Hello MAASters! The MAAS development summaries are back!
Over the past 3 weeks, the team has made good progress on three main areas. The development of 2.3, maintenance for 2.2, and out new and improved python library (libmaas).
MAAS 2.3 (current development release)
The first official MAAS 2.3 release has been prepared. It is currently undergoing a heavy round of testing and will be announced separately once completed. Here is what the MAAS team have done over the last three weeks:

- Added the ability to configure an upstream proxy.
- Network beaconing & better network discovery
- Rack registration has been refactored in order to allow deferred fabric creation and region/rack version reporting.
- End-to-end testing of the two-phase approach to interface registration. Ensure the new approach is fully backwards compatible when there is a mix of MAAS versions in use.
- Fix bugs related to initial fabric creation upon registration:
- Started Hardware Testing Phase 2
- UX team has completed the initial wireframes and gathered feedback.
- Started changes to collect and gather better test results.
