Hi folks! Reminder: Cloud Foundry Summit CFP closes May 21st.
From the Last Few Weeks:
- CF Summit co-chairs have been announced!
- Here’s an update on Bionic Stemcell work.
- Seth Boyles (VMware) was confirmed as the new lead for the CAPI team.
- Alex Berez (VMware) was confirmed as the new lead for the CLI team.
- Read the App Runtime PMC notes from last week’s meeting. Or watch the video.
- Jesse Weaver is stepping down as lead for the Logging & Metrics team, and moving to a different role at VMware. Benjamin Fuller (VMware) has been nominated to take over as lead for that project.
- Here’s the video from today’s cf-for-k8s SIG meeting, with some in-depth discussion on the Vision for CF on Kubernetes doc.
- A very thoughtful essay, largely about Cloud Foundry: Is 2021 the Year of the Paas? – Ruurd
- And, a blog post from James Hunt of Stark & Wayne reflecting on (not quite) A Decade with Cloud Foundry
- Watch Ram & Shedrack’s most recent livestream on CI/CD with Circle CI and Cloud Foundry.
- Docs have been moved to the cf-for-k8s.io website.
- Istio has been upgraded to an in-support version, with an additional upgrade to follow.
- The config block resource_validator_certificate for Eirini has been removed. It was introduced in v3.1.0 via the Eirini bump, so this is regarded as a breaking change.
- This release supports mitigating the previously introduced interface change and preparation for an additional Istio update.
- Istio bump
- Note: Istio does not support jump upgrades, so you MUST upgrade to v4.0 before upgrading to v4.1
- BOSH v271.8.0
- gosigar v1.2.0
- diego-release v2.50.0
- cf-networking-release v2.36.0
