Developer News

This week is (hopefully) 1.22 Release Week.

LWKD is now officially a publication of SIG-ContribEx Contributor Comms! So if you want to contribute to our weekly newsletter, that’s now a legit Kubernetes contribution. Please? Find us on #sig-contribex on Slack if you have questions.

Subproject bootkube is being transferred to current maintainers Kinvolk, and superseded project cluster-api-bootstrap-provider-kubeadm has been archived.

Release Schedule

Next Deadline: 1.22 Released, Wed August 4

This is the final few days to debug 1.22, so if you get tagged on a test fail please respond ASAP. Fortunately, due to great work across the project, we are down to 2 flakes in 1.22-Blocking and 4 in 1.22-Informing, and no failures. So things look good for the release.

Adolfo García Veytia published an excellent explanation of how release branch cherry-picks work now.

Speaking of cherry-picks, the deadline for patch releases is this Saturday, August 7.
