Hi all- Feature freeze for Ansible-2.9.0 was last week. At that time, we also branched stable-2.9 from the devel branch. So features can continue to be opened against devel. They just won't be backported to stable-2.9.
The creation of the stable branch also means that if you have a bugfix that should be applied to the 2.9.0 release, it needs to be backported to the stable-2.9 branch after it has been merged into devel. Standard rules about backports (no features, higher risk bugfixes will be evaluated as to whether the risk outweighs the benefits, and backports need to have changelog fragments) apply. More information on backports can be found here: http://docs.testing.ansible.com/ansible/latest/community/development_process.html?highlight=backport#backporting-merged-prs Ansible 2.9.0 beta1 ============== Ansible 2.9.0b1 is now available! This is the first pre-release of ansible-2.9.0 (which is due out in the middle of October). It was scheduled to go out last week when we branched stable-2.8 but we found several bugs which we decided to fix before beta1. That makes beta1 one week late. We have enough time in the schedule to absorb that slip without changing the dates for the release candidates and final so there's no change to the rest of the schedule at this time. How do you get it? ------------------ $ pip install ansible==2.9.0b1 --user The tar.gz of the release can be found here: * 2.9.0b1 https://releases.ansible.com/ansible/ansible-2.9.0b1.tar.gz SHA256: 170ebf5586d9510f6bc7f6ec4a4bfd39cdd46d56974fe5ac2b53ce720d8fedf7 What's new in 2.9.0b1 --------------------- The full changelog is at: * 2.9.0b1 https://github.com/ansible/ansible/blob/stable-2.9/changelogs/CHANGELOG-v2.9.rst What's the schedule for future releases? ---------------------------------------------------- Please see the roadmap for the expected dates for the 2.9.0 release candidates and final release: https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/devel/roadmap/ROADMAP_2_9.html Porting Help ------------ We've published a porting guide at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/devel/porting_guides/porting_guide_2.9.html to help migrate your content to 2.9.
