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.
These release notes describe the new changes and enhancements in this version.
KubeSlice creates controller events and stores them in the
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
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
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
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.
