Ansible panos_content Deprecated?

I've been trying to find the panos_content module and it looks that it was depricated. What is the proper way now to check/install software/dynamic updates?

Thanks

Working through this at the moment. The panos_op module has been added as of Ansible 2.5 which permits arbitrary operational commands (like request content upgrade check and the like)

Looking to combine that with parsing the output for now.

Kind of silly considering the kind of issues Ansible (and others) was intended to solve. Feels like classy screen scraping given the lack of a module.
