Announcing Knative v0.4 Release
Once again, we are excited to announce updates to Knative. The v0.4 release continues to respond to ongoing direct feedback from the growing number of deployments. In each release, Knative implements these learnings based on new use-cases that are now being addressed with our platform.
The areas where we received the most feedback were: configuration and secret management.
As Knative maintains its predictable release cadence, the ability to preserve the settings from your previous installation (e.g. domain) became even more important. So, in the v0.4 release, Knative now preserves previously set ConfigMap values during the update process. Starting with subsequent releases, users should be able to simply apply the latest knative/serving release and continue using their previous settings.
With regards to secret management, Knative users have frequently asked for more flexibility with Secrets (for confidential data) and ConfigMaps (for non-confidential data). To address that need, Knative has now added support for mounting Secrets and ConfigMaps as volumes.
