Hi all, we're happy to announce that RC2 for 2.2.0 is now available for

This release candidate addresses the following bugs:

* More Python 3 fixes for the core engine.
* Fixed several bugs related to locating files relative to role/playbook
* Lots of fixes for networking modules.
* Several fixes for bugs found in the new include_role feature, especially
in terms of loops.
* Fixed a bug in the way hosts were tested for failed states, resulting in
incorrectly skipped block sessions.
* Several fixes to improve parsing of INI files and better error messages
during inventory parsing in general.
* Added feature to make interprocess polling interval configurable
(internal_poll_interval in ansible.cfg [general]), to allow people to tweak
this setting for different playbooks.
* Fixed a bug in the way our custom JSON encoder is used for the to_json*
* Fixed a bug in which the `free` strategy was not correctly returning
internal codes, resulting in incorrect task execution when using blocks.
* Fixed some bugs related to the use of non-ascii characters in become
* Fixed a bug in which a unicode file name caused errors in inventory
* Some fixes to the pbrun become method, to remove the `-b` option by
default (re-add to become_flags if you need it back).
* Fixed postgres* and subversion modules to ensure password fields were not
displayed when no_log=True is used.
* The `ansible_managed` string now defaults to something without variables
in it, so as to avoid incorrectly replacing files which have not changed.
* Moved 'Statically included...' messages to -vv verbosity.
