Ansible 6.0.0a3 (including ansible-core 2.13.0) is now available for testing! It features, amongst other things, significantly improved installation performance on top of the latest updates from the included Ansible collections. This is a good opportunity to test the upcoming releases of both ansible and ansible-core and report feedback ahead of their releases.

You can find the release announcement on ansible-announce and the changelog on GitHub. Happy automating!

COLLECTION UPDATES 🪄

community.general 5.0.0 (changelog) has been released. The 5.0.0 release is the first one to drop support for Ansible 2.9 and ansible-base 2.10, which allows the collection to stop shipping a large number of symlinks and use meta/runtime.yml for routing instead.

PROPOSALS - DISCUSS AND VOTE! 🗳️

hunleyd said

The community.postgresql maintainers need your feedback! A proposal for formalizing the supported PG versions has been filed here and needs your input. If adopted, the collection will issue major releases yearly and each major release will officially support the five major version of PG supported at that time. We think this will ultimately improve the collection and improve the end user's experience but we need your input. We look forward to hearing from everyone!
