Update: the rationale for NOT implementing this are quite clear and listed below - I completely see why this feature is NOT going to happen. I recommend moderators keep this post searchable for others to find when they search,
I know this is quite a polarising topic - but I’d like to resurrect the request for an option to automatically install the latest hub firmware. Ideally it’d let me choose to install:
- nothing - just manual updates
- patch updates e.g.2.3.x
- minor updates eg 2.x.x
- All updates
Of course I know that sometimes there are breaking changes even in patches or minor updates (eg recent cloud backup changes) and there should be an additional option to apply or skip them automatically.
The main motivation here is that I want my automation to be “set and forget”. I don’t want to have to be checking or manually tweaking stuff all the time, and I believe automatically staying up to date with iterative improvements is easier than making big jumps every 6 months.
