Well, one thing, a tablet interface, which was the easiest thing to technically do, but given how hard it was politically inside ST (assuming)… Given that timeline, I’m sure the rest of the stuff is coming in the next 4 years.
But seriously, the lack of communication AHEAD OF TIME!!! that UI changes are coming that effect developers is the real continuous disappointment.
Of course, they regressed font rendering in a bunch of tile layouts (AGAIN for the Nth time)… Same ol, same old…

Is there any chance you’d consider releasing your ST SmartApp for Imperihome as Open Source? Most of us are very familiar with installing custom SmartApps in the ST IDE for our accounts. This would at least get you some feedback on how well your product works with SmartThings from a group of people that are very knowledgeable on the platform. You might also generate some revenue from the App/Play Store sales!
So…over a year later and where do we stand on this? I have thousands of dollars invested around ST and would like to purchase some more stuff, but have stopped because developers cannot integrate anymore.
I am sure you have some grand plan, but you are taking way too long to share.
I am real worried about the new changes coming. I have not been told to upgrade to the new app yet but I can tell you that 90% of my devices and smart apps are custom built by myself and a few others. If custom isn’t supported going forward my entire automated home and work systems will be offline. I too have thousands invested. I will have to find a new hub to support and start all over if this happens. It has be concerned.
I don’t have more information than you, but I’m pretty sure it will be possible to continue to have custom devices & apps. It’s already available if you want to build in-cloud devices or in-cloud apps.
My hope will be an integration of new technologies like dotnet core for running locally in the hub…
