ESPHome 2022.10.0 - 19th October 2022¶
This month we have been busy upgrading the Bluetooth Proxy support for Home Assistant. This meant there are many PRs awaiting reviews for new components that were unable to be reviewed and merged in time. We will be trying to pack the next release.
Python Version 3.9¶
ESPHome now requires Python 3.9 or newer. This is taken care of if you use the Home Assistant addon or docker image. If using pip, you will need to upgrade your Python version manually before ESPHome will upgrade.

ble_client sensor platform, a new

xpt2046 touchscreen component has been updated to be a platform of
touchscreen instead of a
top level component. This requires a small change to your configuration, see XPT2046 Touch Screen Controller (Updated version)
for the new way to configure.
