Changelog since v1.8.0

Action Required

  • PodSecurityPolicy: Fixes a compatibility issue that caused policies that previously allowed privileged pods to start forbidding them, due to an incorrect default value for allowPrivilegeEscalation. PodSecurityPolicy objects defined using a 1.8.0 client or server that intended to set allowPrivilegeEscalation to false must be reapplied after upgrading to 1.8.1. (#53443, @liggitt)

Other notable changes

  • Fix to prevent downward api change break on older versions (#53673, @timothysc)
  • Ignore extended resources that are not registered with kubelet during container resource allocation. (#53547, @jiayingz)
  • GCE: Bump GLBC version to 0.9.7. (#53625, @nikhiljindal)
  • kubeadm 1.8 now properly handles upgrades from to 1.7.x to newer release in 1.7 branch (#53338, @kad)
  • Add and to to easily run generators against CRD or User API Server types. (#52186, @sttts)
  • Don't remove extended resource capacities that are not registered with kubelet from node status. (#53353, @jiayingz)
  • kubeadm allows the kubelets in the cluster to automatically renew their client certificates (#53252, @kad)
  • Bumped Heapster version to 1.4.3 - more details (#53377, @loburm)
  • Change kubeadm create token to default to the group that almost everyone will want to use. The group is system:bootstrappers:kubeadm:default-node-token and is the group that kubeadm sets up, via an RBAC binding, for auto-approval ( (#53512, @jbeda)
  • GCE: Fix issue deleting internal load balancers when the firewall resource may not exist. (#53450, @nicksardo)
  • GCE: Fixes ILB sync on legacy networks and auto networks with unique subnet names (#53410, @nicksardo)
  • Fix the bug that query Kubelet's stats summary with CRI stats enabled results in error. (#53107, @Random-Liu)
  • kubelet --cert-dir now defaults to /var/lib/kubelet/pki, in order to ensure bootstrapped and rotated certificates persist beyond a reboot. resolves an issue in kubeadm with false-positive /var/lib/kubelet is not empty message during pre-flight checks (#53317, @liggitt)
  • Fix permissions for Metrics Server. (#53330, @kawych)
  • Fixes a performance issue (#51899) identified in large-scale clusters when deleting thousands of pods simultaneously across hundreds of nodes, by actively removing containers of deleted pods, rather than waiting for periodic garbage collection and batching resulting pod API deletion requests. (#53233, @dashpole)
  • Fixes an issue with RBAC reconciliation that could cause duplicated subjects in some bootstrapped rolebindings on each restart of the API server. (#53239, @enj)
  • Change ImageGCManage to consume ImageFS stats from StatsProvider (#53094, @yguo0905)
  • Fixes an issue with kubectl set commands encountering conversion errors for ReplicaSet and DaemonSet objects (#53158, @liggitt)

Introduction to v1.8.0

Kubernetes version 1.8 includes new features and enhancements, as well as fixes to identified issues. The release notes contain a brief overview of the important changes introduced in this release. The content is organized by Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

For initial installations, see the Setup topics in the Kubernetes documentation.

To upgrade to this release from a previous version, take any actions required Before Upgrading.

For more information about the release and for the latest documentation, see the Kubernetes documentation.

Major Themes

Kubernetes is developed by community members whose work is organized into Special Interest Groups. For the 1.8 release, each SIG provides the themes that guided their work.

SIG API Machinery

SIG API Machinery is responsible for all aspects of the API server: API registration and discovery, generic API CRUD semantics, admission control, encoding/decoding, conversion, defaulting, persistence layer (etcd), OpenAPI, third-party resources, garbage collection, and client libraries.

For the 1.8 release, SIG API Machinery focused on stability and on ecosystem enablement. Features include the ability to break large LIST calls into smaller chunks, improved support for API server customization with either custom API servers or Custom Resource Definitions, and client side event spam filtering.

SIG Apps

SIG Apps focuses on the Kubernetes APIs and the external tools that are required to deploy and operate Kubernetes workloads.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Apps moved the Kubernetes workloads API to the new apps/v1beta2 group and version. The DaemonSet, Deployment, ReplicaSet, and StatefulSet objects are affected by this change. The new apps/v1beta2 group and version provide a stable and consistent API surface for building applications in Kubernetes. For details about deprecations and behavioral changes, see Notable Features. SIG Apps intends to promote this version to GA in a future release.

SIG Auth

SIG Auth is responsible for Kubernetes authentication and authorization, and for cluster security policies.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Auth focused on stablizing existing features that were introduced in previous releases. RBAC was moved from beta to v1, and advanced auditing was moved from alpha to beta. Encryption of resources stored on disk (resources at rest) remained in alpha, and the SIG began exploring integrations with external key management systems.

SIG Autoscaling

SIG Autoscaling is responsible for autoscaling-related components, such as the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler and Cluster Autoscaler.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Autoscaling continued to focus on stabilizing features introduced in previous releases: the new version of the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler API, which supports custom metrics, and the Cluster Autoscaler, which provides improved performance and error reporting.

SIG Cluster Lifecycle

SIG Cluster Lifecycle is responsible for the user experience of deploying, upgrading, and deleting clusters.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Cluster Lifecycle continued to focus on expanding the capabilities of kubeadm, which is both a user-facing tool to manage clusters and a building block for higher-level provisioning systems. Starting with the 1.8 release, kubeadm supports a new upgrade command and includes alpha support for self hosting the cluster control plane.

SIG Instrumentation

SIG Instrumentation is responsible for metrics production and collection.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Instrumentation focused on stabilizing the APIs and components that are required to support the new version of the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler API: the resource metrics API, custom metrics API, and metrics-server, which is the new replacement for Heapster in the default monitoring pipeline.

SIG Multi-cluster (formerly known as SIG Federation)

SIG Multi-cluster is responsible for infrastructure that supports the efficient and reliable management of multiple Kubernetes clusters, and applications that run in and across multiple clusters.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Multicluster focussed on expanding the set of Kubernetes primitives that our Cluster Federation control plane supports, expanding the number of approaches taken to multi-cluster management (beyond our initial Federation approach), and preparing to release Federation for general availability ('GA').

SIG Node

SIG Node is responsible for the components that support the controlled interactions between pods and host resources, and manage the lifecycle of pods scheduled on a node.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Node continued to focus on a broad set of workload types, including hardware and performance sensitive workloads such as data analytics and deep learning. The SIG also delivered incremental improvements to node reliability.

SIG Network

SIG Network is responsible for networking components, APIs, and plugins in Kubernetes.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Network enhanced the NetworkPolicy API to support pod egress traffic policies. The SIG also provided match criteria that allow policy rules to match a source or destination CIDR. Both features are in beta. SIG Network also improved the kube-proxy to include an alpha IPVS mode in addition to the current iptables and userspace modes.

SIG Scalability

SIG Scalability is responsible for scalability testing, measuring and improving system performance, and answering questions related to scalability.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Scalability focused on automating large cluster scalability testing in a continuous integration (CI) environment. The SIG defined a concrete process for scalability testing, created documentation for the current scalability thresholds, and defined a new set of Service Level Indicators (SLIs) and Service Level Objectives (SLOs) for the system. Here's the release scalability validation report.

SIG Scheduling

SIG Scheduling is responsible for generic scheduler and scheduling components.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Scheduling extended the concept of cluster sharing by introducing pod priority and pod preemption. These features allow mixing various types of workloads in a single cluster, and help reach higher levels of resource utilization and availability. These features are in alpha. SIG Scheduling also improved the internal APIs for scheduling and made them easier for other components and external schedulers to use.

SIG Storage

SIG Storage is responsible for storage and volume plugin components.

For the 1.8 release, SIG Storage extended the Kubernetes storage API. In addition to providing simple volume availability, the API now enables volume resizing and snapshotting. These features are in alpha. The SIG also focused on providing more control over storage: the ability to set requests and limits on ephemeral storage, the ability to specify mount options, more metrics, and improvements to Flex driver deployments.

Before Upgrading

Consider the following changes, limitations, and guidelines before you upgrade:

  • The kubelet now fails if swap is enabled on a node. To override the default and run with /proc/swaps on, set --fail-swap-on=false. The experimental flag --experimental-fail-swap-on is deprecated in this release, and will be removed in a future release.

  • The autoscaling/v2alpha1 API is now at autoscaling/v2beta1. However, the form of the API remains unchanged. Migrate the HorizontalPodAutoscaler resources to autoscaling/v2beta1 to persist the HorizontalPodAutoscaler changes introduced in autoscaling/v2alpha1. The Horizontal Pod Autoscaler changes include support for status conditions, and autoscaling on memory and custom metrics.

  • The metrics APIs, and metrics, were moved from v1alpha1 to v1beta1, and renamed to and, respectively. If you have deployed a custom metrics adapter, ensure that it supports the new API version. If you have deployed Heapster in aggregated API server mode, upgrade Heapster to support the latest API version.

  • Advanced auditing is the default auditing mechanism at v1beta1. The new version introduces the following changes:

    • The --audit-policy-file option is required if the AdvancedAuditing feature is not explicitly turned off (--feature-gates=AdvancedAuditing=false) on the API server.

    • The audit log file defaults to JSON encoding when using the advanced auditing feature gate.

    • An audit policy file without either an apiVersion or a kind field may be treated as invalid.

    • The webhook and log file now output the v1beta1 event format.

      For more details, see Advanced audit.

  • The deprecated ThirdPartyResource (TPR) API was removed. To avoid losing your TPR data, migrate to CustomResourceDefinition.

  • The following deprecated flags were removed from kube-controller-manager:

    • replication-controller-lookup-cache-size
    • replicaset-lookup-cache-size
    • daemonset-lookup-cache-size

    Don't use these flags. Using deprecated flags causes the server to print a warning. Using a removed flag causes the server to abort the startup.

  • The following deprecated flags were removed from kubelet:

    • api-servers - add apiserver addresses to the kubeconfig file instead.

    Don't use these flags. Using deprecated flags causes the kubelet to print a warning. Using a removed flag causes the kubelet to abort the startup.

  • StatefulSet: The deprecated annotation for interrupting the StatefulSet Pod management is now ignored. StatefulSets with this annotation set to true or with no value will behave just as they did in previous versions. Dormant StatefulSets with the annotation set to false will become active after upgrading.

  • The CronJob object is now enabled by default at v1beta1. CronJob v2alpha1 is still available, but it must be explicitly enabled. We recommend that you move any current CronJob objects to batch/v1beta1.CronJob. Be aware that if you specify the deprecated version, you may encounter Resource Not Found errors. These errors occur because the new controllers look for the new version during a rolling update.

  • The batch/v2alpha1.ScheduledJob was removed. Migrate to batch/v1beta.CronJob to continue managing time based jobs.

  • The rbac/v1alpha1, settings/v1alpha1, and scheduling/v1alpha1 APIs are disabled by default.

  • The system:node role is no longer automatically granted to the system:nodes group in new clusters. The role gives broad read access to resources, including secrets and configmaps. Use the Node authorization mode to authorize the nodes in new clusters. To continue providing the system:node role to the members of the system:nodes group, create an installation-specific ClusterRoleBinding in the installation. (#49638)

Known Issues

This section contains a list of known issues reported in Kubernetes 1.8 release. The content is populated via v1.8.x known issues and FAQ accumulator.

  • Kubelets using TLS bootstrapping (--bootstrap-kubeconfig) or certificate rotation (--rotate-certificates) store certificates in the directory specified by --cert-dir. The default location (/var/run/kubernetes) is automatically erased on reboot on some platforms, which can prevent the kubelet from authenticating to the API server after a reboot. Specifying a non-transient location, such as --cert-dir=/var/lib/kubelet/pki, is recommended.

For more information, see #53288.

  • kubeadm init and kubeadm join invocations on newly installed systems can encounter a /var/lib/kubelet is not empty message during pre-flight checks that prevents setup. If this is the only pre-flight failure, it can be safely ignored with --skip-preflight-checks.

For more information, see #53356.

  • A performance issue was identified in large-scale clusters when deleting thousands of pods simultaneously across hundreds of nodes. Kubelets in this scenario can encounter temporarily increased latency of delete pod API calls -- above the target service level objective of 1 second. If you run clusters with this usage pattern and if pod deletion latency could be an issue for you, you might want to wait until the issue is resolved before you upgrade.

For more information and for updates on resolution of this issue, see #51899.

  • Audit logs might impact the API server performance and the latency of large request and response calls. The issue is observed under the following conditions: if AdvancedAuditing feature gate is enabled, which is the default case, if audit logging uses the log backend in JSON format, or if the audit policy records large API calls for requests or responses.

For more information, see #51899.

  • Minikube version 0.22.2 or lower does not work with kubectl version 1.8 or higher. This issue is caused by the presence of an unregistered type in the minikube API server. New versions of kubectl force validate the OpenAPI schema, which is not registered with all known types in the minikube API server.

For more information, see #1996.

  • The ENABLE_APISERVER_BASIC_AUDIT configuration parameter for GCE deployments is broken, but deprecated.

For more information, see #53154.

  • kubectl set commands placed on ReplicaSet and DaemonSet occasionally return version errors. All set commands, including set image, set env, set resources, and set serviceaccounts, are affected.

For more information, see #53040.

  • Object quotas are not consistently charged or updated. Specifically, the object count quota does not reliably account for uninitialized objects. Some quotas are charged only when an object is initialized. Others are charged when an object is created, whether it is initialized or not. We plan to fix this issue in a future release.

For more information, see #53109.


This section provides an overview of deprecated API versions, options, flags, and arguments. Deprecated means that we intend to remove the capability from a future release. After removal, the capability will no longer work. The sections are organized by SIGs.


  • The .spec.rollbackTo field of the Deployment kind is deprecated in extensions/v1beta1.

  • The annotation is deprecated and will be removed in version 1.9. Use ControllerRef instead to determine which controller, if any, owns an object.

  • The batch/v2alpha1.CronJob is deprecated in favor of batch/v1beta1.

  • The batch/v2alpha1.ScheduledJob was removed. Use batch/v1beta1.CronJob instead.


  • The RBAC v1alpha1 API group is deprecated in favor of RBAC v1.

  • The API server flag --experimental-bootstrap-token-auth is deprecated in favor of --enable-bootstrap-token-auth. The --experimental-bootstrap-token-auth flag will be removed in version 1.9.


  • Consuming metrics directly from Heapster is deprecated in favor of consuming metrics via an aggregated version of the resource metrics API.

    • In version 1.8, enable this behavior by setting the --horizontal-pod-autoscaler-use-rest-clients flag to true.

    • In version 1.9, this behavior will be enabled by default, and must be explicitly disabled by setting the --horizontal-pod-autoscaler-use-rest-clients flag to false.

Cluster Lifecycle

  • The auto-detect behavior of the kubelet's --cloud-provider flag is deprecated.

    • In version 1.8, the default value for the kubelet's --cloud-provider flag is auto-detect. Be aware that it works only on GCE, AWS and Azure.

    • In version 1.9, the default will be "", which means no built-in cloud provider extension will be enabled by default.

    • Enable an out-of-tree cloud provider with --cloud-provider=external in either version.

      For more information on deprecating auto-detecting cloud providers in kubelet, see PR #51312 and announcement.

  • The PersistentVolumeLabel admission controller in the API server is deprecated.

    • The replacement is running a cloud-specific controller-manager (often referred to as cloud-controller-manager) with the PersistentVolumeLabel controller enabled. This new controller loop operates as the PersistentVolumeLabel admission controller did in previous versions.

    • Do not use the PersistentVolumeLabel admission controller in the configuration files and scripts unless you are dependent on the in-tree GCE and AWS cloud providers.

    • The PersistentVolumeLabel admission controller will be removed in a future release, when the out-of-tree versions of the GCE and AWS cloud providers move to GA. The cloud providers are marked alpha in version 1.9.


  • The openstack-heat provider for kube-up is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Refer to Issue #49213 for background information.


  • Opaque Integer Resources (OIRs) are deprecated and will be removed in version 1.9. Extended Resources (ERs) are a drop-in replacement for OIRs. You can use any domain name prefix outside of the domain instead of the prefix.

Notable Features

Workloads API (apps/v1beta2)

Kubernetes 1.8 adds the apps/v1beta2 group and version, which now consists of the DaemonSet, Deployment, ReplicaSet and StatefulSet kinds. This group and version are part of the Kubernetes Workloads API. We plan to move them to v1 in an upcoming release, so you might want to plan your migration accordingly.

For more information, see the issue that describes this work in detail

API Object Additions and Migrations

  • The DaemonSet, Deployment, ReplicaSet, and StatefulSet kinds are now in the apps/v1beta2 group and version.

  • The apps/v1beta2 group version adds a Scale subresource for the StatefulSet kind.

  • All kinds in the apps/v1beta2 group version add a corresponding conditions kind.

Behavioral Changes

  • For all kinds in the API group version, a spec.selector default value is no longer available, because it's incompatible with kubectl apply and strategic merge patch. You must explicitly set the spec.selector value in your manifest. An object with a spec.selector value that does not match the labels in its spec.template is invalid.

  • Selector mutation is disabled for all kinds in the app/v1beta2 group version, because the controllers in the workloads API do not handle selector mutation in a consistent way. This restriction may be lifted in the future, but it is likely that that selectors will remain immutable after the move to v1. You can continue to use code that depends on mutable selectors by calling the apps/v1beta1 API in this release, but you should start planning for code that does not depend on mutable selectors.

  • Extended Resources are fully-qualified resource names outside the domain. Extended Resource quantities must be integers. You can specify any resource name of the form [aaa.]my-domain.bbb/ccc in place of Opaque Integer Resources. Extended resources cannot be overcommitted, so make sure that request and limit are equal if both are present in a container spec.

  • The default Bootstrap Token created with kubeadm init v1.8 expires and is deleted after 24 hours by default to limit the exposure of the valuable credential. You can create a new Bootstrap Token with kubeadm token create or make the default token permanently valid by specifying --token-ttl 0 to kubeadm init. The default token can later be deleted with kubeadm token delete.

  • kubeadm join now delegates TLS Bootstrapping to the kubelet itself, instead of reimplementing the process. kubeadm join writes the bootstrap kubeconfig file to /etc/kubernetes/bootstrap-kubelet.conf.


  • The default spec.updateStrategy for the StatefulSet and DaemonSet kinds is RollingUpdate for the apps/v1beta2 group version. You can explicitly set the OnDelete strategy, and no strategy auto-conversion is applied to replace default values.

  • As mentioned in Behavioral Changes, selector defaults are disabled.

  • The default spec.revisionHistoryLimit for all applicable kinds in the apps/v1beta2 group version is 10.

  • In a CronJob object, the default spec.successfulJobsHistoryLimit is 3, and the default spec.failedJobsHistoryLimit is 1.

Workloads API (batch)

  • CronJob is now at batch/v1beta1 (#41039, @soltysh).

  • batch/v2alpha.CronJob is deprecated in favor of batch/v1beta and will be removed in a future release.

  • Job can now set a failure policy using .spec.backoffLimit. The default value for this new field is 6. (#30243, @clamoriniere1A).

  • batch/v2alpha1.ScheduledJob is removed.

  • The Job controller now creates pods in batches instead of all at once. (#49142, @joelsmith).

  • Short .spec.ActiveDeadlineSeconds is properly applied to a Job. (#48545, @weiwei4).

CLI Changes

  • [alpha] kubectl plugins: kubectl now allows binary extensibility. You can extend the default set of kubectl commands by writing plugins that provide new subcommands. Refer to the documentation for more information.

  • kubectl rollout and rollback now support StatefulSet.

  • kubectl scale now uses the Scale subresource for kinds in the apps/v1beta2 group.

  • kubectl create configmap and kubectl create secret subcommands now support the --append-hash flag, which enables unique but deterministic naming for objects generated from files, for example with --from-file.

  • kubectl run can set a service account name in the generated pod spec with the --serviceaccount flag.

  • kubectl proxy now correctly handles the exec, attach, and portforward commands. You must pass --disable-filter to the command to allow these commands.

  • Added cronjobs.batch to "all", so that kubectl get all returns them.

  • Added flag --include-uninitialized to kubectl annotate, apply, edit-last-applied, delete, describe, edit, get, label, and set. --include-uninitialized=true makes kubectl commands apply to uninitialized objects, which by default are ignored if the names of the objects are not provided. --all also makes kubectl commands apply to uninitialized objects. See the initializer documentation for more details.

  • Added RBAC reconcile commands with kubectl auth reconcile -f FILE. When passed a file which contains RBAC roles, rolebindings, clusterroles, or clusterrolebindings, this command computes covers and adds the missing rules. The logic required to properly apply RBAC permissions is more complicated than a JSON merge because you have to compute logical covers operations between rule sets. This means that we cannot use kubectl apply to update RBAC roles without risking breaking old clients, such as controllers.

  • kubectl delete no longer scales down workload API objects before deletion. Users who depend on ordered termination for the Pods of their StatefulSets must use kubectl scale to scale down the StatefulSet before deletion.

  • kubectl run --env no longer supports CSV parsing. To provide multiple environment variables, use the --env flag multiple times instead. Example: --env ONE=1 --env TWO=2 instead of --env ONE=1,TWO=2.

  • Removed deprecated command kubectl stop.

  • Kubectl can now use http caching for the OpenAPI schema. The cache directory can be configured by passing the --cache-dir command line flag to kubectl. If set to an empty string, caching is disabled.

  • Kubectl now performs validation against OpenAPI schema instead of Swagger 1.2. If OpenAPI is not available on the server, it falls back to the old Swagger 1.2.

  • Added Italian translation for kubectl.

  • Added German translation for kubectl.


  • [alpha] This version now supports pod priority and creation of PriorityClasses (user doc)(design doc)

  • [alpha] This version now supports priority-based preemption of pods (user doc)(design doc)

  • [alpha] Users can now add taints to nodes by condition (design doc)


  • [stable] Mount options

    • The ability to specify mount options for volumes is moved from beta to stable.

    • A new MountOptions field in the PersistentVolume spec is available to specify mount options. This field replaces an annotation.

    • A new MountOptions field in the StorageClass spec allows configuration of mount options for dynamically provisioned volumes.

  • [stable] Support Attach and Detach operations for ReadWriteOnce (RWO) volumes that use iSCSI and Fibre Channel plugins.

  • [stable] Expose storage usage metrics

    • The available capacity of a given Persistent Volume (PV) is available by calling the Kubernetes metrics API.
  • [stable] Volume plugin metrics

    • Success and latency metrics for all Kubernetes calls are available by calling the Kubernetes metrics API. You can request volume operations, including mount, unmount, attach, detach, provision, and delete.
  • [stable] The PV spec for Azure File, CephFS, iSCSI, and Glusterfs is modified to reference namespaced resources.

  • [stable] You can now customize the iSCSI initiator name per volume in the iSCSI volume plugin.

  • [stable] You can now specify the World Wide Identifier (WWID) for the volume identifier in the Fibre Channel volume plugin.

  • [beta] Reclaim policy in StorageClass

    • You can now configure the reclaim policy in StorageClass, instead of defaulting to delete for dynamically provisioned volumes.
  • [alpha] Volume resizing

    • You can now increase the size of a volume by calling the Kubernetes API.

    • For alpha, this feature increases only the size of the underlying volume. It does not support resizing the file system.

    • For alpha, volume resizing supports only Gluster volumes.

  • [alpha] Provide capacity isolation and resource management for local ephemeral storage

    • You can now set container requests, container limits, and node allocatable reservations for the new ephemeral-storage resource.

    • The ephemeral-storage resource includes all the disk space a container might consume with container overlay or scratch.

  • [alpha] Mount namespace propagation

    • The VolumeMount.Propagation field for VolumeMount in pod containers is now available.

    • You can now set VolumeMount.Propagation to Bidirectional to enable a particular mount for a container to propagate itself to the host or other containers.

  • [alpha] Improve Flex volume deployment

    • Flex volume driver deployment is simplified in the following ways:

      • New driver files can now be automatically discovered and initialized without requiring a kubelet or controller-manager restart.

      • A sample DaemonSet to deploy Flexvolume drivers is now available.

  • [prototype] Volume snapshots

Cluster Federation

[alpha] Federated Jobs

Federated Jobs that are automatically deployed to multiple clusters are now supported. Cluster selection and weighting determine how Job parallelism and completions are spread across clusters. Federated Job status reflects the aggregate status across all underlying cluster jobs.

[alpha] Federated Horizontal Pod Autoscaling (HPA)

Federated HPAs are similar to the traditional Kubernetes HPAs, except that they span multiple clusters. Creating a Federated HPA targeting multiple clusters ensures that cluster-level autoscalers are consistently deployed across those clusters, and dynamically managed to ensure that autoscaling can occur optimially in all clusters, within a set of global constraints on the total number of replicas permitted across all clusters. If replicas are not required in some clusters due to low system load or insufficient quota or capacity in those clusters, additional replicas are made available to the autoscalers in other clusters if required.

Node Components

Autoscaling and Metrics

  • Support for custom metrics in the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler is now at v1beta1. The associated metrics APIs (custom metrics and resource/master metrics) were also moved to v1beta1. For more information, see Before Upgrading.

  • metrics-server is now the recommended way to provide the resource metrics API. Deploy metrics-server as an add-on in the same way that you deploy Heapster.

Cluster Autoscaler
  • Cluster autoscaler is now GA
  • Cluster support size is increased to 1000 nodes
  • Respect graceful pod termination of up to 10 minutes
  • Handle zone stock-outs and failures
  • Improve monitoring and error reporting

Container Runtime Interface (CRI)

  • [alpha] Add a CRI validation test suite and CRI command-line tools. (#292, @feiskyer)

  • [stable] cri-o: CRI implementation for OCI-based runtimes [@mrunalp]

    • Passed all the Kubernetes 1.7 end-to-end conformance test suites.
    • Verification against Kubernetes 1.8 is planned soon after the release.
  • [stable] frakti: CRI implementation for hypervisor-based runtimes is now v1.1. [@feiskyer]

    • Enhance CNI plugin compatibility, supports flannel, calico, weave and so on.
    • Pass all CRI validation conformance tests and node end-to-end conformance tests.
    • Add experimental Unikernel support.
  • [alpha] cri-containerd: CRI implementation for containerd is now v1.0.0-alpha.0, [@Random-Liu]

    • Feature complete. Support the full CRI API defined in v1.8.
    • Pass all the CRI validation tests and regular node end-to-end tests.
    • An ansible playbook is provided to configure a Kubernetes cri-containerd cluster with kubeadm.
  • Add support in Kubelet to consume container metrics via CRI. [@yguo0905]

    • There are known bugs that result in errors when querying Kubelet's stats summary API. We expect to fix them in v1.8.1.


  • [alpha] Kubelet now supports alternative container-level CPU affinity policies by using the new CPU manager. (#375, @sjenning, @ConnorDoyle)

  • [alpha] Applications may now request pre-allocated hugepages by using the new hugepages resource in the container resource requests. (#275, @derekwaynecarr)

  • [alpha] Add support for dynamic Kubelet configuration. (#281, @mtaufen)

  • [alpha] Add the Hardware Device Plugins API. (#368, [@jiayingz], [@RenaudWasTaken])

  • [stable] Upgrade cAdvisor to v0.27.1 with the enhancement for node monitoring. [@dashpole]

    • Fix journalctl leak
    • Fix container memory rss
    • Fix incorrect CPU usage with 4.7 kernel
    • OOM parser uses kmsg
    • Add hugepages support
    • Add CRI-O support
  • Sharing a PID namespace between containers in a pod is disabled by default in version 1.8. To enable for a node, use the --docker-disable-shared-pid=false kubelet flag. Be aware that PID namespace sharing requires Docker version greater than or equal to 1.13.1.

  • Fix issues related to the eviction manager.

  • Fix inconsistent Prometheus cAdvisor metrics.

  • Fix issues related to the local storage allocatable feature.


  • [GA] The RBAC API group has been promoted from v1beta1 to v1. No API changes were introduced.

  • [beta] Advanced auditing has been promoted from alpha to beta. The webhook and logging policy formats have changed since alpha, and may require modification.

  • [beta] Kubelet certificate rotation through the certificates API has been promoted from alpha to beta. RBAC cluster roles for the certificates controller have been added for common uses of the certificates API, such as the kubelet's.

  • [beta] SelfSubjectRulesReview, an API that lets a user see what actions they can perform with a namespace, has been added to the API group. This bulk query is intended to enable UIs to show/hide actions based on the end user, and for users to quickly reason about their own permissions.

  • [alpha] Building on the 1.7 work to allow encryption of resources such as secrets, a mechanism to store resource encryption keys in external Key Management Systems (KMS) was introduced. This complements the original file-based storage and allows integration with multiple KMS. A Google Cloud KMS plugin was added and will be usable once the Google side of the integration is complete.

  • Websocket requests may now authenticate to the API server by passing a bearer token in a websocket subprotocol of the form<base64url-encoded-bearer-token>. (#47740, @liggitt)

  • Advanced audit now correctly reports impersonated user info. (#48184, @CaoShuFeng)

  • Advanced audit policy now supports matching subresources and resource names, but the top level resource no longer matches the subresouce. For example "pods" no longer matches requests to the logs subresource of pods. Use "pods/logs" to match subresources. (#48836, @ericchiang)

  • Previously a deleted service account or bootstrapping token secret would be considered valid until it was reaped. It is now invalid as soon as the deletionTimestamp is set. (#48343, @deads2k; #49057, @ericchiang)

  • The --insecure-allow-any-token flag has been removed from the API server. Users of the flag should use impersonation headers instead for debugging. (#49045, @ericchiang)

  • The NodeRestriction admission plugin now allows a node to evict pods bound to itself. (#48707, @danielfm)

  • The OwnerReferencesPermissionEnforcement admission plugin now requires update permission on the finalizers subresource of the referenced owner in order to set blockOwnerDeletion on an owner reference. (#49133, @deads2k)

  • The SubjectAccessReview API in the API group now allows providing the user uid. (#49677, @dims)

  • After a kubelet rotates its client cert, it now closes its connections to the API server to force a handshake using the new cert. Previously, the kubelet could keep its existing connection open, even if the cert used for that connection was expired and rejected by the API server. (#49899, @ericchiang)

  • PodSecurityPolicies can now specify a whitelist of allowed paths for host volumes. (#50212, @jhorwit2)

  • API server authentication now caches successful bearer token authentication results for a few seconds. (#50258, @liggitt)

  • The OpenID Connect authenticator can now use a custom prefix, or omit the default prefix, for username and groups claims through the --oidc-username-prefix and --oidc-groups-prefix flags. For example, the authenticator can map a user with the username "jane" to "google:jane" by supplying the "google:" username prefix. (#50875, @ericchiang)

  • The bootstrap token authenticator can now configure tokens with a set of extra groups in addition to system:bootstrappers. (#50933, @mattmoyer)

  • Advanced audit allows logging failed login attempts. (#51119, @soltysh)

  • A kubectl auth reconcile subcommand has been added for applying RBAC resources. When passed a file which contains RBAC roles, rolebindings, clusterroles, or clusterrolebindings, it will compute covers and add the missing rules. (#51636, @deads2k)

Cluster Lifecycle


  • [beta] A new upgrade subcommand allows you to automatically upgrade a self-hosted cluster created with kubeadm. (#296, @luxas)

  • [alpha] An experimental self-hosted cluster can now easily be created with kubeadm init. Enable the feature by setting the SelfHosting feature gate to true: --feature-gates=SelfHosting=true (#296, @luxas)

    • NOTE: Self-hosting will be the default way to host the control plane in the next release, v1.9
  • [alpha] A new phase subcommand supports performing only subtasks of the full kubeadm init flow. Combined with fine-grained configuration, kubeadm is now more easily consumable by higher-level provisioning tools like kops or GKE. (#356, @luxas)

    • NOTE: This command is currently staged under kubeadm alpha phase and will be graduated to top level in a future release.


Cluster Discovery/Bootstrap

  • [beta] The authentication and verification mechanism called Bootstrap Tokens is improved. Use Bootstrap Tokens to easily add new node identities to a cluster. (#130, @luxas, @jbeda).


  • [alpha] The Conformance e2e test suite now passes on the arm, arm64, and ppc64le platforms. (#288, @luxas, @mkumatag, @ixdy)

Cloud Providers

  • [alpha] Support is improved for the pluggable, out-of-tree and out-of-core cloud providers. (#88, @wlan0)



kube-proxy ipvs mode

[alpha] Support ipvs mode for kube-proxy(#46580, @haibinxie)

API Machinery


  • Fixed an issue with APIService auto-registration. This issue affected rolling restarts of HA API servers that added or removed API groups being served.(#51921)

  • [Alpha] The Kubernetes API server now supports the ability to break large LIST calls into multiple smaller chunks. A client can specify a limit to the number of results to return. If more results exist, a token is returned that allows the client to continue the previous list call repeatedly until all results are retrieved. The resulting list is identical to a list call that does not perform chunking, thanks to capabilities provided by etcd3. This allows the server to use less memory and CPU when very large lists are returned. This feature is gated as APIListChunking and is not enabled by default. The 1.9 release will begin using this by default.(#48921)

  • Pods that are marked for deletion and have exceeded their grace period, but are not yet deleted, no longer count toward the resource quota.(#46542)

Dynamic Admission Control

  • Pod spec is mutable when the pod is uninitialized. The API server requires the pod spec to be valid even if it's uninitialized. Updating the status field of uninitialized pods is invalid.(#51733)

  • Use of the alpha initializers feature now requires enabling the Initializers feature gate. This feature gate is automatically enabled if the Initializers admission plugin is enabled.(#51436)

  • [Action required] The validation rule for metadata.initializers.pending[x].name is tightened. The initializer name must contain at least three segments, separated by dots. You can create objects with pending initializers and not rely on the API server to add pending initializers according to initializerConfiguration. If you do so, update the initializer name in the existing objects and the configuration files to comply with the new validation rule.(#51283)

  • The webhook admission plugin now works even if the API server and the nodes are in two separate networks,for example, in GKE. The webhook admission plugin now lets the webhook author use the DNS name of the service as the CommonName when generating the server cert for the webhook. Action required: Regenerate the server cert for the admission webhooks. Previously, the CN value could be ignored while generating the server cert for the admission webhook. Now you must set it to the DNS name of the webhook service: <service.Name>.<service.Namespace>.svc.(#50476)

Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs)

  • [alpha] The CustomResourceDefinition API can now optionally validate custom objects based on a JSON schema provided in the CRD spec. Enable this alpha feature with the CustomResourceValidation feature gate in kube-apiserver.

Garbage Collector

  • The garbage collector now supports custom APIs added via Custom Resource Definitions or aggregated API servers. The garbage collector controller refreshes periodically. Therefore, expect a latency of about 30 seconds between when an API is added and when the garbage collector starts to manage it.


  • [action required] The WATCHLIST calls are now reported as WATCH verbs in prometheus for the apiserver_request_* series. A new "scope" label is added to all apiserver_request_* values that is either 'cluster', 'resource', or 'namespace' depending on which level the query is performed at.(#52237)

Go Client

  • Add support for client-side spam filtering of events(#47367)

External Dependencies

Continuous integration builds use Docker versions 1.11.2, 1.12.6, 1.13.1, and 17.03.2. These versions were validated on Kubernetes 1.8. However, consult an appropriate installation or upgrade guide before deciding what versions of Docker to use.

  • Docker 1.13.1 and 17.03.2

    • Shared PID namespace, live-restore, and overlay2 were validated.

    • Known issues

      • The default iptables FORWARD policy was changed from ACCEPT to DROP, which causes outbound container traffic to stop working by default. See #40182 for the workaround.

      • The support for the v1 registries was removed.

  • Docker 1.12.6

    • Overlay2 and live-restore are not validated.

    • Known issues

      • Shared PID namespace does not work properly. (#207)

      • Docker reports incorrect exit codes for containers. (#41516)

  • Docker 1.11.2

    • Known issues

      • Kernel crash with Aufs storage driver on Debian Jessie (#27885). The issue can be identified by using the node problem detector.

      • File descriptor leak on init/control. (#275)

      • Additional memory overhead per container. (#21737)

      • Processes may be leaked when Docker is repeatedly terminated in a short time frame. (#41450)

  • v1.8.0-rc.1

  • v1.8.0-beta.1

  • v1.8.0-alpha.3

  • v1.8.0-alpha.2

Changelog since v1.8.0-alpha.3

Action Required

  • The OwnerReferencesPermissionEnforcement admission plugin now requires update permission on the finalizers subresource of the referenced owner in order to set blockOwnerDeletion on an owner reference. (#49133, @deads2k)
  • The deprecated alpha and beta initContainer annotations are no longer supported. Init containers must be specified using the initContainers field in the pod spec. (#51816, @liggitt)
  • Action required: validation rule on metadata.initializers.pending[x].name is tightened. The initializer name needs to contain at least three segments separated by dots. If you create objects with pending initializers, (i.e., not relying on apiserver adding pending initializers according to initializerconfiguration), you need to update the initializer name in existing objects and in configuration files to comply to the new validation rule. (#51283, @caesarxuchao)
  • Audit policy supports matching subresources and resource names, but the top level resource no longer matches the subresouce. For example "pods" no longer matches requests to the logs subresource of pods. Use "pods/logs" to match subresources. (#48836, @ericchiang)
  • Protobuf serialization does not distinguish between [] and null. (#45294, @liggitt)
    • API fields previously capable of storing and returning either [] and null via JSON API requests (for example, the Endpoints subsets field) can now store only null when created using the protobuf content-type or stored in etcd using protobuf serialization (the default in 1.6+). JSON API clients should tolerate null values for such fields, and treat null and [] as equivalent in meaning unless specifically documented otherwise for a particular field.

Other notable changes

  • Fixes an issue with upgrade requests made via pod/service/node proxy subresources sending a non-absolute HTTP request-uri to backends (#52065, @liggitt)
  • kubeadm: add kubeadm phase addons command (#51171, @andrewrynhard)
  • v2 of the autoscaling API group, including improvements to the HorizontalPodAutoscaler, has moved from alpha1 to beta1. (#50708, @DirectXMan12)
  • Fixed a bug where some alpha features were enabled by default. (#51839, @jennybuckley)
  • Implement StatsProvider interface using CRI stats (#51557, @yguo0905)
  • set AdvancedAuditing feature gate to true by default (#51943, @CaoShuFeng)
  • Migrate the metrics/v1alpha1 API to metrics/v1beta1. The HorizontalPodAutoscaler (#51653, @DirectXMan12)
    • controller REST client now uses that version. For v1beta1, the API is now known as
  • In GCE with COS, increase TasksMax for Docker service to raise cap on number of threads/processes used by containers. (#51986, @yujuhong)
  • Fixes an issue with APIService auto-registration affecting rolling HA apiserver restarts that add or remove API groups being served. (#51921, @liggitt)
  • Sharing a PID namespace between containers in a pod is disabled by default in 1.8. To enable for a node, use the --docker-disable-shared-pid=false kubelet flag. Note that PID namespace sharing requires docker >= 1.13.1. (#51634, @verb)
  • Build test targets for all server platforms (#51873, @luxas)
  • Add EgressRule to NetworkPolicy (#51351, @cmluciano)
  • Allow DNS resolution of service name for COS using containerized mounter. It fixed the issue with DNS resolution of NFS and Gluster services. (#51645, @jingxu97)

  • Implement Controller for growing persistent volumes (#49727, @gnufied)
  • Kubernetes 1.8 supports docker version 1.11.x, 1.12.x and 1.13.x. And also supports overlay2. (#51845, @Random-Liu)
  • The Deployment, DaemonSet, and ReplicaSet kinds in the extensions/v1beta1 group version are now deprecated, as are the Deployment, StatefulSet, and ControllerRevision kinds in apps/v1beta1. As they will not be removed until after a GA version becomes available, you may continue to use these kinds in existing code. However, all new code should be developed against the apps/v1beta2 group version. (#51828, @kow3ns)
  • kubeadm: Detect kubelet readiness and error out if the kubelet is unhealthy (#51369, @luxas)
  • Fix providerID update validation (#51761, @karataliu)

  • Adds a new alpha EventRateLimit admission control that is used to limit the number of event queries that are accepted by the API Server. (#50925, @staebler)
  • The OpenID Connect authenticator can now use a custom prefix, or omit the default prefix, for username and groups claims through the --oidc-username-prefix and --oidc-groups-prefix flags. For example, the authenticator can map a user with the username "jane" to "google:jane" by supplying the "google:" username prefix. (#50875, @ericchiang)
  • Implemented kubeadm upgrade plan for checking whether you can upgrade your cluster to a newer version (#48899, @luxas)
    • Implemented kubeadm upgrade apply for upgrading your cluster from one version to an other

  • audit newest impersonated user info in the ResponseStarted, ResponseComplete audit stage (#48184, @CaoShuFeng)
  • Fixed bug in AWS provider to handle multiple IPs when using more than 1 network interface per ec2 instance. (#50112, @jlz27)
  • Add flag "--include-uninitialized" to kubectl annotate, apply, edit-last-applied, delete, describe, edit, get, label, set. "--include-uninitialized=true" makes kubectl commands apply to uninitialized objects, which by default are ignored if the names of the objects are not provided. "--all" also makes kubectl commands apply to uninitialized objects. Please see the initializer doc for more details. (#50497, @dixudx)
  • GCE: Service object now supports "Network Tiers" as an Alpha feature via annotations. (#51301, @yujuhong)
  • When using on GCE, user could set env ENABLE_POD_PRIORITY=true to enable pod priority feature gate. (#51069, @MrHohn)
  • The names generated for ControllerRevision and ReplicaSet are consistent with the GenerateName functionality of the API Server and will not contain "bad words". (#51538, @kow3ns)
  • PersistentVolumeClaim metrics like "volume_stats_inodes" and "volume_stats_capacity_bytes" are now reported via kubelet prometheus (#51553, @wongma7)
  • When using IP aliases, use a secondary range rather than subnetwork to reserve cluster IPs. (#51690, @bowei)
  • IPAM controller unifies handling of node pod CIDR range allocation. (#51374, @bowei)
    • It is intended to supersede the logic that is currently in range_allocator
    • and cloud_cidr_allocator. (ALPHA FEATURE)
    • Note: for this change, the other allocators still exist and are the default.
    • It supports two modes:
      • CIDR range allocations done within the cluster that are then propagated out to the cloud provider.
      • Cloud provider managed IPAM that is then reflected into the cluster.
  • Alpha list paging implementation (#48921, @smarterclayton)
  • add reconcile command to kubectl auth (#51636, @deads2k)
  • Advanced audit allows logging failed login attempts (#51119, @soltysh)
  • kubeadm: Add support for using an external CA whose key is never stored in the cluster (#50832, @nckturner)
  • the custom metrics API ( has moved from v1alpha1 to v1beta1 (#50920, @DirectXMan12)
  • Add backoff policy and failed pod limit for a job (#48075, @clamoriniere1A)
  • Performs validation (when applying for example) against OpenAPI schema rather than Swagger 1.0. (#51364, @apelisse)
  • Make all e2e tests lookup image to use from a centralized place. In that centralized place, add support for multiple platforms. (#49457, @mkumatag)
  • kubelet has alpha support for mount propagation. It is disabled by default and it is there for testing only. This feature may be redesigned or even removed in a future release. (#46444, @jsafrane)
  • Add selfsubjectrulesreview API for allowing users to query which permissions they have in a given namespace. (#48051, @xilabao)
  • Kubelet re-binds /var/lib/kubelet directory with rshared mount propagation during startup if it is not shared yet. (#45724, @jsafrane)
  • Deviceplugin jiayingz (#51209, @jiayingz)
  • Make logdump support kubemark and support gke with 'use_custom_instance_list' (#51834, @shyamjvs)
  • add apps/v1beta2 conversion test (#49645, @dixudx)
  • Fixed an issue (#47800) where kubectl logs -f failed with unexpected stream type "". (#50381, @sczizzo)
  • GCE: Internal load balancer IPs are now reserved during service sync to prevent losing the address to another service. (#51055, @nicksardo)
  • Switch JSON marshal/unmarshal to json-iterator library. Performance should be close to previous with no generated code. (#48287, @thockin)
  • Adds optional group and version information to the discovery interface, so that if an endpoint uses non-default values, the proper value of "kind" can be determined. Scale is a common example. (#49971, @deads2k)
  • #43077 introduced a condition where DaemonSet controller did not respect the TerminationGracePeriodSeconds of the Pods it created. This is now corrected. (#51279, @kow3ns)
  • Add a persistent volume label controller to the cloud-controller-manager (#44680, @rrati)
  • Tainted nodes by conditions as following: (#49257, @k82cn) * '' if NetworkUnavailable is true * '' if DiskPressure is true * '' if MemoryPressure is true * '' if OutOfDisk is true
  • rbd: default image format to v2 instead of deprecated v1 (#51574, @dillaman)
  • Surface reasonable error when client detects connection closed. (#51381, @mengqiy)
  • Allow PSP's to specify a whitelist of allowed paths for host volume (#50212, @jhorwit2)
  • For Deployment, ReplicaSet, and DaemonSet, selectors are now immutable when updating via the new apps/v1beta2 API. For backward compatibility, selectors can still be changed when updating via apps/v1beta1 or extensions/v1beta1. (#50719, @crimsonfaith91)
  • Allows kubectl to use http caching mechanism for the OpenAPI schema. The cache directory can be configured through --cache-dir command line flag to kubectl. If set to empty string, caching will be disabled. (#50404, @apelisse)
  • Pod log attempts are now reported in apiserver prometheus metrics with verb CONNECT since they can run for very long periods of time. (#50123, @WIZARD-CXY)

  • Fix inconsistent Prometheus cAdvisor metrics (#51473, @bboreham)
  • Add local ephemeral storage to downward API (#50435, @NickrenREN)
  • kubectl zsh autocompletion will work with compinit (#50561, @cblecker)

  • Add --request-timeout to kube-apiserver to make global request timeout configurable. (#51415, @jpbetz)
  • Deprecate auto detecting cloud providers in kubelet. Auto detecting cloud providers go against the initiative for out-of-tree cloud providers as we'll now depend on cAdvisor integrations with cloud providers instead of the core repo. In the near future, --cloud-provider for kubelet will either be an empty string or external. (#51312, @andrewsykim)
  • Add local ephemeral storage support to Quota (#49610, @NickrenREN)
  • Kubelet updates default labels if those are deprecated (#47044, @mrIncompetent)

  • Azure file persistent volumes can use a new secretNamespace field to reference a secret in a different namespace than the one containing their bound persistent volume claim. The azure file persistent volume provisioner honors a corresponding secretNamespace storage class parameter to determine where to place secrets containing the storage account key. (#47660, @rootfs)

Changelog since v1.8.0-alpha.2

Action Required

  • Remove deprecated kubectl command aliases apiversions, clusterinfo, resize, rollingupdate, run-container, update (#49935, @xiangpengzhao)
  • The following deprecated flags have been removed from kube-controller-manager: replication-controller-lookup-cache-size, replicaset-lookup-cache-size, and daemonset-lookup-cache-size. Make sure you no longer attempt to set them. (#50678, @xiangpengzhao)
  • Beta annotations and have been removed. Please use fields service.spec.externalTrafficPolicy and service.spec.healthCheckNodePort instead. (#50224, @xiangpengzhao)
  • A cluster using the AWS cloud provider will need to label existing nodes and resources with a ClusterID or the kube-controller-manager will not start. To run without a ClusterID pass --allow-untagged-cloud=true to the kube-controller-manager on startup. (#49215, @rrati)
  • RBAC: the system:node role is no longer automatically granted to the system:nodes group in new clusters. It is recommended that nodes be authorized using the Node authorization mode instead. Installations that wish to continue giving all members of the system:nodes group the system:node role (which grants broad read access, including all secrets and configmaps) must create an installation-specific ClusterRoleBinding. (#49638, @liggitt)
  • StatefulSet: The deprecated annotation for interrupting StatefulSet Pod management is now ignored. If you were setting it to true or leaving it unset, no action is required. However, if you were setting it to false, be aware that previously-dormant StatefulSets may become active after upgrading. (#49251, @enisoc)
  • add some more deprecation warnings to cluster (#49148, @mikedanese)
  • The --insecure-allow-any-token flag has been removed from kube-apiserver. Users of the flag should use impersonation headers instead for debugging. (#49045, @ericchiang)
  • Restored cAdvisor prometheus metrics to the main port -- a regression that existed in v1.7.0-v1.7.2 (#49079, @smarterclayton)
    • cAdvisor metrics can now be scraped from /metrics/cadvisor on the kubelet ports.
    • Note that you have to update your scraping jobs to get kubelet-only metrics from /metrics and container_* metrics from /metrics/cadvisor
  • Change the default kubeadm bootstrap token TTL from infinite to 24 hours. This is a breaking change. If you require the old behavior, use kubeadm init --token-ttl 0 / kubeadm token create --ttl 0. (#48783, @mattmoyer)

Other notable changes

  • Remove duplicate command example from kubectl port-forward --help (#50229, @tcharding)
  • Adds a new kubeadm config command that lets users tell kubeadm upgrade what kubeadm configuration to use and lets users view the current state. (#50980, @luxas)
  • Kubectl uses openapi for validation. If OpenAPI is not available on the server, it defaults back to the old Swagger. (#50546, @apelisse)
  • kubectl show node role if defined (#50438, @dixudx)
  • iSCSI volume plugin: iSCSI initiatorname support (#48789, @mtanino)

  • Prevent unneeded endpoint updates (#50934, @joelsmith)
  • Affinity in annotations alpha feature is no longer supported in 1.8. Anyone upgrading from 1.7 with AffinityInAnnotation feature enabled must ensure pods (specifically with pod anti-affinity PreferredDuringSchedulingIgnoredDuringExecution) with empty TopologyKey fields must be removed before upgrading to 1.8. (#49976, @aveshagarwal)
    • kubeadm now supports "ci/latest-1.8" or "ci-cross/latest-1.8" and similar labels. (#49119, @kad)
  • kubeadm: Adds dry-run support for kubeadm using the --dry-run option (#50631, @luxas)

  • kubectl run --env no longer supports CSV parsing. To provide multiple env vars, use the --env flag multiple times instead of having env vars separated by commas. E.g. --env ONE=1 --env TWO=2 instead of --env ONE=1,TWO=2. (#47460, @mengqiy)
  • Local storage teardown fix (#48402, @ianchakeres)
  • support json output for log backend of advanced audit (#48605, @CaoShuFeng)
  • Requests with the query parameter ?watch= are treated by the API server as a request to watch, but authorization and metrics were not correctly identifying those as watch requests, instead grouping them as list calls. (#48583, @smarterclayton)
  • As part of the NetworkPolicy "v1" changes, it is also now (#47123, @danwinship)
    • possible to update the spec field of an existing
    • NetworkPolicy. (Previously you had to delete and recreate a

  • When performing a GET then PUT, the kube-apiserver must write the canonical representation of the object to etcd if the current value does not match. That allows external agents to migrate content in etcd from one API version to another, across different storage types, or across varying encryption levels. This fixes a bug introduced in 1.5 where we unintentionally stopped writing the newest data. (#48394, @smarterclayton)

Changelog since v1.7.0-alpha.4

Action Required

  • The following alpha API groups were unintentionally enabled by default in previous releases, and will no longer be enabled by default in v1.8: (#47690, @caesarxuchao)
    • If you wish to continue using them in v1.8, please enable them explicitly using the --runtime-config flag of the apiserver (for example, --runtime-config=",")
  • Paths containing backsteps (for example, "../bar") are no longer allowed in hostPath volume paths, or in volumeMount subpaths (#47290, @jhorwit2)
  • Azure: Change container permissions to private for provisioned volumes. If you have existing Azure volumes that were created by Kubernetes v1.6.0-v1.6.5, you should change the permissions on them manually. (#47605, @brendandburns)
  • New and upgraded 1.7 GCE/GKE clusters no longer have an RBAC ClusterRoleBinding that grants the cluster-admin ClusterRole to the default service account in the kube-system namespace. (#46750, @cjcullen)
    • If this permission is still desired, run the following command to explicitly grant it, either before or after upgrading to 1.7:
    • kubectl create clusterrolebinding kube-system-default --serviceaccount=kube-system:default --clusterrole=cluster-admin
  • kube-apiserver: a new authorization mode (--authorization-mode=Node) authorizes nodes to access secrets, configmaps, persistent volume claims and persistent volumes related to their pods. (#46076, @liggitt) * Nodes must use client credentials that place them in the system:nodes group with a username of system:node:<nodeName> in order to be authorized by the node authorizer (the credentials obtained by the kubelet via TLS bootstrapping satisfy these requirements) * When used in combination with the RBAC authorization mode (--authorization-mode=Node,RBAC), the system:node role is no longer automatically granted to the system:nodes group.
  • kube-controller-manager has dropped support for the --insecure-experimental-approve-all-kubelet-csrs-for-group flag. Instead, the csrapproving controller uses authorization checks to determine whether to approve certificate signing requests: (#45619, @mikedanese) * requests for a TLS client certificate for any node are approved if the CSR creator has create permission on the certificatesigningrequests resource and nodeclient subresource in the API group * requests from a node for a TLS client certificate for itself are approved if the CSR creator has create permission on the certificatesigningrequests resource and the selfnodeclient subresource in the API group * requests from a node for a TLS serving certificate for itself are approved if the CSR creator has create permission on the certificatesigningrequests resource and the selfnodeserver subresource in the API group
  • Support updating storageclasses in etcd to You must do this prior to upgrading to 1.8. (#46116, @ncdc)
  • The namespace API object no longer supports the deletecollection operation. (#46407, @liggitt)
  • NetworkPolicy has been moved from extensions/v1beta1 to the new (#39164, @danwinship) API group. The structure remains unchanged from the beta1 API. The annotation on Namespaces to opt in to isolation has been removed. Instead, isolation is now determined at a per-pod level, with pods being isolated if there is any NetworkPolicy whose spec.podSelector targets them. Pods that are targeted by NetworkPolicies accept traffic that is accepted by any of the NetworkPolicies (and nothing else), and pods that are not targeted by any NetworkPolicy accept all traffic by default. Action Required: When upgrading to Kubernetes 1.7 (and a network plugin that supports the new NetworkPolicy v1 semantics), to ensure full behavioral compatibility with v1beta1:
    1. In Namespaces that previously had the "DefaultDeny" annotation, you can create equivalent v1 semantics by creating a NetworkPolicy that matches all pods but does not allow any traffic:

          kind: NetworkPolicy
            name: default-deny

      This will ensure that pods that aren't matched by any other NetworkPolicy will continue to be fully-isolated, as they were before.

    2. In Namespaces that previously did not have the "DefaultDeny" annotation, you should delete any existing NetworkPolicy objects. These would have had no effect before, but with v1 semantics they might cause some traffic to be blocked that you didn't intend to be blocked.

    • waiting for the request to be satisfied. It will continually refresh the certificate
    • as the certificates expiration approaches.
  • The Kubernetes API supports retrieving tabular output for API resources via a new mime-type application/json;as=Table;v=v1alpha1; The returned object (if the server supports it) will be of type with Table, and contain column and row information related to the resource. Each row will contain information about the resource - by default it will be the object metadata, but callers can add the ?includeObject=Object query parameter and receive the full object. In the future kubectl will use this to retrieve the results of kubectl get. (#40848, @smarterclayton)
  • This change add nonResourceURL to kubectl auth cani (#46432, @CaoShuFeng)
  • Webhook added to the API server which omits structured audit log events. (#45919, @ericchiang)

    • request a server certificate from the API server during the boot cycle and pause
    • waiting for the request to be satisfied. It will continually refresh the certificate as
    • the certificates expiration approaches.

  • Fix log spam due to unnecessary status update when node is deleted. (#45923, @verult)
  • GCE installs will now avoid IP masquerade for all RFC-1918 IP blocks, rather than just This means that clusters can (#46473, @thockin)
    • be created in and while preserving the container IPs (which would be lost before).
  • set selector and set subject no longer print "running in local/dry-run mode..." at the top, so their output can be piped as valid yaml or json (#46507, @bboreham)
  • ControllerRevision type added for StatefulSet and DaemonSet history. (#45867, @kow3ns)
  • Bump Go version to 1.8.3 (#46429, @wojtek-t)
  • Upgrade Elasticsearch Addon to v5.4.0 (#45589, @it-svit)
  • PodDisruptionBudget now uses ControllerRef to decide which controller owns a given Pod, so it doesn't get confused by controllers with overlapping selectors. (#45003, @krmayankk)
  • aws: Support for ELB tagging by users (#45932, @lpabon)
  • Portworx volume driver no longer has to run on the master. (#45518, @harsh-px)
  • kube-proxy: ratelimit runs of iptables by sync-period flags (#46266, @thockin)
  • Deployments are updated to use (1) a more stable hashing algorithm (fnv) than the previous one (adler) and (2) a hashing collision avoidance mechanism that will ensure new rollouts will not block on hashing collisions anymore. (#44774, @kargakis)
  • The Prometheus metrics for the kube-apiserver for tracking incoming API requests and latencies now return the subresource label for correctly attributing the type of API call. (#46354, @smarterclayton)
  • Add Simplified Chinese translation for kubectl (#45573, @shiywang)
  • The --namespace flag is now honored for in-cluster clients that have an empty configuration. (#46299, @ncdc)
  • Fix init container status reporting when active deadline is exceeded. (#46305, @sjenning)
  • Improves performance of Cinder volume attach/detach operations (#41785, @jamiehannaford)
  • GCE and AWS dynamic provisioners extension: admins can configure zone(s) in which a persistent volume shall be created. (#38505, @pospispa)
  • Break the 'certificatesigningrequests' controller into a 'csrapprover' controller and 'csrsigner' controller. (#45514, @mikedanese)
  • Modifies kubefed to create and the federation controller manager to use credentials associated with a service account rather than the user's credentials. (#42042, @perotinus)
  • Adds a MaxUnavailable field to PodDisruptionBudget (#45587, @foxish)
  • The behavior of some watch calls to the server when filtering on fields was incorrect. If watching objects with a filter, when an update was made that no longer matched the filter a DELETE event was correctly sent. However, the object that was returned by that delete was not the (correct) version before the update, but instead, the newer version. That meant the new object was not matched by the filter. This was a regression from behavior between cached watches on the server side and uncached watches, and thus broke downstream API clients. (#46223, @smarterclayton)
  • vSphere cloud provider: vSphere Storage policy Support for dynamic volume provisioning (#46176, @BaluDontu)
  • Add support for emitting metrics from openstack cloudprovider about storage operations. (#46008, @NickrenREN)
  • 'kubefed init' now supports overriding the default etcd image name with the --etcd-image parameter. (#46247, @marun)
  • remove the elasticsearch template (#45952, @harryge00)
  • Adds the CustomResourceDefinition (crd) types to the kube-apiserver. These are the successors to ThirdPartyResource. See for more details. (#46055, @deads2k)
  • StatefulSets now include an alpha scaling feature accessible by setting the spec.podManagementPolicy field to Parallel. The controller will not wait for pods to be ready before adding the other pods, and will replace deleted pods as needed. Since parallel scaling creates pods out of order, you cannot depend on predictable membership changes within your set. (#44899, @smarterclayton)
  • fix kubelet event recording for selected events. (#46246, @derekwaynecarr)
  • Moved qos to api.helpers. (#44906, @k82cn)
  • Kubelet PLEG updates the relist timestamp only after successfully relisting. (#45496, @andyxning)
  • OpenAPI spec is now available in protobuf binary and gzip format (with ETag support) (#45836, @mbohlool)
  • Added support to a hierarchy of kubectl plugins (a tree of plugins as children of other plugins). (#45981, @fabianofranz)
    • Added exported env vars to kubectl plugins so that plugin developers have access to global flags, namespace, the plugin descriptor and the full path to the caller binary.
  • Ignored mirror pods in PodPreset admission plugin. (#45958, @k82cn)
  • Don't try to attach volume to new node if it is already attached to another node and the volume does not support multi-attach. (#45346, @codablock)
  • The Calico version included in kube-up for GCE has been updated to v2.2. (#38169, @caseydavenport)
  • Kubelet: Fix image garbage collector attempting to remove in-use images. (#46121, @Random-Liu)
  • Add ip-masq-agent addon to the addons folder which is used in GCE if --non-masquerade-cidr is set to 0/0 (#46038, @dnardo)
  • Fix serialization of EnforceNodeAllocatable (#44606, @ivan4th)
  • Add --write-config-to flag to kube-proxy to allow users to write the default configuration settings to a file. (#45908, @ncdc)
  • The NodeRestriction admission plugin limits the Node and Pod objects a kubelet can modify. In order to be limited by this admission plugin, kubelets must use credentials in the system:nodes group, with a username in the form system:node:<nodeName>. Such kubelets will only be allowed to modify their own Node API object, and only modify Pod API objects that are bound to their node. (#45929, @liggitt)
  • vSphere cloud provider: Report same Node IP as both internal and external. (#45201, @abrarshivani)
  • The options passed to a flexvolume plugin's mount command now contains the pod name (, namespace (, uid (, and service account name ( (#39488, @liggitt)
