Ansible 9.0.0a1, the first pre-release of Ansible 9 was released earlier today. Ansible 9.0.0a1 depends on ansible-core 2.16.0b1. We packaged the two releases in Fedora 39 and Fedora Rawhide. We’d like to get ansible-core 2.16 into Fedora 39 so we can drop all the Python 3.12 support patches we have cherry picked on top of ansible-core 2.15. Also,
ansible-test is very picky about Python versions, and parts of it do not work properly with Python 3.12 + core 2.15.
Please help test the updates and leave feedback in the Fedora Updates System:
- Fedora 39 update: https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2023-5f1c7b81cd
- Fedora Rawhide update: https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2023-2fe0c256b3
Fedora 37 and 38 users can use gotmax23/ansible Copr to test out the new ansible release.
