A big thank you to so many of you who sent in feedback from last week's All Resources release.
This week, we are prioritizing on the issues many of you have seen inside Infra App and other Kubernetes clients -- stagnant data refreshes, especially from clusters running on Azure.
On Microsoft Azure, there is a specific issue - https://github.com/Azure/AKS/issues/1755. We've made changes to Infra App to address this problem on our end. The improvements will also mean improved connectivity with other cloud providers.
If you still notice any issues, please let us know. We want to make sure you're getting a great experience from us and your cloud provider.
The changes in 0.43 release:
This week we launched Infra App 0.42. It's our biggest update yet with All Resources tab and so much more quality of life changes (see full changelog below). Now you can easily search and find the CRDs, Secrets, and other resources you care about directly in Infra App as you troubleshoot or want to check the status / resource utilization quickly after a change.
In this release, we've tweaked the wording of our left-hand navigation bar to better reflect how many of you use our app today with Browse for browsing all your Kubernetes resources and applications.
Through this view, we are introducing two top navigation tabs to help you view the often important types of workloads (Applications tab), and all the other Kubernetes resources (All Resources tab). If you are looking to filter for particular namespaces, you can select a namespace to filter for on the left navigation bar.
For specific resources like a Secret, we automatically hide the sensitive data. In this case, a "Reveal & Edit" button will be available to view the data. This way, if you are sharing screenshots or screen sharing via Zoom calls, your secrets are not leaked unless purposefully clicking the reveal button.
The Utilization tab replaces the Cluster tab as we improve Infra App to help you view your resource utilization all the way from cluster-level to individual pods level.
Infra App v0.41 with the ability to view Persistent Volume Claims directly in the workload's page including which pod, containers and the path they are bound to. This feature should allow you to better troubleshoot PVCs much faster in Infra App by seeing the related resources in one place.
For this release we are also updating the look & feel of the sidebar. Empty namespaces are now shown in gray and placed at the bottom of the namespace list. In the case that you have a very long namespace, it will be shown if you hover your mouse cursor over it.
In this update, we've fixed some of the bugs reported by many of you. Please do not hesitate to reply and let me know if you have any feature requests / bug reports. Thank you for supporting us.
Wow, it's been 40 official releases and many more private builds. I want to take the time to thank you for supporting us along the way. I can't wait to share more exciting updates with you in the future.
For this v0.40 release we're rolling out the ability to see the number of times a Kubernetes pod has restarted to help your use case of troubleshooting, and being able to see which pods have been misbehaving in your system.
We've also streamlined the design of the main Workloads view to let you see more workloads on smaller screens.
If you have more feature requests or bug reports, please do not hesitate to reply and let me know.
For the Infra App v0.39 release, we have focused on making improvements in the initial workload loading time and a couple of accessibility tweaks.
We are continuing to work hard to address performance issues on larger clusters. Thank you for giving us feedback to iterate on this with us. We have so many more features to come!
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
