Kubernetes 1.27.2    
API Change:

  • Added error handling for seccomp localhost configurations that do not properly set a localhostProfile ]
  • Fixed an issue where kubelet does not set case-insensitive headers for http probes.
  • Revised the comment about the feature-gate level for PodFailurePolicy from alpha to beta


  • Kubernetes is now built with Go 1.20.4

Failing Test:

  • Allow Azure Disk e2es to use newer topology labels if available from nodes

Bug or Regression:

  • CVE-2023-27561 CVE-2023-25809 CVE-2023-28642: Bump fix runc v1.1.4 -> v1.1.5
  • During device plugin allocation, resources requested by the pod can only be allocated if the device plugin has registered itself to kubelet AND healthy devices are present on the node to be allocated. If these conditions are not sattsfied, the pod would fail with UnexpectedAdmissionError error.
  • Fallback from OpenAPI V3 to V2 when the OpenAPI V3 document is invalid or incomplete.
  • Fix bug where listOfStrings.join() in CEL expressions resulted in an unexpected internal error.
  • Fix incorrect calculation for ResourceQuota with PriorityClass as its scope.
  • Fix performance regression in scheduler caused by frequent metric lookup on critical code path.
  • Fix: the volume is not detached after the pod and PVC objects are deleted
  • Fixed a memory leak in the Kubernetes API server that occurs during APIService processing.
  • Fixes a race condition serving OpenAPI content
  • Fixes a regression in kubectl and client-go discovery when configured with a server URL other than the root of a server.
  • Fixes bug where an incomplete OpenAPI V3 document can cause a nil-pointer crash. Ensures fallback to OpenAPI V2 endpoint for errors retrieving OpenAPI V3 document
  • Kubeadm: fix a bug where file copy(backup) could not be executed correctly on Windows platform during upgrade
  • Kubelet terminates pods correctly upon restart, fixing an issue where pods may have not been fully terminated if the kubelet was restarted during pod termination.
  • Number of errors reported to the metric storage_operation_duration_seconds_count for emptyDir decreased significantly because previously one error was reported for each projected volume created.
  • Resolves a spurious "Unknown discovery response content-type" error in client-go discovery requests by tolerating extra content-type parameters in API responses
  • Reverted NewVolumeManagerReconstruction and SELinuxMountReadWriteOncePod feature gates to disabled by default to resolve a regression of volume reconstruction on kubelet/node restart
  • Static pods were taking extra time to be restarted after being updated. Static pods that are waiting to restart were not correctly counted in kubelet_working_pods.
  • [KCCM] service controller: change the cloud controller manager to make providerID a predicate when synchronizing nodes. This change allows load balancer integrations to ensure that the providerID is set when configuring load balancers and targets.

Maximum HTTP Response Header Size: 

  • You can now limit the maximum HTTP response header size if you are using Tomcat or Jetty. For Tomcat you can use the server.tomcat.max-http-response-header-size property and for Jetty you can use server.jetty.max-http-response-header-size. By default, response headers are limited to 8kb.
