We are pleased to announce the availability of Slurm release candidate 
version 23.02rc1.

To highlight some new features coming in 23.02:

- Added a new (optional) RPC rate limiting system in slurmctld.
- Added usage gathering for gpu/nvml (Nvidia) and gpu/rsmi (AMD)
- Added a new jobcomp/kafka plugin.
- Overhauled the 'remote resources' (licenses) functionality managed
   through sacctmgr / slurmdbd, and introduce a new 'lastconsumed' field
   that is intended to be frequently updated with the current usage as
   reported by 'lmstat' or similar tools. This allows for better
   cooperative license usage, especially for systems with external
   workstations and other use that is not under Slurm's control.
- Added a new 'scrun' command which can serve as a OCI runtime proxy.
- Support for --json/--yaml output from most Slurm commands, which has
   been extended to support additional filtering options.
- Extended "configless" operation to allow for propagation of files
   referenced in "Include" directives.
- Allow Slurm to create directories for stdout/stderr files. These can
   include substitution directives such as %j, %a, and %x.

This is the first release candidate of the upcoming 23.02 release 
series, and represents the end of development for this release, and a 
finalization of the RPC and state file formats.

If any issues are identified with this release candidate, please report 
them through https://bugs.schedmd.com against the 23.02.x version and we 
will address them before the first production 23.02.0 release is made.

Please note that the release candidates are not intended for production use.
