Release Notes for KubeSlice OSS 0.7.0

Release date: 14th April 2023

KubeSlice is a cloud-independent platform that combines network, application, Kubernetes, and deployment services in a framework to accelerate application deployment in a multi-cluster and multi-tenant environment. KubeSlice achieves this by creating logical application slice boundaries that enable seamless communication between pods and services across clusters, clouds, edges, and data centers.

We continue to add new features and enhancements to KubeSlice.

What's New

These release notes describe the new changes and enhancements in this version.

Controller Events

KubeSlice creates controller events and stores them in the kubeslice-controller and kubeslice-project namespaces. The events can be retrieved using the corresponding command. For more information, see controller events.

Slice and Cluster Health

You can now monitor slice and cluster health using the corresponding description commands. For more information, see slice and cluster health.

Removal of the Cert Manager Dependency

The cert-manager is no longer required to install the KubeSlice Controller on the controller cluster. With this version, the KubeSlice Controller supports upward compatibility. This means that the cert-manager installed does not have any impact on the KubeSlice Controller. However, the cert-manager is still required for the version 0.6.0 and older versions of the KubeSlice Controller to work.

Service Export Discovery

To identify the exported services from a worker cluster that have different names other than the slice.local name, a new property called aliases has been introduced as part of the service export configuration.

The Node IP is Editable

The node IP for the worker cluster that is registered with the controller can now be edited. If KubeSlice could not detect a node IP during registration, you can enter it by editing a cluster.
