Release Notes

🚨 Breaking or Notable

💫 New Features & Changes

  • A new flag is introduced queueproxy.resource-defaults that sets resource requests, limits for Queue Proxy when enabled (applies only to cpu and memory). (#14039, @skonto)
  • Activator now has a separate service account, reducing its privileges to the required minimum. (#14133, @davidhadas)
