crossplane - v1.3.0

Major Themes

The v1.3.0 release introduces a hotly awaited Composition feature - adds new CombineFromComposite and CombineToComposite patch types that can be used to patch from multiple Composite Resource (XR) fields to a single composed resource field, and vice versa.

Notable Updates

  • - Marks the v1beta1 and API groups as deprecated.
  • - Removes support for the OAM Crossplane extension. We recommend using Crossplane with KubeVela instead.
  • - Adds new CombineFromComposite and CombineToComposite composition patch types.
  • - XRs now continue the reconcile process when they encounter a composed resource that they can't (yet) render.
  • - Adds initial E2E tests for composition!
  • - Increases the resilience of the Crossplane package parser.
  • - Allows kubectl crossplane to wait for operations to complete.
  • - Prevents inactive package revisions from creating resources.
  • - Fixes a bug that prevented the ControllerConfig ImagePullPolicy from propagating to the provider Deployment.
  • - Changes the handling of the package Lock to allow a clean uninstall of Crossplane.


Crossplane manages its own CRDs since v1.2.0, making running helm upgrade the only step required for upgrading to v1.3.0. See the Upgrading Guide for more information.
