Breaking changes:

  • The NGINX server listening in port 18080 was removed. It was replaced by a server using an unix socket as port #3684
    This server was internal to the ingress controller. In case this was being acceded from the outside, you can restore the old server using the http-snipet feature in the configuration configmap like:

    http-snippet: |
      server {
        listen 18080;
        location /nginx_status {
          stub_status on;
        location / {
          return 404;


  • The annotation session-cookie-hash is deprecated and will be removed in 0.24.
  • Flag --force-namespace-isolation is deprecated and will be removed in 0.24. Currently, this annotation is being replaced by --watch-namespace
  • The authbind package is deprecated and will be removed in 0.25, using setcap to provide CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE capability required to bind privileged ports as a user. The reason for this is LD_PRELOAD does not work with Go binaries.
    (this means your docker storage driver must support xattr)
