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

To highlight some new features 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.
- Allowed Slurm to automatically create directories for stdout/stderr
   files. These can include substitution directives such as %j, %a,
   and %x.

The main Slurm documentation site at https://slurm.schedmd.com/ has been 
updated to the new release now as well.

Slurm can be downloaded from https://www.schedmd.com/downloads.php .
