The Cloud Strikes Again (Update!)
TP-Link have made a “beta firmware” for users in the UK which are no longer able to access their TP-Link smart switches locally.
You need to email TP Link support with your device MAC addresses for them to manually push this over to your device. Hoping it rolls out as a standard firmware in the future.

Home Assistant Versioning
The beta for the latest Home Assistant release was tagged as 1.0! However starting from 0.119 / December 2020, Home Assistant versioning will be moving to a release year and month numbering, with the new release being 2020.12.0.
Monthly Release Cycle
With the new release versioning, comes a new release cycle. Home Assistant will move from a three-week release cycle to a monthly release cycle.
Home Assistant beta releases will come out on the last Wednesday of a month, and the public releases will land on the first Wednesday of a month.
Home Assistant Podcast in 2021
We generally have followed the release schedule of Home Assistant. In 2021, we’ll be slightly changing things up with Podcast episodes. We’ll be having dedicated release episodes each month for the latest features of Home Assistant.
We’ll then have separate Spotlight and guest focussed episodes, giving us more time to deep-dive into peoples smart home setups, and features around the Home Assistant ecosystem.
