What's New with Mycroft

v0.9.7 is Here.

Thanks to our team member, forslund, for rolling this out.

 

 

E-mail Send #1230

The skills API now includes a self.send_email() method, allowing the skill to send an e-mail to the user. This is practical if the skill wants to send a link to the user, or for things such as shopping lists.

 

 

Metrics #1247

The Device API now includes a metrics method, allowing skills and core to upload information to the Mycroft server should the user allow it. The method is very general purpose and can take any method as long as it can be serialized to json.

Skills developer can easily access this functionality using the self.report_metric method in the Skill API.
