Release Schedule

Next Deadline: Enhancements Freeze, June 13th, 2024

Enhancements freeze is just a few days away. This is your final reminder! Prepare your KEPs for the Production Readiness Review. If you plan to implement any features, deprecations, or removals during the 1.31 release cycle, ensure your KEP(s) are opted in before the Enhancements Freeze on June 13th.

Patch releases for all supported versions are expected out this week.

#124963 client-go: data consistency checker for list requests

The latest update to client-go introduces a data consistency checker for list requests, ensuring that data retrieved from the watch-cache matches data directly from etcd. This feature can be enabled by setting the KUBE_LIST_FROM_CACHE_INCONSISTENCY_DETECTOR environment variable. The consistency check is primarily intended for use in testing, not production, to catch potential data inconsistencies early. This tool is especially valuable for developers working on Kubernetes operators, providing an extra layer of validation to ensure the reliability of cached data.

KEP of the Week

KEP 3633: Introduce MatchLabelKeys and MismatchLabelKeys to PodAffinity and PodAntiAffinity

This KEP introduces MatchLabelKeys and MismatchLabelKeys to PodAffinityTerm to enhance scheduling nuances during pod upgrades. Its goal is to improve the scheduler’s ability to distinguish between old and new pod versions, addressing the issues of improper affinity adherence and optimizing node placement, especially during rolling updates in saturated or idle clusters.

This KEP is tracked for beta release in the upcoming v1.31.
