Developer News

There have been extra patch releases due to a breaking change, see below.

Kubernetes contributor Cody Crudgington has passed away unexpectedly. Cody was a dedicated Kubernetes contributor and organizer of contributor events and meetups. He will be missed; remember him online.

Label changes: all kubernetes/ repos will soon have access to the /area community-meeting label, so that you can flag an issue or PR for discussion at the monthly community meeting. Also, PRs that are auto-closed by the bot will be labelled Not Planned.

Polls are open for the Steering Committee election until Thursday, so please vote now. Your vote determines the leadership for the Kubernetes project.

Registration for the Contributor Summit is still open.

Release Schedule

Next Deadline: Next Deadline: Production Readiness Sept. 29th

Have your draft KEPs ready for the PRR team by Thursday, and final versions opted-in by Oct. 6. Current CI signal is green.

The September 15th patch releases broke user applications (see below). As such, new patch releases for 1.25.2, 1.24.6, 1.23.12, and 1.22.15 were pushed on Sept. 21. Users should skip the prior update and go straight to this one.

Limit redirect proxy handling to redirected responses #112526

We added redirect restrictions to the APIserver in the last patch release in order to close security hole CVE-2022-3172. However, that change mistakenly treated all 300 codes as redirects, including 304 Not Modified, breaking user code. As such, non-redirect codes have been exempted and new patch releases issued.

Other Merges

Testing Improvements: retroactive storage class, HPA CRDs E2E TLA test, volume snapshot tests
