v0.41 - Added support for persistent volume claims + empty namespaces are now shown in gray

September 30, 2020

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.

The changes for the 0.41 release

  • View a workload's persistent volume claims, including which pod, containers and path they are bound to
  • Empty namespaces are now shown in gray and placed at the bottom of the namespace list
  • Updated look & feel for the sidebar
  • Hover over long namespaces in the sidebar to see their full name
  • Larger numbers such as 1024.00MiB will now be shown as 1.00GiB for brevity

Pricing Update

Many of you have also reached out to ask what our pricing model would be like going forward, and I want to take this opportunity to address it.

There will be two pricing tiers available - Free and Pro.

  • The Free plan will include all the features in the pro plan but limited to one cluster.
  • The Pro plan will be $10 USD / month or $100 / year with support and work with unlimited number of clusters. This will include all the features you've been using and future features like support for more resources and additional workflows.

When will this take effect? Starting next week, we will be rolling out the ability to pay for the Pro Plan but everyone will receive an additional 30 days to decide whether to upgrade to the Pro Plan or stay with the Free Plan.

I want to thank everyone on this early access list for sending us so much feedback and support us in creating a sustainable Kubernetes desktop client that can be here for the long-haul.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Thank you,
