2022-04 Metrics Release is Official

The 2022-04 Metrics Release has now been officially shipped. ? Huge thanks to all those from the working groups who worked on these metrics, and special extra thanks to Matt Germonprez and Yehui Wang for help with quality control, Vinod Ahuja for helping the working groups finalize changes, and Kevin Lumbard who is our release manager and keeps this whole machine rolling along. There are hours and hours of work behind the scenes for every metrics release and we are super grateful to the whole team for making sure things go according to plan.
This release includes 7 new metrics, 2 name changes, and 2 metrics who are now considered to be metrics models.

Huge thanks go out to our whole team of reviewers, who volunteer their time to review and provide feedback on all applications. Special thanks to Matt Cantu Snell, who has grown and shepherded this program from its infancy and continues to be an integral part of the automated processes and badging bot. Amazing work everyone!
