Improved stability and efficiency, and Python 3.10

The hunt to enhance the efficiency of House Assistant continues. For a lot of
@bdraco has been analyzing each single facet of
House Assistant and manages to make it sooner each single launch.

Often, we’ve got a piece on the finish of our launch notes informing you
in regards to the efficiency enhancements made. The enhancements on this launch,
nonetheless, are an enormous deal.

Our YAML & JSON tooling improved, utilizing sooner libraries and strategies.
JSON is used internally and for communication with the frontend, which is
A LOT snappier now. When you use a lot of YAML, you’ll undoubtedly discover this
when beginning House Assistant or reloading issues like your automations 🚀.

Units with an integration error throughout startup that may self-recover
will now try this immediately as quickly because the machine is found.

We now use a greater and sooner encryption methodology for the HomeKit Accent
Protocol (HAP). It improves the efficiency of the HomeKit, HomeKit Controller,
and Apple TV integrations and prepares House Assistant for iOS 16.

Change any climate unit to your choice

House Assistant has many climate companies that may be built-in; it’s
nice to have a alternative! The variations between these are sometimes their
accuracy on your area and the models of measurement used for the
totally different climate information factors.

However what for those who’d just like the barometric stress unit to be in mbar as an alternative of
hPa? Or perhaps use m/s or knots as an alternative of km/h for wind velocity? No downside!

Now you can change the models every climate entity makes use of! Not simply temperature,
however for the entire values a climate entity gives. When altering a unit,
House Assistant will care for changing the values for you.

all current climate integrations to help this 👍.

Labels as an alternative of values for gauge playing cards segments

When displaying an entity gauge card in your dashboard, it could present the
gauge with the sensor worth. For instance, for those who’d use a humidity sensor,
it reveals the humidity proportion in the midst of the gauge.

Within the 2022.5 launch, we added phase help to our gauge card.
On this launch, @kristjanbjarni added label help to these segments!

Which means in case your phase has a label, the gauge card will present
that label as an alternative of the sensor worth when it’s in that vary.

For extra data, take a look at our gauge card documentation.

Code editors now auto-complete MDI icons

All of our code editors within the frontend now have auto-completions for
MDI icons. Simply begin typing mdi: and it’ll make it easier to discover the precise icon
you want.

Like the conventional icon picker, it helps looking out on components of the icon
title, its aliases and classes. Moreover, it would present a little bit preview
of the icon you might be about to pick, so you recognize you bought the precise one.

Thanks @bramkragten, this can be a very nice addition!

Filter the historical past panel

If in case you have a lot of gadgets and entities then the

a number of areas, or by all entities of a number of gadgets.

Simply convert values to booleans in templates

If you’re into templates, @pyos has a shock for you: We now have a bool
operate that can be utilized as a filter too!

If you’re a bit into coding, this isn’t the usual bool(), however one which
could be very particular for House Assistant, making it very helpful.

This bool methodology converts a price right into a boolean and considers
House Assistant’s particular guidelines for truthy values. Some examples: "on" will
be thought of true, and "disabled" shall be thought of false.

Utilizing bool as a filter and mixed with and iif
filter, you’ll be able to rapidly change, for instance, binary sensors values into any
textual content you’d like.
