We are proud to announce the latest release of KFD - Kubernetes Fury Distribution, in which we have added support for Kubernetes 1.26.x, introduced the new furyctl OnPremises provider, along with a new feature: Plugins.
furyctl OnPremises provider
We heard you when you asked to expand Furyctl installation providers to smooth the installation of KFD also on on-premises scenarios.
Thanks to the new OnPremises provider, our users will be able to install a KFD Cluster on preconfigured VMs.
If you want to deepen or try it, you can find a full getting started guide here: https://github.com/sighupio/fury-getting-started/tree/main/fury-on-vms
furyctl Plugins feature
In order to provide an ever-increasing range of functionalities and meet the needs of our users, we have introduced the Plugins functionality.
This new feature is responsible for installing additional packages (such as Kustomize or Helm) in addition to all the distribution packages.
This way, you can have ALL the cluster configurations in a single
furyctl.yaml file, organized and standardized.
The documentation of this feature can be found here: https://github.com/sighupio/furyctl#plugins
This feature has been added to all the available providers:
Plugins are also necessary for installing storageClasses on OnPremises clusters, which in turn enable the installation of all stateful applications from the distribution. By default, the OnPremises provider, if it doesn't find a storageClass during installation, will not install those components that require persistent volumes to function. The plugin function unlocks the possibility, for example, to install also a storage provider on your OnPremises cluster.
Compatibility with Kubernetes 1.26
We maintain a strong commitment to keeping on top of the latest Kubernetes versions and all the community tools in order to provide a production-ready and full-fledged Kubernetes Distribution.
This latest release brings KFD's compatibility to Kubernetes version 1.26, updating all core modules and introducing add-on management on EKS.
If you want to go in-depth, you can find the complete list of changelogs compared to version 1.25 here: https://docs.kubernetesfury.com/docs/releases/
Our Team continuously strives to support the community, respond to new business needs, and maintain our distribution update.
