For the Victoria release, OpenStack received over 20,000 code changes by 794 developers from 160 different organizations and over 45 countries. OpenStack is supported by a large, global open source community and with this pace of development, continues to be one of the top three open source projects in the world in terms of active contributions, along with the Linux kernel and Chromium.
Among the many enhancements provided in Victoria, three highlights are:
Tacker: Tacker enables Kubernetes resources (e.g. Pod) to be deployed with ETSI NFV-SOL 003 Instantiate VNF operation as VNF instance. Now, most of the Kubernetes resources utilizing v1 API are supported.
Octavia: Octavia users can now use PROXY protocol version 2 for pools, improving the performance of establishing new connections when using IPv6.
Ironic: The communication flow for agent token (added in Ussuri). Combined with the automatic agent TLS feature, edge deployments experience improved security.
Kuryr: Information about OpenStack resources created by Kuryr are now easily readable through Kubernetes API
Thank you to the almost 800 contributors from more than 45 countries and 160 organizations that contributed to the OpenStack Victoria release.
