Hub Update 1.1.4

Hubitat Elevation Platform update 1.1.4 is now available:

We recommend that you periodically download a backup of your setup from the Settings page, Backup and Restore.

    • Fixed display of devices in conditions UI (old Rule).
    • Fixed pending off/on for delayed switches off/on with cancel.
    • Fixed references to rules in rule-to-rule connections for changed rule names.
    • N.B. This update to Rule Machine alters some internal data structures used for Rule to Rule connections, such as Rule Truth as a condition, Other Triggers as a trigger event, and Rule to Rule actions Evaluate Rules, Run Rule Actions, Run Actions, Repeat Rules, Stop Rules, and Set Private Boolean, in each case with respect to other rules. If you decide to roll back your platform software from 1.1.4 to an earlier release, you will also need to roll back your database. If you use these features of Rule Machine, you are advised to download you last database backup from 1.1.3 (or earlier build). If you roll back the platform software without rolling back your database, those rules that use these features will lose the references to other rules. These changes were made so that in the event you were to change the name of a rule that is used in these features, doing so would not break the rules that reference the rule with a changed name. This problem existed in prior builds.
