Developer News

Kubernetes 1.16 came out last week!

Don’t forget that we removed a bunch of deprecated APIs in this release, which may break things for you, especially Helm. Yes, you’re gonna have to update your charts.

While the blog has the top new features, let’s explore some less-hyped 1.16 features that you may nonetheless care about:

Release Schedule

Next Deadline: 1.17 Release Cycle Begins, Sept. 23
