We are pleased to announce the availability of Slurm release candidate 
version 22.05rc1.

To highlight some new features coming in 22.05:

- Support for dynamic node addition and removal
- Support for native cgroup/v2 operation
- Newly added plugins to support HPE Slingshot 11 networks 
(switch/hpe_slingshot), and Intel Xe GPUs (gpu/oneapi)
- Added new acct_gather_interconnect/sysfs plugin to collect statistics 
from arbitrary network interfaces.
- Expanded and synced the set of environment variables available in the 
Prolog/Epilog/PrologSlurmctld/EpilogSlurmctld scripts.
- Added "--prefer" option to job submissions to allow for a "soft 
constraint" request to influence node selection.

This is the first release candidate of the upcoming 22.05 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 22.05.x version and we 
will address them before the first production 22.05.0 release is made.

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