        Would it make sense to add a release date to the release notes?
        I think people would find it helpful.

        Can you please let me know what exactly "NEW: openHAB - Device details and Insights report show information and shortcuts for openHAB integrations as well." means? I'm familiar with openHAB.

        Fing desktop is not showing if you have those openHAB devices, but it’s marking devices that are compatible with those. It’s about device capabilities, not actual installation or configuration of your network.

        O.k., I see it for Netatmo and Shelly devices. But not for AVM devices (which have a binding into openHAB too). I hope this references are not hand maintained for openHAB? Otherwise the maintainer is doomed to update this every month. :-)

        Fing Admins: Could you please release a Dark version of your desktop app, this white theme is very stressful on eyes.
        Thanks.

        My desktop has 1.4. Now there's v1.4.1  and my "orphan" laptop is still at 1.3.2 or some such. Maybe that's a good thing since I'm reading a few negatives for 1.4. Anyway, why hasn't my laptop updated? Better still why not include a manual update option for the user. So she/he can decide?

        I will pass on your feedback to our developers for consideration. In meantime, you can either download a new version and then overwrite the existing version and update. Thanks

        Thank you.  Very much enjoying Fing Desktop on my iMac.  Is there a timeline for full feature parity with the mobile apps?
