FluxCD v2 - v0.41.0

Flux v0.41.0 comes with new features and improvements. Users are encouraged to upgrade for the best experience.

Features and improvements

  • Experimental support of drift detection of Helm releases compared to cluster-state.
  • Improved handling of SIGTERM signals received by the helm-controller, which will now terminate running Helm install or upgrade actions, instead of potentially leaving them in a pending state.
  • Opt-in OOM watcher in helm-controller to handle graceful termination of the controller before it is forcefully killed by Kubernetes' OOM killer.
  • Kubernetes client and Custom Resource Definition life-cycle improvements to reduce the memory consumption of the helm-controller, with observed reductions up to 50%.
  • Opt-in allowance of DNS lookups during the rendering of Helm templates in the helm-controller via feature gate.
  • Optional disabling of the cache of the status poller used to determine the health of the resources applied by the kustomize-controller. This may improve memory usage on large scale clusters at the cost of more direct API calls.
  • Changes to the logging of all controllers to ensure Kubernetes components like the discovery client use the configured logging format.
  • New flux events command to display Kubernetes events for Flux resources, including the events of a referenced resource.
  • Custom annotations can now be set with flux push using --annotations.
