Flux v1.15.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-10-02 // 16 days ago
  • This feature release adds secure support for Git over HTTPS, updates kubectl and kustomize, and does a lot of internal rewiring without changing user-visible functions or the public APIs. From this release forward, garbage collection, namespace scoping, and manifest generation are no longer considered experimental.

    🛠 Fixes

    • ♻️ Reinstate git-secret support after accidentally breaking it during a refactor that landed in 1.14.0 fluxcd/flux#2429
    • 🛠 Fix error handling in splitConfigFilesAndRawManifestPaths fluxcd/flux#2455

    ✨ Enhancements

    • 👌 Support secure Git over HTTPS using credentials from environment variables fluxcd/flux#2470
    • ➕ Add a flag --sync-timeout, for configuring the timeout of sync operations. This is mainly of interest to people making use of the manifest generation feature, or people who are operating exceptionally large Git repositories fluxcd/flux#2481
    • ⚡️ Update kubectl to 1.14.7 and kustomize to 3.2.0 fluxcd/flux#2461
    • De-experimental-ise garbage collection, namespace scoping, and manifest generation features fluxcd/flux#2485
    • 👌 Improve logged warning about unsupported automated resource kinds fluxcd/flux#2471
