Every Monday we take a step back and take a look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Another week past, full of amazing tech news! The milestone event of Kubernetes general integration with containerd; the release of Apache Wicket 8; the 10.8 GitLab release and more!

Who said fast can’t be safe?

GitLab is here once again to provide developers with efficient, fast and, most importantly, safer ways to deliver code! With the release of 10.8, GitLab, still holds true to its principles of Getting Things Done. One new feature, one major improvement and a new addition to the GitLab’s open source codebase are the highlights of the new release.

Have a closer look at all the fascinating changes and additions here.

Improve your architecture with Zuul

Always on the cutting edge of tech, Netflix has made their cloud gateway Zuul 2 open source. How does Netflix handle all the requests that come into its cloud infrastructure? Wonder no more. Last week, 2018 Netflix open sourced their cloud gateway Zuul 2.

The Netflix Tech Blog states about this cutting-edge service, “The Cloud Gateway team at Netflix runs and operates more than 80 clusters of Zuul 2, sending traffic to about 100 (and growing) backend service clusters which amounts to more than 1 million requests per second.” Those are some big numbers, but it comes as no surprise that with all the binge-watching on our laptops, tablets, phones, and game consoles Netflix needs some sturdy architecture.

Netflix promises that this version of Zuul is stable, so there should be no worry about jumping in right away to test some of its features.

But what can Zuul do for you? Check out our review here.

A swing and a hit for Wicket 8

It’s been a while since we last checked in on Apache Wicket, but news this week shows Wicket 8 is finally here. What’s new about this serverside Java framework? No rewrites necessary, just the ability to write less and do more.

Wicket is an open source, component oriented, Java web application framework with over a decade of experience. So, it’s exciting to see a new update from the Wicket team.

containerd 1.1 supports *all* Kubernetes features

The alpha version of the Kubernetes containerd integration was introduced in November 2017 and now a very important milestone has been achieved: the integration with containerd is generally available.

According to the blog post announcing the good news, containerd 1.1 can now be the container runtime for production Kubernetes clusters!

Containerd 1.1 works with Kubernetes 1.10 and above, and supports all Kubernetes features. The test coverage of containerd integration on Google Cloud Platform in Kubernetes test infrastructure is now equivalent to the Docker integration.

Check out all the details of this historic release here.
