FluxCD v2 - v0.39.0



Flux v0.39.0 comes with new features and improvements. Users are encouraged to upgrade for the best experience.

Starting with version, the Flux controllers come with SBOMs and SLSA Provenance Attestations embedded in their container images.

The Flux Terraform Provider has a new resource for bootstrapping Flux, without depending on third-party Terraform providers, that allows customising the controllers at install time. Users are encouraged to migrate to this new resources and provide feedback.

The Flux CLI is now included in Wolfi OS, the Linux (Un)distro designed for securing the software supply chain. The Chainguard team and Wolfi maintainers are shipping updates for the Flux package on a regular basis.

Features and improvements

  • Recreate immutable resources (e.g. Kubernetes Jobs) by annotating or labeling them with kustomize.toolkit.fluxcd.io/force: enabled.
  • Support for HTTPS bearer token authentication for Git repositories.
  • Improve memory usage by disabling the caching of Secret and ConfigMap resources in all controllers.
  • Better observability with progressive status updates for Sources (Git, OCI, Helm, S3 Buckets).
  • Allow extracting the OCI artifact SHA256 digest for Cosign with flux push artifact -o json.
  • Track CRDs managed by Flux, flux trace and flux tree will show which HelmRelease deployed which CRDs.
  • Allow the Flux GitHub Action to use a GitHub token when checking for updates to avoid rate limiting.
