Updates and bugfixes:
- Fix the
recognizer_loop:wakewordmessage. This is now sent as soon as the wakeword is detected. Thanks to @speedfox-uk for identifying and fixing this.
- Improved STT and TTS error handling, that falls back to default services.
- Faster external interaction with the messagebus, for those interacting with commandline tools.
- Removed support for Python 3.4 which has reached it’s end-of-life. This also allows us to push forward with newer features of Python and upgrade to newer third-party packages. Ake has penned a farewell poem in the release notes, so definitely worthing checking out the detailed notes for this release.
- A range of additional bugfixes
See all the details in the v19.8.3 release notes.
A special thanks to @speedfox-uk our Community contributor for this release.
