The trait `display_interface::WriteOnlyDataCommand` is not implemented for `SPIInterface

Hello, I am trying to create an spi connection to an oled display on an esp32-s3. I keep stumbeling on a WriteOnlyDataCommand is not implemented for SPIInterface error. I have been trying to go through examples and the docs, but can't find any way to get past this hurdle. Help would be greatly appreciated.


use esp_backtrace as _;
use esp_hal::{
    clock::ClockControl, delay::Delay, gpio::Io, peripherals::Peripherals, prelude::*,
    spi::master::Spi, spi::SpiMode, system::SystemControl,

use display_interface_spi::SPIInterface;
use ssd1309::{mode::GraphicsMode, Builder};

fn main() -> ! {
    let peripherals = Peripherals::take();
    let system = SystemControl::new(peripherals.SYSTEM);

    let mut clocks = ClockControl::max(system.clock_control).freeze();
    let delay = Delay::new(&clocks);


    // Setup the i2c connection
    let io = Io::new(peripherals.GPIO, peripherals.IO_MUX);
    // let sda = io.pins.gpio8;
    let sclk = io.pins.gpio12;
    let mosi = io.pins.gpio13;
    let miso = io.pins.gpio11;
    let cs = io.pins.gpio10;
    let dc = io.pins.gpio18;

    let mut spi = Spi::new(peripherals.SPI2, 100.kHz(), SpiMode::Mode0, &mut clocks).with_pins(

    let spi_interface = SPIInterface::new(spi, dc);


    loop {
        log::info!("Hello world!");

the error I am getting:

I bet this is the case.

@paramagnetic thanks for the pointer. I totally missed that :frowning: I kept following the other examples, but obviously they were based on older versions. Thank you! Now at least I have a new battle plan:).
