Hi all! We're happy to announce that Alpha 1 for 2.5.0 is now available.

Note that while the core engine is feature complete, community module 
freeze is next week, so new modules and features will appear in the next 

How do you get it?

For the first time, all Ansible pre-releases in the 2.5 series will be 
published to PyPI. This is probably the easiest way for most users to 

$ pip install ansible==2.5.0a1 --user

The tar.gz of the release can be found here:

SHA256: 629db1896086495a82a13e72078d7f1dc4f518d2c6af682d1cff6520e1c506c7

You can also test against the git repository as follows:

$ git clone https://github.com/ansible/ansible.git
$ cd ansible
$ git checkout v2.5.0a1

You can then source our testing script:

$ . hacking/env-setup

or you can build your own .tar.gz (output will be 

$ make sdist

We've published a draft porting guide at 
https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/devel/porting_guide_2.5.html to help 
migrate your content to 2.5. If you discover any errors, or if you see any 
regressions from playbooks which work on 2.4.x and prior, please open a 
Github issue, and be sure to mention you're testing against 2.5.0a1.
