Weekly round-up: Kubernetes 1.15, Istio 1.2, TIOBE Index update & more
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we welcomed the latest version of Kubernetes as well as Istio 1.2. Let’s have a look.
Kubernetes 1.15 arrives
The second Kubernetes release for 2019 is here! Kubernetes 1.15 has continuous improvement and extensibility as its main themes and it brings a nice list of improvements. This release includes a total of 25 enhancements including two features moving to stable and 13 in beta.
Check out all the interesting highlights here.
Istio 1.2 is out
The Istio team is back with a prompt release of Istio 1.2. The previous major release, Istio 1.1, took quite some time to go out due to some heavily manual work on testing and infrastructure. For that reason, 1.2 focuses on improving the stability of the features introduced in Istio 1.1 and the past several 1.1.x releases, and improving general product health.

TIOBE Index for June 2019
According to the TIOBE Index, Java is the most used programming language. It’s no surprise to see it rank so high on the index, month after month, with only a few dips and slips. Overall, Java popularity remains fairly consistent, marking it as a safe workhorse of a language for any developer. It stands right beside C in this regard.
However, will Java remain standing, unshaken in future indexes to come? Check out the latest update of the TIOBE Index here and find out more!
