The Ansible project has released Ansible version 1.6, adding more than 30 new modules on top of new options, upgrades and fixes.

Ansible creator and CTO Michael DeHaan announced the release in a blog post, highlighting new modules for Amazon, Digital Ocean and Rackspace, as well as modules for CPAN, Twilio and others. The release also includes a VMware inventory script and provisioning module, and an example Docker inventory script that polls hosts for running containers.

DeHaan also pointed out that this release is Ansible’s last planned language change for some time, and version 1.6 removes legacy variables such as “$foo.” Ansible is an open-source automation engine for configuration management, application deployment and continuous delivery that deploys using a human-readable automation language.

Ansible 1.6 is live in the Python package index, and the full change log is available on GitHub.
