KubeWeekly #230: August 28, 2020

The Headlines

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

Kubernetes 1.19 released

Congratulations to the release team on getting Kubernetes 1.19 out the door. This release is all about extra time: the timelines were adjusted due to world events, and it will be the first to be supported for 12 months. This should allow an extra 30% of Kubernetes users to remain on a supported version on their regular upgrade cadence. The release includes 33 enhancements, including Ingress finally going to GA. Check out an interview with the release manager Taylor Dolezal on this week’s Kubernetes Podcast to learn more.

A Look Back at our FIRST KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Virtual Conference
Priyanka Sharma, CNCF

Priyanka Sharma recaps the first virtual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon and the event’s success thanks to our amazing community of doers – builders, operators and advocates! She writes, “we are so thrilled that the cloud native community came together with hope and positivity to make this a truly community-driven event we will remember for a long time. We may not have been able to meet in person this year but we are indomitable!” Read the recap blog here.
