Release Notes for KubeSlice OSS 0.6.0
Release date: 16th Feb 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.

Initstate due to this upstream NSM issue.
- If a node that contains the application pods and NSM webhook pod scheduled on it is restarted, the NSM containers are not injected into the application pod.
This occurs as the NSM webhook pod manages the lifecycle of the NSM
