The future of Kubernetes itself could well be found in the open source Crossplane project. That was one of the prevailing themes at the Crossplane Community Day Europe virtual event, which was held May 4 coinciding with Kubecon EU virtual conference that is running the same week.
Crossplane v1.2.0 is now live and includes a number of minor improvements across composition, package management, and documentation. The community has also continued to grow over the past few months, leading to the implementation of well-defined standards and processes for on-boarding new GitHub organization members and contributors.
Crossplane is often compared to HashiCorp’s Terraform. It’s common for enterprise platform teams to find Crossplane as they outgrow Terraform and look for alternatives, so there are parallels between the two open source projects.
v1.1 adds enhanced security for production deployments with Vault integration and several key Composition enhancements including bi-directional patching, patch deduplication, and resource re-ordering support. Rounding out the release is enhanced AWS Provider code generation with a new developer guide that has been picked up by the community to add resources like RDS DBCluster, Lambda functions and more!
Kubernetes has demonstrated the power of a well architected control plane with a great API. The industry is beginning to notice that this control plane can be used to do much more than orchestrate containers, and are increasingly looking to use the Kubernetes control plane to manage all of their infrastructure.
This release is a huge milestone for the Crossplane community! tada We're thankful to everyone who has contributed to the project since its launch two years ago. The core focus of this release has been making sure Crossplane is a project you can trust, with features and APIs that we can commit to supporting throughout the v1.x series of releases.
v0.14 is a hardening release with v1beta1 core APIs, enhanced error reporting, leader election, and multi-version XRD support – just ahead of the v1.0 release next month. More AWS cloud service primitives, customizable provider configurations, and several OAM enhancements round out this release!
The v0.14.0 release brings us one step closer to v1.0. With minimal breaking changes, more mature APIs, and refinements in performance and UX, this release demonstrates a commitment to stability and production readiness.
Our main focus in v0.13 is paving the way for a v1.0 release of Crossplane. Over the course of this release we have honed our core Composition and Package Manager APIs. With the help of the community we’ve arrived at APIs that we feel confident will reach v1beta1 imminently without significant breaking changes.
We are very pleased to announce that Crossplane has been accepted into the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a Sandbox project! The team of contributors has worked incredibly hard to grow the community and mature the project, so this is a great validation that Crossplane has reached a new
A collaboration between Upbound and Red Hat Emerging Technologies explores the Crossplane project and its recent optimization with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as an alternative to Open Service Broker API for provisioning, managing, and consuming external services by cloud native applications. In this blog post, we will build a
The v0.11.0 release officially introduces Crossplane as the Kubernetes runtime for the Open Application Model. Improved documentation and expanded support for infrastructure composition serve to clearly establish the core features of Crossplane and the separation of concern it provides for different personas within a team or organization. Rounding out the release are improved security measures, support for new managed resources, and the convergence on Packages as the installation unit for Crossplane extensions.
Experimental support for resource composition unlocks the ability for everyone to author and publish their own infrastructure recipes in a low/no-code way. More cloud services and Velero backup and restore compatibility round out this release!
This PR updates the Crossplane project governance to meet the following goals:
Increase diversity of maintainers, enable more organizations to collaborate and have ownership
Allow varying permissions and access across multiple repos and multiple maintainers
Improve change velocity by expanding number of maintainers that can approve and merge pull requests
Formalize responsibilities at the top level for the purpose of project stewardship, adoption, growth and health of the community, and strategic direction
