Kubernetes 1.8 has been released.
The main focus for this release is around Stability, Security, and Storage Support.
Releases for this open source container orchestration engine are scheduled for every three months. The latest included contributions from individual contributors as well as employees of Avi Networks, CoreOS, Google, Heptio, Huawei, Microsoft, Red Hat and Samsung SDS and other companies.
“Rather than being a grandiose release with many new features, this is a release that deepens existing features,” said Aparna Sinha, group product manager for Kubernetes at Google. Google initially released Kubernetes as open source, though the software codebase is managed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
