Subject: [ansible-devel] Ansible 2.4.0 RC1 is ready for testing


Hi all, we're happy to announce that Beta1 for 2.4.4 is now available
for testing.

How do you get it?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

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

https://releases.ansible.com/ansible/ansible-2.4.4-0.1.beta1.tar.gz
SHA256: 5ab0a3869f5db07e233b5b05941290f3ccf0dc12519aab230dd4ae48bfff44b1

You can also test against the git repository as follows:

$ git clone https://github.com/ansible/ansible.git
$ cd ansible
$ git checkout v2.4.4-0.1.beta1

You can then source our testing script:

$ . hacking/env-setup

or you can build your own .tar.gz (output will be dist/ansible-2.4.4.0.tar.gz):

$ make sdist

If you discover any errors, or if you see any regressions from
playbooks which work on 2.4.3 and prior, please open a Github issue
and be sure to mention you're testing against this release candidate.
