KubeWeekly #209: March 27, 2020

The Headlines

Editor’s pick of the highlights from the past week. 

Kubernetes 1.18
Kubernetes 1.18 is the first release of 2020! Kubernetes 1.18 consists of 38 enhancements: 15 enhancements are moving to stable, 11 enhancements in beta, and 12 enhancements in alpha.
Kubernetes 1.18 is a “fit and finish” release. Significant work has gone into improving beta and stable features to ensure users have a better experience. An equal effort has gone into adding new developments and exciting new features that promise to enhance the user experience even more. Having almost as many enhancements in alpha, beta, and stable is a great achievement. It shows the tremendous effort made by the community on improving the reliability of Kubernetes as well as continuing to expand its existing functionality.

Kubernetes 1.18 is out – almost! A bug has pushed it back a day. While you’re waiting, release team lead Jorge Alarcon will tell you all about the fit and finish you can expect in the release when it’s out tomorrow. Adam and Craig bring you the other community news of the week, as well as some podcast follow-up.
