Release 0.8.4 – Expanding the horizons

This release brings three new modules and expands authentication options for all plugins in the collection.

And because we would love your feedback, we’ve set up an issue tracker repository on GitHub for the collection. Help us improve by letting us know if you have any problems using the collection or any ideas for making it better!

New features:

  • It is now possible to authenticate with AWS CLI profiles via a new auth.profile parameter.

  • New module - ec2_volume.

  • New module - ec2_volume_info.

  • New module - s3_bucket_info.

Bug fixes:

  • ec2_security_group now ignores ICMP type/code parameters instead of failing when they are provided with non-ICMP protocols.
