Developer News

Rita Zhang of SIG-Security has found and patched two security vulnerabilities in Kubernetes in ImagePolicy webhooks and ServiceAccount. Tim Allclair also found a vulnerability in seccomp. Might wanna apply those patch updates as soon as you can.

Michael Morris has stepped down as co-lead of Gateway API GAMMA.

The community is brainstorming designs for a new contributor badge for registered Kubernetes contributors; design help wanted.

Reminder: please migrate your Prow jobs to the new cluster.

Release Schedule

Next Deadline: Exception Requests Due, July 10th

We are in Enhancements Freeze with 67 Enhancements on the tracking board. That hasn’t stopped the call for exceptions, though, with four already submitted.

Patch releases 1.27.3(yes, already), 1.26.6, 1.25.11, 1.24.15 came out last week. These include important security updates (see above). Note that next month’s patch release will be the last for version 1.24, so maybe start thinking about upgrading.
