Release Highlights

Support Custom HTTP Request Routing from Edge to Cloud through ServiceBus for Applications

A HTTP server is added to ServiceBus, to support custom http request routing from edge to cloud for applications. This simplifies the rest api access with http server on the cloud while client is in the edge.

Refer to the links for more details. (#3254, #3301)

Support CloudCore to run independently of the Kubernetes Master host

CloudCore now supports to run independently of the Kubernetes Master host, iptablesmanager has been added as an independent component, users only need to deploy the iptablesmanager to Kubernetes Master host, which now can add the iptable rules for Cloud-Edge tunnel automatically

Refer to the links for more details. (#3265)

EdgeMesh add tls and encryption security

EdgeMesh’s tunnel module adds tls and encryption security capabilities. These features bring more secure protection measures to the user’s edgemesh-server component and reduce the risk of edgemesh-server being attacked.

Refer to the links for more details. (EdgeMesh#127)

Enhanced the ease of use of EdgeMesh

EdgeMesh has many improvements in ease of use. Now users can easily deploy EdgeMesh’s server and agent components with a single command of helm. At the same time, the restriction on service port naming is removed, and the docker0 dependency is removed, making it easier for users to use EdgeMesh.

Refer to the links for more details. (EdgeMesh#123, EdgeMesh#126, EdgeMesh#136, EdgeMesh#175)

Support containerized deployment of CloudCore using Helm

CloudCore now supports containerized deployment using Helm, which provides better containerized deployment experience.

Refer to the links for more details. (#3265)

Support compiled into rpm package and installed on OS such as openEuler using yum package manager

KubeEdge now supports compiled into rpm package and installed on OS such as openEuler using yum package manager.

Refer to the links for more details. (#3089, #3171)

In addition to the above new features, KubeEdge v1.9 also includes the following enhancements:

  • Rpminstaller: add support for openEuler (#3089)

  • Replaced ‘kubeedge/pause’ with multi arch image (#3114)

  • Make meta server addr configurable (#3119)

  • Added iptables to Dockerfile and made cloudcore privileged (#3129)

  • Added CustomInterfaceEnabled and CustomInterfaceName for edgecore (#3130)

  • Add experimental feature (#3131)

  • Feat(edge): node ephemeral storage info (#3157)

  • Support envFrom configmap in edge pods (#3176)

  • Update golang to 1.16 (#3190)

  • Metaserver: support shutdown server graceful (#3239)

  • Support labelselector for metaserver (#3262)

Future Outlook

With the release of v1.9, KubeEdge supports custom HTTP request routing from Edge to Cloud through ServiceBus for applications, supports CloudCore running independently of the Kubernetes Master host, supports containerized deployment of CloudCore using Helm, supports tls and encryption security and the ease of use of EdgeMesh. Thanks to Huawei, China Unicom, DaoCloud, Zhejiang University SEL Lab, ARM and other organizations for their contributions, as well as all community contributors for their support!

The community plans to further improve the user experience and the stability of KubeEdge in subsequent versions and create the best “open source” intelligent edge computing platform for everyone to freely use.
