Release Schedule

Next Deadline: Enhancements Freeze, July 30

Currently the Release Team is collecting Enhancements, so get those KEPs up to date.

Patch release 1.15.1 came out July 18th, so if you’ve been waiting for that, you can now upgrade to version 1.15.

Add Ephemeral Containers to the Kubernetes core API

This is the first of three PRs to add support for Ephemeral Containers, also known as “distroless containers” or “debug containers”. These allow attaching a temporary container to a running pod for troubleshooting purposes.

This feature was originally proposed by Lee Verberne in mid-2016, and that PR has been open for 16 months. Just in case you though your PR was taking forever to merge.
