Changelog since v1.23.0

Major Themes

Dockershim Removed from kubelet

After its deprecation in v1.20, the dockershim component has been removed from the kubelet. From v1.24 onwards, you will need to either use one of the other supported runtimes (such as containerd or CRI-O) or use cri-dockerd if you are relying on Docker Engine as your container runtime. For more information about ensuring your cluster is ready for this removal, please see this guide.

Beta APIs Off by Default

New beta APIs will not be enabled in clusters by default. Existing beta APIs and new versions of existing beta APIs, will continue to be enabled by default.

Signing Release Artifacts

Release artifacts are signed using cosign signatures and there is experimental support for verifying image signatures. Signing and verification of release artifacts is part of increasing software supply chain security for the Kubernetes release process.

OpenAPI v3

Kubernetes 1.24 offers beta support for publishing its APIs in the OpenAPI v3 format.

Storage Capacity and Volume Expansion Are Generally Available

Storage capacity tracking supports exposing currently available storage capacity via CSIStorageCapacity objects and enhances scheduling of pods that use CSI volumes with late binding.

Volume expansion adds support for resizing existing persistent volumes.

NonPreemptingPriority to Stable

This feature adds a new option to PriorityClasses, which can enable or disable pod preemption.

Storage Plugin Migration

There is work under way to migrate the internals of in-tree storage plugins to call out to CSI Plugins, while maintaining the original API. The Azure Disk and OpenStack Cinder plugins have both been migrated.

gRPC Probes Graduate to Beta

With Kubernetes 1.24, the gRPC probes functionality has entered beta and is available by default. You can now configure startup, liveness, and readiness probes for your gRPC app natively within Kubernetes, without exposing an HTTP endpoint or using an extra executable.

Kubelet Credential Provider Graduates to Beta

Originally released as Alpha in Kubernetes 1.20, the kubelet's support for image credential providers has now graduated to Beta. This allows the kubelet to dynamically retrieve credentials for a container image registry using exec plugins, rather than storing credentials on the node's filesystem.

Contextual Logging in Alpha

Kubernetes 1.24 has introduced contextual logging that enables the caller of a function to control all aspects of logging (output formatting, verbosity, additional values and names).

Avoiding Collisions in IP allocation to Services

Kubernetes 1.24 introduced a new opt-in feature that allows you to soft-reserve a range for static IP address assignments to Services. With the manual enablement of this feature, the cluster will prefer automatic assignment from the pool of Service IP addresses thereby reducing the risk of collision.

A Service ClusterIP can be assigned:

  • dynamically, which means the cluster will automatically pick a free IP within the configured Service IP range.
  • statically, which means the user will set one IP within the configured Service IP range.

Service ClusterIP are unique, hence, trying to create a Service with a ClusterIP that has already been allocated will return an error.

Urgent Upgrade Notes

(No, really, you MUST read this before you upgrade)

  • Docker runtime support using dockershim in the kubelet is now completely removed in 1.24. The kubelet used to have a module called dockershim, which implements CRI support for Docker, and it has seen maintenance issues in the Kubernetes community. From 1.24 onwards, please move to a container runtime that is a full-fledged implementation of CRI (v1alpha1 or v1 compliant) as they become available. (#97252, @dims)
  • Fixed bug with leads to Node goes Not-ready state when credentials for vCenter stored in a secret and Zones feature is in use. Zone labels setup moved to KCM component, kubelet skips this step during startup in such case. If credentials stored in cloud-provider config file as plaintext current behaviour does not change and no action required. For proper functioning kube-system:vsphere-legacy-cloud-provider should be allowed to update node object if vCenter credentials stored in secret and Zone feature used. (#101028, @lobziik)
  • The LegacyServiceAccountTokenNoAutoGeneration feature gate is beta, and enabled by default. When enabled, Secret API objects containing service account tokens are no longer auto-generated for every ServiceAccount. Use the TokenRequest API to acquire service account tokens, or if a non-expiring token is required, create a Secret API object for the token controller to populate with a service account token by following this guide. (#108309, @zshihang)
  • The calculations for Pod topology spread skew now exclude nodes that don't match the node affinity/selector. This may lead to unschedulable pods if you previously had pods matching the spreading selector on those excluded nodes (not matching the node affinity/selector), especially when the topologyKey is not node-level. Revisit the node affinity and/or pod selector in the topology spread constraints to avoid this scenario. (#107009, @kerthcet)
  • Remove the deprecated flag --experimental-check-node-capabilities-before-mount. With CSI now GA, there is a better alternative. Remove any use of --experimental-check-node-capabilities-before-mount from your kubelet scripts or manifests. (#104732, @mengjiao-liu)
  • kubeadm.k8s.io/v1beta2 has been deprecated and will be removed in a future release, possibly in 3 releases (one year). You should start using kubeadm.k8s.io/v1beta3 for new clusters. To migrate your old configuration files on disk you can use the kubeadm config migrate command. (#107013, @pacoxu)
  • Kubeadm: default the kubeadm configuration to the containerd socket (Unix: unix:///var/run/containerd/containerd.sock, Windows: npipe:////./pipe/containerd-containerd) instead of the one for Docker. If the Init|JoinConfiguration.nodeRegistration.criSocket field is empty during cluster creation and multiple sockets are found on the host always throw an error and ask the user to specify which one to use by setting the value in the field. Make sure you update any kubeadm configuration files on disk, to not include the dockershim socket unless you are still using kubelet version < 1.24 with kubeadm >= 1.24. Remove the DockerValidor and ServiceCheck for the docker service from kubeadm preflight. Docker is no longer special cased during host validation and ideally this task should be done in the now external cri-dockerd project where the importance of the compatibility matters. Use crictl for all communication with CRI sockets for actions like pulling images and obtaining a list of running containers instead of using the docker CLI in the case of Docker. (#107317, @neolit123)
  • The feature gate was mentioned as csiMigrationRBD where it should have been CSIMigrationRBD to be in parity with other migration plugins. This release correct the same and keep it as CSIMigrationRBD. users who have configured this feature gate as csiMigrationRBD has to reconfigure the same to CSIMigrationRBD from this release. (#107554, @humblec)
  • The experimental dynamic log sanitization feature has been deprecated and removed in the 1.24 release. The feature is no longer available for use. (#107207, @ehashman)
  • Kubeadm: apply second stage of the plan to migrate kubeadm away from the usage of the word master in labels and taints. For new clusters, the label node-role.kubernetes.io/master will no longer be added to control plane nodes, only the label node-role.kubernetes.io/control-plane will be added. For clusters that are being upgraded to 1.24 with kubeadm upgrade apply, the command will remove the label node-role.kubernetes.io/master from existing control plane nodes. For new clusters, both the old taint node-role.kubernetes.io/master:NoSchedule and new taint node-role.kubernetes.io/control-plane:NoSchedule will be added to control plane nodes. In release 1.20 (first stage), a release note instructed to preemptively tolerate the new taint. For clusters that are being upgraded to 1.24 with kubeadm upgrade apply, the command will add the new taint node-role.kubernetes.io/control-plane:NoSchedule to existing control plane nodes. Please adapt your infrastructure to these changes. In 1.25 the old taint node-role.kubernetes.io/master:NoSchedule will be removed. (#107533, @neolit123)
  • The feature gate was mentioned as csiMigrationRBD where it should have been CSIMigrationRBD to be in parity with other migration plugins. This release correct the same and keep it as CSIMigrationRBD. users who have configured this feature gate as csiMigrationRBD has to reconfigure the same to CSIMigrationRBD from this release. (#107554, @humblec)

Changes by Kind


  • Deprecated Service.Spec.LoadBalancerIP. This field was under-specified and its meaning varies across implementations. As of Kubernetes v1.24, users are encouraged to use implementation-specific annotations when available. This field may be removed in a future API version. (#107235, @uablrek)

  • Kube-apiserver: the --master-count flag and --endpoint-reconciler-type=master-count reconciler are deprecated in favor of the lease reconciler (#108062, @aojea)

  • Kube-apiserver: the insecure address flags --address, --insecure-bind-address, --port and --insecure-port (inert since 1.20) are removed (#106859, @knight42)

  • Kubeadm: graduated the UnversionedKubeletConfigMap feature gate to Beta and enabled the feature by default. This implies that 1) for new clusters kubeadm will start using the kube-system/kubelet-config naming scheme for the kubelet ConfigMap and RBAC rules, instead of the legacy kubelet-config-x.yy naming. 2) during upgrade, kubeadm will only write the new scheme ConfigMap and RBAC objects. To disable the feature you can pass UnversionedKubeletConfigMap: false in the kubeadm config for new clusters. For upgrade on existing clusters you can also override the behavior by patching the ClusterConfiguration object in kube-system/kubeadm-config. More details in the associated KEP. (#108027, @neolit123)

  • Remove tolerate-unready-endpoints annotation in Service deprecated from 1.11, use Service.spec.publishNotReadyAddresses instead. (#108020, @tossmilestone)

  • Remove deprecated feature gates ValidateProxyRedirects and StreamingProxyRedirects (#106830, @pacoxu)

  • Remove insecure serving configuration from cloud-provider package, which is consumed by cloud-controller-managers. (#108953, @nckturner)

  • The --pod-infra-container-image kubelet flag is deprecated and will be removed in future releases (#108045, @hakman)

  • The client.authentication.k8s.io/v1alpha1 ExecCredential has been removed. If you are using a client-go credential plugin that relies on the v1alpha1 API please contact the distributor of your plugin for instructions on how to migrate to the v1 API. (#108616, @margocrawf)

  • The node.k8s.io/v1alpha1 RuntimeClass API is no longer served. Use the node.k8s.io/v1 API version, available since v1.20 (#103061, @SergeyKanzhelev)

  • The cluster addon for dashboard was removed. To install dashboard, see here. (#107481, @shu-mutou)

  • The in-tree Azure plugin has been deprecated. The Azure kubelogin plugin serves as an out-of-tree replacement via the kubectl/client-go credential plugin mechanism. Users will now see a warning in the logs regarding this deprecation. (#107904, @sabbey37)

  • The insecure address flags --address and --port in kube-controller-manager have had no effect since v1.20 and are removed in v1.24. (#106860, @knight42)

  • The metadata.clusterName field is deprecated. This field has always been unwritable and always blank, but its presence is confusing, so we will remove it next release. Out of an abundance of caution, this release we have merely changed the name in the go struct to ensure any accidental client uses are found before complete removal. (#108717, @lavalamp)

  • VSphere releases less than 7.0u2 are deprecated as of v1.24. Please consider upgrading vSphere to 7.0u2 or above. vSphere CSI Driver requires minimum vSphere 7.0u2.

    General Support for vSphere 6.7 will end on October 15, 2022. vSphere 6.7 Update 3 is deprecated in Kubernetes v1.24. Customers are recommended to upgrade vSphere (both ESXi and vCenter) to 7.0u2 or above. vSphere CSI Driver 2.2.3 and higher supports CSI Migration.

    Support for these deprecations will be available till October 15, 2022. (#109089, @deepakkinni)

API Change

  • Add 2 new options for kube-proxy running in winkernel mode. --forward-healthcheck-vip, if specified as true, health check traffic whose destination is service VIP will be forwarded to kube-proxy's healthcheck service. --root-hnsendpoint-name specifies the name of the hns endpoint for the root network namespace. This option enables the pass-through load balancers like Google's GCLB to correctly health check the backend services. Without this change, the health check packets is dropped, and Windows node will be considered to be unhealthy by those load balancers. (#99287, @anfernee)
  • Added CEL runtime cost calculation into CustomerResource validation. CustomerResource validation will fail if runtime cost exceeds the budget. (#108482, @cici37)
  • Added a new metric webhook_fail_open_count to monitor webhooks that fail to open. (#107171, @ltagliamonte-dd)
  • Adds a new Status subresource in Network Policy objects (#107963, @rikatz)
  • Adds support for InterfaceNamePrefix and BridgeInterface as arguments to --detect-local-mode option and also introduces a new optional --pod-interface-name-prefix and --pod-bridge-interface flags to kube-proxy. (#95400, @tssurya)
  • CEL CRD validation expressions may now reference existing object state using the identifier oldSelf. (#108073, @benluddy)
  • CRD deep copies should no longer contain shallow copies of JSONSchemaProps.XValidations. (#107956, @benluddy)
  • CRD writes will generate validation errors if a CEL validation rule references the identifier oldSelf on a part of the schema that does not support it. (#108013, @benluddy)
  • CSIStorageCapacity.storage.k8s.io: The v1beta1 version of this API is deprecated in favor of v1, and will be removed in v1.27. If a CSI driver supports storage capacity tracking, then it must get deployed with a release of external-provisioner that supports the v1 API. (#108445, @pohly)
  • Custom resource requests with fieldValidation=Strict consistently require apiVersion and kind, matching non-strict requests (#109019, @liggitt)
  • Feature of DefaultPodTopologySpread is graduated to GA (#108278, @kerthcet)
  • Feature of NonPreemptingPriority is graduated to GA (#107432, @denkensk)
  • Feature of PodOverhead is graduated to GA (#108441, @pacoxu)
  • Fixed OpenAPI serialization of the x-kubernetes-validations field (#107970, @liggitt)
  • Fixed failed flushing logs in defer function when kubelet cmd exit 1. (#104774, @kerthcet)
  • Fixes a regression in v1beta1 PodDisruptionBudget handling of strategic merge patch-type API requests for the selector field. Prior to 1.21, these requests would merge matchLabels content and replace matchExpressions content. In 1.21, patch requests touching the selector field started replacing the entire selector. This is consistent with server-side apply and the v1 PodDisruptionBudget behavior, but should not have been changed for v1beta1. (#108138, @liggitt)
  • Improve kubectl's user help commands readability (#104736, @lauchokyip)
  • Indexed Jobs graduated to stable. (#107395, @alculquicondor)
  • Introduce a v1alpha1 networking API for ClusterCIDRConfig (#108290, @sarveshr7)
  • Introduction of a new "sync_proxy_rules_no_local_endpoints_total" proxy metric. This metric represents the number of services with no internal endpoints. The "traffic_policy" label will contain both "internal" or "external". (#108930, @MaxRenaud)
  • JobReadyPods graduates to Beta and it's enabled by default. (#107476, @alculquicondor)
  • Kube-apiserver: --audit-log-version and --audit-webhook-version now only support the default value of audit.k8s.io/v1. The v1alpha1 and v1beta1 audit log versions, deprecated since 1.13, have been removed. (#108092, @carlory)
  • Kube-apiserver: the metadata.selfLink field can no longer be populated by kube-apiserver; it was deprecated in 1.16 and has not been populated by default since 1.20+. (#107527, @wojtek-t)
  • Kubelet external Credential Provider feature is moved to Beta. Credential Provider Plugin and Credential Provider Config API's updated from v1alpha1 to v1beta1 with no API changes. (#108847, @adisky)
  • Make STS available replicas optional again. (#109241, @ravisantoshgudimetla)
  • MaxUnavailable for StatefulSets, allows faster RollingUpdate by taking down more than 1 pod at a time. The number of pods you want to take down during a RollingUpdate is configurable using maxUnavailable parameter. (#82162, @krmayankk)
  • Non-graceful node shutdown handling is enabled for stateful workload failovers (#108486, @sonasingh46)
  • Omit enum declarations from the static openapi file captured at https://git.k8s.io/kubernetes/api/openapi-spec. This file is used to generate API clients, and use of enums in those generated clients (rather than strings) can break forward compatibility with additional future values in those fields.

    something``` ([#107796](https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/pull/107796), [@alexanderConstantinescu](https://github.com/alexanderConstantinescu))
  • Added completion for kubectl config set-context. (#106739, @kebe7jun)

  • Added field add_ambient_capabilities to the Capabilities message in the CRI-API. (#104620, @vinayakankugoyal)

  • Added label selector flag to all kubectl rollout commands. (#99758, @aramperes)

  • Added more message for no PodSandbox container. (#107116, @yxxhero)

  • Added prune flag into diff command to simulate apply --prune. (#105164, @ardaguclu)

  • Added support for btrfs resizing (#108561, @RomanBednar)

  • Added support for kubectl commands (kubectl exec and kubectl port-forward) via a SOCKS5 proxy. (#105632, @xens)

  • Adds OpenAPIV3SchemaInterface to DiscoveryClient and its variants for fetching OpenAPI v3 schema documents. (#108992, @alexzielenski)

  • Allow kubectl to manage resources by filename patterns without the shell expanding it first (#102265, @danielrodriguez)

  • An alpha flag --subresource is added to get, patch, edit replace kubectl commands to fetch and update status and scale subresources. (#99556, @nikhita)

  • Apiextensions_openapi_v3_regeneration_count metric (alpha) will be emitted for OpenAPI V3. (#109128, @Jefftree)

  • Apply ProxyTerminatingEndpoints to all traffic policies (external, internal, cluster, local). (#108691, @andrewsykim)

  • CEL regex patterns in x-kubernetes-valiation rules are compiled when CRDs are created/updated if the pattern is provided as a string constant in the expression. Any regex compile errors are reported as a CRD create/update validation error. (#108617, @jpbetz)

  • CRD x-kubernetes-validations rules now support the CEL functions: isSorted, sum, min, max, indexOf, lastIndexOf, find and findAll. (#108312, @jpbetz)

  • Changes the kubectl --validate flag from a bool to a string that accepts the values {true, strict, warn, false, ignore}

    • true/strict - perform validation and error the request on any invalid fields in the ojbect. It will attempt to perform server-side validation if it is enabled on the apiserver, otherwise it will fall back to client-side validation.
    • warn - perform server-side validation and warn on any invalid fields (but ultimately let the request succeed by dropping any invalid fields from the object). If validation is not available on the server, perform no validation.
    • false/ignore - perform no validation, silently dropping invalid fields from the object. (#108350, @kevindelgado)
  • Client-go metrics: change bucket distribution for rest_client_request_duration_seconds and rest_client_rate_limiter_duration_seconds from [0.001, 0.002, 0.004, 0.008, 0.016, 0.032, 0.064, 0.128, 0.256, 0.512] to [0.005, 0.025, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, 8.0, 15.0, 30.0, 60.0}] (#106911, @aojea)

  • Client-go: add new histogram metric to record the size of the requests and responses. (#108296, @aojea)

  • CycleState is now optimized for "write once and read many times". (#108724, @sanposhiho)

  • Enabled beta feature HonorPVReclaimPolicy by default. (#109035, @deepakkinni)

  • Env var for additional cli flags used in the csi-proxy binary when a Windows nodepool is created with kube-up.sh (#107806, @mauriciopoppe)

  • Feature of PreferNominatedNode is graduated to GA. (#106619, @chendave)

  • In text format, log messages that previously used quoting to prevent multi-line output (for example, text="some "quotation", a\nline break") will now be printed with more readable multi-line output without the escape sequences. (#107103, @pohly)

  • Increase default value of discovery cache TTL for kubectl to 6 hours. (#107141, @mk46)

  • Introduce policy to allow the HPA to consume the external.metrics.k8s.io API group. (#104244, @dgrisonnet)

  • Kube-apiserver: Subresources such as status and scale now support tabular output content types. (#103516, @ykakarap)

  • Kube-apiserver: when merging lists, Server Side Apply now prefers the order of the submitted request instead of the existing persisted object. (#107565, @jiahuif)

  • Kubeadm: added support for dry running kubeadm reset. The new flag kubeadm reset --dry-run is similar to the existing flag for kubeadm init/join/upgrade and allows you to see what changes would be applied. (#107512, @SataQiu)

  • Kubeadm: added the flag --experimental-initial-corrupt-check to etcd static Pod manifests to ensure etcd member data consistency (#109074, @neolit123)

  • Kubeadm: better surface errors during kubeadm upgrade when waiting for the kubelet to restart static pods on control plane nodes (#108315, @Monokaix)

  • Kubeadm: improve the strict parsing of user YAML/JSON configuration files. Next to printing warnings for unknown and duplicate fields (current state), also print warnings for fields with incorrect case sensitivity - e.g. controlPlaneEndpoint (valid), ControlPlaneEndpoint (invalid). Instead of only printing warnings during init and join also print warnings when downloading the ClusterConfiguration, KubeletConfiguration or KubeProxyConfiguration objects from the cluster. This can be useful if the user has patched these objects in their respective ConfigMaps with mistakes. (#107725, @neolit123)

  • Kubectl now supports shell completion for the / format for specifying resources. kubectl now provides shell completion for container names following the --container/-c flag of the exec command. kubectl's shell completion now suggests resource types for commands that only apply to pods. (#108493, @marckhouzam)

  • Kubelet: add kubelet_volume_metric_collection_duration_seconds metrics for volume disk usage calculation duration (#107201, @pacoxu)

  • Kubelet: the following dockershim related flags are also removed along with dockershim --experimental-dockershim-root-directory, --docker-endpoint, --image-pull-progress-deadline, --network-plugin, --cni-conf-dir, --cni-bin-dir, --cni-cache-dir, --network-plugin-mtu. (#106907, @cyclinder)

  • Kubernetes 1.24 bumped version of golang it is compiled with to go1.18, which introduced significant changes to its garbage collection algorithm. As a result, we observed an increase in memory usage for kube-apiserver in larger an heavily loaded clusters up to ~25% (with the benefit of API call latencies drop by up to 10x on 99th percentiles). If the memory increase is not acceptable for you you can mitigate by setting GOGC env variable (for our tests using GOGC=63 brings memory usage back to original value, although the exact value may depend on usage patterns on your cluster). (#108870, @dims)

  • Kubernetes 1.24 is built with go1.18, which will no longer validate certificates signed with a SHA-1 hash algorithm by default. See https://golang.org/doc/go1.18#sha1 for more details. If you are using certificates like this in admission or conversion (#109024, @stlaz)

  • Moving MixedProtocolLBService from alpha to beta (#109213, @bridgetkromhout)

  • New "field_validation_request_duration_seconds" metric, measures how long requests take, indicating the value of the fieldValidation query parameter and whether or not server-side field validation is enabled on the apiserver (#109120, @kevindelgado)

  • New feature gate, ServiceIPStaticSubrange, to enable the new strategy in the Service IP allocators, so the IP range is subdivided and dynamic allocated ClusterIP addresses for Services are allocated preferently from the upper range. (#106792, @aojea)

  • No (#108432, @iXinqi) [SIG Testing and Windows]

  • OpenAPI definitions served by kube-apiserver now include enum types by default. (#108898, @jiahuif)

  • Set PodMaxUnschedulableQDuration as 5 min. (#108761, @denkensk)

  • Support in-tree PV deletion protection finalizer. (#108400, @deepakkinni)

  • The .spec.loadBalancerClass field for Services is now generally available. (#107979, @XudongLiuHarold)

  • The NamespaceDefaultLabelName feature gate, GA since v1.22, is now removed. (#106838, @mengjiao-liu)

  • The kubectl logs will now warn and default to the first container in a pod. This new behavior brings it in line with kubectl exec. (#105964, @kidlj)

  • The v1 version of LeaderMigrationConfiguration supports only leases API for leader election. To use formerly supported mechanisms, please continue using v1beta1. (#108016, @jiahuif)

  • The kubelet now creates an iptables chain named KUBE-IPTABLES-HINT in the mangle table. Containerized components that need to modify iptables rules in the host network namespace can use the existence of this chain to more-reliably determine whether the system is using iptables-legacy or iptables-nft. (#109059, @danwinship)

  • The output of kubectl describe ingress now includes an IngressClass name if available. (#107921, @mpuckett159)

  • The scheduler prints info logs when the extender returned an error. (--v>5) (#107974, @sanposhiho)

  • The script cluster/gce/gci/configure.sh now supports downloading crictl on ARM64 nodes (#108034, @tstapler)

  • When invoked with -list-images, the e2e.test binary now also lists the images that might be needed for storage tests. (#108458, @pohly)

  • kubectl config delete-user now supports completion (#107142, @dimbleby)

  • kubectl create token can now be used to request a service account token, and permission to request service account tokens is added to the edit and admin RBAC roles (#107880, @liggitt)

  • kubectl version now includes information on the embedded version of Kustomize (#108817, @KnVerey)

  • Kube-apiserver: ensures the namespace of objects sent to admission webhooks matches the request namespace. Previously, objects without a namespace set would have the request namespace populated after mutating admission, and objects with a namespace that did not match the request namespace would be rejected after admission. (#94637, @liggitt)
  • Kube-apiserver: removed apf_fd from server logs which could contain data identifying the requesting user (#108631, @jupblb)
  • Kube-proxy in iptables mode now only logs the full iptables input at -v=9 rather than -v=5. (#108224, @danwinship)
  • Kube-proxy will no longer hold service node ports open on the node. Users are still advised not to run any listener on node ports range used by kube-proxy. (#108496, @khenidak)
  • Kubeadm: allow the certs check-expiration command to not require the existence of the cluster CA key (ca.key file) when checking the expiration of managed certificates in kubeconfig files. (#106854, @neolit123)
  • Kubeadm: during execution of the certs check-expiration command, treat the etcd CA as external if there is a missing etcd CA key file (etcd/ca.key) and perform the proper validation on certificates signed by the etcd CA. Additionally, make sure that the CA for all entries in the output table is included - for both certificates on disk and in kubeconfig files. (#106891, @neolit123)

  • Metrics Server image bumped to v0.5.2 (#106492, @serathius)
  • Modified command line errors (for example, kubectl list -> unknown command) that were printed as log message with escaped line breaks instead of a multi-line plain text, making the error hard to read. (#107044, @pohly)
  • Modified log messages that were logged with "v":0 in JSON output although they were debug messages with a higher verbosity. (#106978, @pohly)
  • No (#107769, @liurupeng) [SIG Cloud Provider and Windows]

  • Print <default> as the value in case kubectl describe ingress shows default-backend:80 when no default backend is present (#108506, @jlsong01)
  • Publishing kube-proxy metrics for Windows kernel-mode (#106581, @knabben)
  • Re-adds response status and headers on verbose kubectl responses (#108505, @rikatz)
  • Record requests rejected with 429 in the apiserver_request_total metric (#108927, @wojtek-t)
  • Removed validation if AppArmor profiles are loaded on the local node. This should be handled by the container runtime. (#97966, @saschagrunert)
  • Replace the url label of rest_client_request_duration_seconds and rest_client_rate_limiter_duration_seconds metrics with a host label to prevent cardinality explosions and keep only the useful information. This is a breaking change required for security reasons. (#106539, @dgrisonnet)
  • Restored NumPDBViolations info of nodes, when HTTPExtender ProcessPreemption. This info will be used in subsequent filtering steps - pickOneNodeForPreemption (#105853, @caden2016)
  • Reverted graceful node shutdown to match 1.21 behavior of setting pods that have not yet successfully completed to "Failed" phase if the GracefulNodeShutdown feature is enabled in kubelet. The GracefulNodeShutdown feature is beta and must be explicitly configured via kubelet config to be enabled in 1.21+. This changes 1.22 and 1.23 behavior on node shutdown to match 1.21. If you do not want pods to be marked terminated on node shutdown in 1.22 and 1.23, disable the GracefulNodeShutdown feature. (#106901, @bobbypage)
  • Reverts the CRI API version surfaced by dockershim to v1alpha2 (#106803, @saschagrunert)
  • Services with "internalTrafficPolicy: Local" now behave more like "externalTrafficPolicy: Local". Also, "internalTrafficPolicy: Local, externalTrafficPolicy: Cluster" is now implemented correctly. (#106497, @danwinship)
  • Sets JobTrackingWithFinalizers, a beta feature, as disabled by default, due to unresolved bug https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/issues/109485 (#109487, @alculquicondor)
  • Skip re-allocate logic if pod is already removed to avoid panic (#108831, @waynepeking348)
  • The Service field spec.internalTrafficPolicy is no longer defaulted for Services when the type is ExternalName. The field is also dropped on read when the Service type is ExternalName. (#104846, @andrewsykim)
  • The ServerSideFieldValidation feature has been reverted to alpha for 1.24. (#109271, @liggitt)
  • The TopologyAwareHints feature gate is now enabled by default. This will allow users to opt-in to Topology Aware Hints by setting the service.kubernetes.io/topology-aware-hints on a Service. This will not affect any Services without that annotation set. (#108747, @robscott)
  • The deprecated flag --really-crash-for-testing was removed. (#101719, @SergeyKanzhelev)
  • The kubelet no longer forcefully closes active connections on heartbeat failures, using the HTTP2 health check mechanism to detect broken connections. Users can force the previous behavior of the kubelet by setting the environment variable DISABLE_HTTP2. (#108107, @aojea)
  • This code change fixes the bug that UDP services would trigger unnecessary LoadBalancer updates. The root cause is that a field not working for non-TCP protocols is considered. ref: https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/cloud-provider-azure/pull/1090 (#107981, @lzhecheng)
  • Topology translation of in-tree vSphere volume to vSphere CSI. (#108611, @divyenpatel)
  • Updating kubelet permissions check for Windows nodes to see if process is elevated instead of checking if process owner is in Administrators group (#108146, @marosset)
  • apiserver, if configured to reconcile the kubernetes.default service endpoints, checks if the configured Service IP range matches the apiserver public address IP family, and fails to start if not. (#106721, @aojea)
  • kubectl version now fails when given extra arguments. (#107967, @jlsong01)

Other (Cleanup or Flake)

  • 'build/dependencies.yaml: remove the dependency on Docker. With the dockershim removal, core Kubernetes no longer has to track the latest validated version of Docker.' (#107607, @neolit123)
  • API server's deprecated --experimental-encryption-provider-config flag is now removed. Adapt your machinery to use the --encryption-provider-config flag that is available since v1.13. (#108423, @ialidzhikov)
  • API server's deprecated --target-ram-mb flag is now removed. (#108457, @ialidzhikov)
  • Added PreemptionPolicy in PriorityClass describe (#108701, @denkensk)
  • Added an e2e test to verify that the cluster is not vulnerable to CVE-2021-29923 when using Services with IPs with leading zeros, note that this test is a necessary but not sufficient condition, all the components in the clusters that consume IPs addresses from the APIs MUST interpret them as decimal or discard them. (#107552, @aojea)
  • Added an example for the kubectl plugin list command. (#106600, @bergerhoffer)
  • Added details about preemption in the event for scheduling failed. (#107775, @denkensk)
  • Allow KUBE_TEST_REPO_LIST to be a remote url (#108429, @dims)
  • Client-go: if resetting the body fails before a retry, an error is now surfaced to the user. (#109050, @MadhavJivrajani)
  • Deprecate apiserver_dropped_requests_total metric. The same data can be read from apiserver_request_terminations_total metric. (#109018, @wojtek-t)
  • Deprecated types in k8s.io/apimachinery/util/clock. Please use k8s.io/utils/clock instead. (#106850, @MadhavJivrajani)
  • E2e tests wait for kube-root-ca.crt to be populated in namespaces for use with projected service account tokens, reducing delays starting those test pods and errors in the logs. (#107763, @smarterclayton)
  • Endpoints and EndpointSlice controllers no longer populate resourceVersion of targetRef in Endpoints and EndpointSlices (#108450, @tnqn)
  • Fixed default config flags for NewDefaultKubectlCommand. (#107131, @jonnylangefeld)
  • Fixed documentation typo in cloud-provider. (#106445, @majst01)
  • Fixed spelling of implemented in pkg/proxy/apis/config/types.go line 206 (#106453, @davidleitw)
  • Improve error message when applying CRDs before the CRD exists in a cluster (#107363, @eddiezane)
  • Improved algorithm for selecting best non-preferred hint in the TopologyManager (#108154, @klueska)
  • Kube-proxy doesn't set the sysctl net.ipv4.conf.all.route_localnet=1 if no IPv4 loopback address is selected by the nodePortAddresses configuration parameter. (#107684, @aojea)
  • Kubeadm: all warning messages are printed to stderr instead of stdout. (#107467, @SataQiu)
  • Kubeadm: handled the removal of dockershim related flags for new kubeadm clusters. If kubelet <1.24 is on the host, kubeadm >=1.24 can continue using the built-in dockershim in the kubelet if the user passes the {Init|Join}Configuration.nodeRegistration.criSocket value in the kubeadm configuration to be equal to unix:///var/run/dockershim.sock on Unix or npipe:////./pipe/dockershim on Windows. If kubelet version >=1.24 is on the host, kubeadm >=1.24 will treat all container runtimes as "remote" using the kubelet flags --container-runtime=remote --container-runtime-endpoint=scheme://some/path. The special management for kubelet <1.24 will be removed in kubeadm 1.25. (#106973, @neolit123)
  • Kubeadm: make sure that kubeadm init/join always use a URL scheme (unix:// on Linux and npipe:// on Windows) when passing a value to the --container-runtime-endpoint kubelet flag. This flag's value is taken from the kubeadm configuration criSocket field or the --cri-socket CLI flag. Automatically add a missing URL scheme to the user configuration in memory, but warn them that they should also update their configuration on disk manually. During kubeadm upgrade apply/node mutate the /var/lib/kubelet/kubeadm-flags.env file on disk and the kubeadm.alpha.kubernetes.io/cri-socket annotation Node object if needed. These automatic actions are temporary and will be removed in a future release. In the future the kubelet may not support CRI endpoints without an URL scheme. (#107295, @neolit123)
  • Kubeadm: remove the IPv6DualStack feature gate. The feature has been GA and locked to enabled since 1.23. (#106648, @calvin0327)
  • Kubeadm: removed the deprecated output/v1alpha1 API used for machine readable output by some kubeadm commands. In 1.23 kubeadm started using the newer version output/v1alpha2 for the same purpose. (#107468, @neolit123)
  • Kubeadm: removed the restriction that the ca.crt can only contain one certificate. If there is more than one certificate in the ca.crt file, kubeadm will pick the first one by default. (#107327, @SataQiu)
  • Kubectl stack traces now only print at verbose -v=99 and not -v=6 (#108053, @eddiezane)
  • Kubectl: restored --dry-run, --dry-run=true, and --dry-run=false for compatibility with pre-1.23 invocations. (#107003, @julianvmodesto)
  • Kubelet config validation error messages are updated. (#105360, @shuheiktgw)
  • Kubernetes e2e framework will use the url invalid.registry.k8s.io/invalid instead invalid.com/invalid for test that use an invalid registry. (#107455, @aojea)
  • Marked kubelet --container-runtime-endpoint and --image-service-endpoint CLI flags as stable. (#106954, @saschagrunert)
  • Migrate volume/csi/csi-client.go logs to structured logging. (#99441, @CKchen0726)
  • Migrate statefulset files to structured logging (#106109, @h4ghhh)

  • ServerResources was deprecated in February 2019 (https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/commit/618050e) and now it's being removed and ServerGroupsAndResources is suggested to be used instead (#107180, @ardaguclu)
  • The API server's deprecated --deserialization-cache-size flag is now removed. (#108448, @ialidzhikov)
  • The --container-runtime kubelet flag is deprecated and will be removed in future releases. (#107094, @adisky)
  • The WarningHeaders feature gate that is GA since v1.22 is unconditionally enabled, and can no longer be specified via the --feature-gates argument. (#108394, @ialidzhikov)
  • The e2e.test binary supports a new --kubelet-root parameter to override the default /var/lib/kubelet path. CSI storage tests use this. (#108253, @pohly)
  • The fluentd-elasticsearch addon is no longer included in the cluster directory. It is available from https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/instrumentation-addons/tree/master/fluentd-elasticsearch. (#107553, @liggitt)
