CRD Upgrades


This release supports only the API version v1beta2 and CRD version If upgrading from Strimzi 0.22, migration to v1beta2 needs to be completed for all Strimzi CRDs and CRs before the upgrade to 0.25 is done! If upgrading from Strimzi version earlier than 0.22, you need to first install the CRDs from Strimzi 0.22 and complete the migration to v1beta2 for all Strimzi CRDs and CRs before the upgrade to 0.25 is done!

For more details about the CRD upgrades, see the documentation.

Main changes since 0.24

Changes, deprecations and removals

  • The KafkaConnectS2I resource has been removed and is no longer supported by the operator.
    Please use the migration guide to migrate your KafkaConnectS2I deployments to KafkaConnect Build instead.
  • The Open Policy Agent authorizer has been updated to a new version that supports Scala 2.13.
    The new release introduces a new format of the input data sent to the Open Policy Agent server.
    For more information about the new format and how to migrate from the old version, see the OPA Kafka plugin v1.0.0 release notes.
  • User Operator now uses Kafka Admin API to manage SCRAM-SHA-512 credentials.
    All operations done by the User Operator now use Kafka Admin API and connect directly to Kafka instead of ZooKeeper.
    As a result, the environment variables STRIMZI_ZOOKEEPER_CONNECT and STRIMZI_ZOOKEEPER_SESSION_TIMEOUT_MS were removed from the User Operator configuration.
  • All emptyDir volumes used by Strimzi for temporary files have now configured a fixed size limit.
  • Annotate Cluster Operator resource metrics with a namespace label
