New features


  • Updated supported Kubernetes versions to newest patch-levels to mitigate several CVEs (CVE-2021-44716, CVE-2021-44717, CVE-2021-3711, CVE-2021-3712, CVE-2021-33910). Cluster control planes have been automatically updated. Please update your Machine Deployments soon, at a time convenient for you. Updating your Machine Deployment will lead to worker node recreation and rolling restarts of your Deployments and Statefulsets.
