Thank you all for making CF EU Summit a success!

I missed seeing you all in person, and dearly hope that can happen again soon. In the meantime, I suppose we’ll have to be content with virtual perks like wearing sweat pants to meetings, perpetual access to coffee brewed to your liking, and live-streamed alpacas.

Videos from Summit are up on YouTube! Here’s the 32 video playlist from the event. There are a lot of great talks here, so when you’ve got some time, dig in. 

Notable Releases:

  • CF-for-K8s hit v1.0.0! Blog post here. Congratulations to everyone who has worked towards this milestone! 
  • Stratos v4.2.0, with new Helm and Kubernetes extensions! Blog post here. More here
  • KubeCF v2.6.1.

From the Last Few Weeks:

  • Last week’s CAB call video is up here. Nice demo of Stark & Wayne’s very cool new cf-protect project.
  • Julz Friedman is stepping down as project lead for Eirini, and there is a call for nominations. IBM has nominated Julian Skupnjak for the lead. More here
  • Cloudfoundry.org got a nice facelift, with slick new pages for cf-for-k8s, KubeCF, and more.  
  • SUSE Cloud Application Platform announced v2.1 – blog post here.
  • Docker announced the Docker Open Source Program, which grants Cloud Foundry and other OSS projects exemptions from some new policy changes. More on that here.
