VSHN.timer #211: Kubernetes v1.29 is Here!

18. Dez 2023

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about the latest release of Kubernetes and more news about our preferred container orchestrator ever.

1. Kubernetes v1.29, codenamed „Mandala“ (The Universe) is the last release of 2023 and consists of 49 enhancements! This release is inspired by the beautiful art form that is Mandala—a symbol of the universe in its perfection, reflecting the community’s interconnectedness.


2. If you’ve been working with Kubernetes, you’re likely familiar with the Ingress API, which has been the go-to solution for managing external access to services. ingress2gateway is a tool that can help you migrate from Ingress to Gateway API, recently graduated to GA.


3. Tiffany Jernigan and Jérôme Petazzoni share in this Cloud Native Rejekts 2023 presentation 7 tricks (well, actually 19!) to improve your productivity and reduce your frustration with Kubernetes, ranging from running a local cluster, grepping JSON from kubectl, to connecting to services in other namespaces.


4. In the rapidly evolving field of container orchestration, Kubernetes reigns supreme. This post by Christian Haller from our friends at Puzzle explores Kubermatic, a potential alternative to other Kubernetes distributions.


5. Still a work in progress, kube-bind is a prototype project that aims to provide better support for service providers and consumers that reside in distinct Kubernetes clusters.
