Release Schedule

Next Deadline: Release schedule & team completed, September 9th

The enhancements team is planning to use a GitHub project board to track enhancements. This will make the feature opt-in process different (and hopefully better): instead of adding your SIG’s features to a spreadsheet, SIG leads tag them with the label lead-opted-in.

Cherry-picks for the next round of patch releases are due September 9th. This update will involve new golang versions, again.

website#33992: Add a security checklist for clusters

SIG-Security and SIG-Docs have helped develop a “you should at least know about all these things” checklist for securing a production Kubernetes cluster. This is a great resource for helping new admins get up to speed or, perhaps, checking if you haven’t missed anything critical in this fast moving world of threat management. A highly recommended read for all.

website#35908: New Docs page for API Server Bypass Risks

A security two-for-one week! SIG-Security has also written up a guide for understanding the major attack surfaces of Kubernetes outside of kube-apiserver. Many of these will be well known to long-time contributors and users but they are easy to miss when designing a security posture and a refresher never hurt anyone.

Other Merges

Testing Overhaul: HPA scale-to-zero tests, better e2e failure output
