What's new in Ansible 7

* New command-line utility “ansible-community” is added in Ansible 7
to check the installed version of Ansible Community package.

$ ansible-community --version
Ansible community version 7.3.0

* Python wheels are now available for both Ansible 7 and ansible-core
2.14.x, resulting in significantly improved installation performance.

* In addition, Ansible 7 will no longer install some unnecessary files
from the included Ansible collections such as tests or hidden files &
directories in order to further improve installation performance and
reduce the size on disk. These files are still available in the source
tarball if necessary.

* The changelog for ansible-core 2.14 installed by this release of
ansible is available here:

* Collections which have opted into being a part of the Ansible-7
unified changelog will have an entry on this page:

* For collections which have not opted into the unified changelog, you
may find more information on or their
source repository.

Porting Help

A unified porting guide for collections which have opted-in is available here:

Getting collection updates from Ansible 7 with older releases of ansible-core

Ansible 6 includes ansible-core 2.14.x and users have expressed an interest
in getting collection updates as they ship in the Ansible "batteries
included" package while keeping an older version of ansible-core based
on their needs and requirements.

An ansible-galaxy requirements file based on the collections from
Ansible 6 has been made available for this use case:

Once the requirements file has been downloaded, the collections can be
installed by running:
"ansible-galaxy collection install -r galaxy-requirements.yaml"

On behalf of the Ansible community, thank you and happy automating!
