Introducing the New Ansible Galaxy
Over the past few months, the dedicated Red Hat Ansible team responsible for the Ansible Automation Hub and Ansible Cloud Automation Hub, both accessible via console.redhat.com, has been on a mission to elevate the galaxy_ng code base. This code base serves not only the components mentioned above but is also geared towards replacing galaxy.ansible.com with a brand-new, cutting-edge foundation.
From its inception, galaxy_ng was designed with the ambition of supplanting the aging galaxy.ansible.com while also serving as the core code base for the Automation Hub component within the Ansible Automation Platform. The enhanced galaxy is already accessible at beta-galaxy.ansible.com. We’ve been meticulously synchronizing the data to ensure it remains up-to-date.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be transitioning galaxy.ansible.com to this new codebase on September 30th. Our commitment to the next generation of Galaxy services on this unified codebase remains unwavering.
If you access Ansible Galaxy through the ansible-galaxy CLI or the new v3 API, the process is straightforward: regenerate your access token, you can immediately log in to beta-galaxy.ansible.com.
After the transition, the previous site will continue to be accessible at old-galaxy.ansible.com, serving as a read-only instance.
We warmly invite all contributors to provide their valuable feedback on forum.ansible.com, utilizing the galaxy tag.

Trip report - Ansible Community Day
The community day was an amazing thing - ~60 people, 8 talks, much great chat, and an evening out to remember. So much fun, so many action items for next week
I had a great time, but to tell it all would take up the whole Bullhorn, so I’ve written it up on the forum (where else, are you bored of me yet? ). Please do go add your own recollections, we’d love to hear them!
