Helm v3.9.0 is a feature release. This release, we focused on . Users are encouraged to upgrade for the best experience.

The community keeps growing, and we'd love to see you there!

  • Join the discussion in Kubernetes Slack:
    • for questions and just to hang out
    • for discussing PRs, code, and bugs
  • Hang out at the Public Developer Call: Thursday, 9:30 Pacific via Zoom
  • Test, debug, and contribute charts: ArtifactHub/packages

Notable Changes

  • Added a --quiet flag to helm lint
  • Added a --post-renderer-args flag to support arguments being passed to the post renderer
  • Added more checks during the signing process
  • Updated to add Kubernetes 1.24 support

Note, the Helm SDK exposes the Factory interface from kubectl as part of the Helm kube package. Kubernetes does not follow semantic versioning and minor releases make breaking changes. Helm 3.9.0 updated its use of Kubernetes packages and that included a breaking change to Factory, as defined by the Go stance on interfaces. As this is a Kubernetes API, Helm is unable to include it in its compatibility guarantee.
