No more Raspberry Pi GPIO!!??
How dare you!
This is copied from HA blog post:
"If there is one thing that technology firms are very good at, it is launching new products. However, maintaining the products and making sure they keep working is an afterthought for most. The result is that vendors can decide to no longer support your device, crippling it’s features or even prevent it from working at all.
As we install more and more devices in our home, durability is becoming more and more important. We shouldn’t have to buy everything new every couple of years because the manufacturer decided to move on.
Durability for the Open Home means that devices are designed and built to keep working. Not just this year, but for the next decade."
Removing gpio is exactly that, crippling our devices.
Reading this conversation makes me angry:
" The Raspberry Pi platform is officially supported by Home Assistant and is recommended for use. GPIO is one of the main hardware features of the Raspberry Pi.
According to analytics, the Raspberry Pi GPIO integration is currently used by more than 1,100 people, which indicates that it is quite in demand.
I hope we could keep at least the basic GPIO capabilities that this integration currently provides.

It won’t. The decision has been made and formalized in #686.
The integration has been deprecated, as of Home Assistant Core 2022.2, and pending removal for Home Assistant Core 2022.6. "
Used by more than 1,100 people!
Are you really that alienated from the actual users??
