UPCOMING PREVIEW RELEASES FOR ANSIBLE 2.10
The first beta release of Ansible Base 2.10 is currently scheduled for this Friday, May 29th, and nightly builds of Ansible 2.10 will begin on Tuesday, June 2nd. These nightly builds will be an excellent opportunity to begin testing collections and general functionality, and we encourage collection maintainers in particular to use this time to begin validation of their modules and content.
** We’ll be broadcasting loud and clear when the first nightly build is available, along with where and how to get it; stay tuned! **
This week saw the Ansible project roll over a significant milestone, 50,000 commits!
Want to make sure that your Ansible content is checked with every GitHub commit? There’s now a GitHub action to run Ansible Lint. Colin McCarthy walks you through the process in his blog post at ansible.com.
