The first Linkerd release of the year has arrived—version 2.7 provides Vault and cert-manager integration, dashboard updates, breaking changes, bug fixes and more. Let’s take a closer look at what the latest version of the Kubernetes service mesh has to offer.
The latest release of Linkerd adds some new features, including a new traffic splitting API. Stable version 2.4.0 also adds support for the Kubernetes Service Mesh Interface, fixes a number of bugs and issues, and improves performance. Linkerd also recently received high praise for its security after an eighteen-day long security audit.
Linkerd increases its security with the latest stable release, 2.3. Now it turns on authenticated, confidential communication between meshed services on by default. Besides buffing up its security, Linkerd 2.3 also adds a new Community page for news and updates and improvements to the web dashboard.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we explored the new JAX Mag, Project Helidon 1.0, and Linkerd 2.2. Also, we explored the how Clojure and Kotlin are a great fit for the JVM, Jib 1.0 is ready for production, and more!
Linkerd 2.2 welcomes two experimental features, graduates auto-inject to be a fully-supported feature
Linkerd 2.2 represents the result of months of work so it’s no wonder that this release is packed with features. Plus, auto-inject is no longer experimental! Let’s have a closer look at all the goodies included in this release.
