  • Move to apps/v1 for deployment/daemonset resources to support recent Kubernetes versions (1.16+)
  • Fixes inability to cleanup experiment job when .spec.jobCleanupPolicy is set to delete with Go chaos runner
  • Fixes reuse of facts/ playbook, included & registered variables by setting up a new naming convention to pass details from experiment logic playbooks to task files
