1.8 as the officially recommended runtime, only the openHAB 1 compatible add-ons will be further maintained. They are now available in version 1.9.0 and can be used on existing openHAB 1.8 installations.
