We are pleased to announce the availability of Slurm release 22.05.0.

To highlight some new features in 22.05:

- Support for dynamic node addition and removal
- Support for native Linux 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 set of environment variables available in the
   Prolog/Epilog/PrologSlurmctld/EpilogSlurmctld scripts.
- New "--prefer" option to job submissions to allow for a "soft
   constraint" request to influence node selection.
- Optional support for license planning in the backfill scheduler with
   "bf_licenses" option in SchedulerParameters.
