V1.76 * Made Rain Forecast Blueprint backward compatible to support custom weather integrations V1.75 * Bugfixes in the Rain Forecast Blueprint V1.74 * The Rain Forecast Blueprint is now compatible with Home Assistant 2023.9 and up.

Now retrieves new data every 15 minutes. v1.70: * Weather Blueprint: added the option to show humidity * Weather Blueprint: added the option to hide the weather condition text so that you only see the icon with conditions * Calendar Blueprint: added the option that you can enter how many hours in advance the agenda items should be shown * Calendar Blueprint: delimiter will not be shown after the last calendar item anymore * Calendar Blueprint optimization: value will only change when the calendar items change V1.69: * Added the HorizontalLine effect * Added a new Blueprint: Awtrix List Calendar that shows the calendar events for your chosen calendar for the next 24 hours. V1.68: * Added the effects option to show a background effect on Notifications and Apps. If you only want to show the effect in a notification, then simply do not enter a text in the notification. * Bugfixes V1.67: * Removed the possibility to select the eyes app because it's removed from Awtrix Light V0.71 V1.66: * You can now choose MULTIPLE clocks * BREAKING CHANGE: You need to edit all your existing automations that are based on these blueprints and select the clocks for each automation. V1.65: * Added the Repeat option for Custom Apps and Notifications * Added the Scroll option for Custom Apps and Notifications * Added the Scroll Speed option for Custom Apps and Notifications V1.64: * Added the possibility to select an input text helper as a sensor for the Sensor App Blueprint. It's now possible to trigger the automation based on a Text Helper value as well. V1.63: * Added stack option to notrifications. Defines if the notification will be stacked. "Off" will immediately replace the current notification. Compatible with Awtrix Light v0.66 and above. V1.62: * Now three indicators are supported in the Indicators Blueprint. Note: the Indicators blueprint assumes that you created three toggle helpers: input_boolean.awtrix_display_indicator_1, input_boolean.awtrix_display_indicator_2, and input_boolean.awtrix_display_indicator_3. This is needed to make sure your already created automations that use the Indicators Blueprint will not break. You don't need to create these helpers and can still use any toggle helper you like. Compatible with Awtrix Light v0.63 and above. V1.61: * The new stock App Eyes can now be enabled and disabled using the Toggle Stock App Blueprint V1.60: * Added a blink speed number selector for the indicators in the indicator blueprint. Supports Awtrix firmware 0.62 or higher. V1.59: * Added a new Blueprint to convert your Awtrix Clock into a mood light. Awtrix Light Firmware 0.61 or higher is needed for this to work. V1.58: * If you have multiple clocks in your house, you can target a specific clock in the notification Blueprint, so that the middle button for that specific clock will dismiss the notifcation when pressed. This fix is created to prevent tools as Watchman to report errors for non used entity ids. * BREAKING CHANGE: If you already had multiple clocks in your house, the middle button of the extra clocks will not work automatically anymore. You have to go through all the notification automations for each extra clock to select that specific clock to make it work again. V1.57: * Added a toggle to the Indicators Blueprint to toggle an alert sound on and off. Make sure you've uploaded the alert.txt file to the MELODIES folder to make this work. V1.56: * Re-added the Lifetime option. This option resulted in errors in older Awtrix firmware. Make sure you have at least Awtrix Light firmware version 0.58 installed to let this work properly. * Up to 3 Ulanzi displays now support the middle button to dismiss a notification for you people with multiple clocks in your home. * Streamlined some code to make it future-proof. V1.55: * The middle button of the Ulanzi clock now dismisses a notification and sets the corresponding toggle helper to Off. NOTE: This uses the default entity ID for the middle button of the Ulanzi clock which is binary_sensor.button_select. If you renamed this entity ID, this function will not work! V1.54: Removed the lifetime setting from the Blueprints. This setting causes the device to reboot every now and then. V1.53: * Added the option to toggle if the clock should switch to the app immediately when the value of the sensor changes. V1.52: * Fixed bug in Forecast Blueprint that pointed hardcoded to OpenWeatherMap. V1.51: * An alert tone can now be played when a notification is triggered. Make sure you copy the alert.txt file into the MELODIES folder of Awtrix Light to make this work. V1.5: * Added the possibility to select media players in the Awtrix Crteate Sensor App. It's now possible to show the artist and song on the clock when a new song starts playing on the selected media player. * Added a Template field. You can now format your sensors so that they look exactly like you want them to look! V1.43: * Renaming the prefix in Awtrix Light and in Home Assistant to the same name will not break the apps anymore. V1.42: * Added option to select a background color for notifications and custom apps. * Fixed rain forecast bug that in some cases did not show a graph. V1.41: * Fixed new App Time setting so that it matches the new API variable. V1.4: * Added Blueprint for the Rain Forecast Graph. It will show a bar chart or line chart for the Rain Forecast. If no rain is expected in the next couple of hours it will show a custom message instead. V1.3: * Added app lifetime option to sensor app and weather app Blueprints. This removes the custom app when there is no update after the given time in seconds. V1.2: * Some textual changes in the indicator blueprint. V1.1: * It's now possible to select to show temperature and windspeed optionally in Weather app. * Added new Blueprint to toggle indicators.
