Autoscaling

Activator Subsetting (thanks @vagababov)

We compute a subset of Activator pods for each revision in a consistent manner, rather than assigning all. This noticeably improves load balancing for smaller revisions with small container concurrency values.

  • Improved pod scraping latency by directly scraping pods if available #7804 (thanks @vagababov)
  • Autoscaling Documentation (thanks @markusthoemmes)
  • Last pod retention period #7931 (thanks @vagababov)
  • Unify Activator and QueueProxy stats reporting libraries and report more precise concurrency values from Activator #7775 (thanks @makusthoemmes)
  • Add a global setting which prohibits setting container concurrency to 0 #7932 (thanks @julz)
  • Progress deadline is now a configurable parameter #7649 (thanks @vagababov)
  • Burst capacity is calculated over the panic window now (thanks @vagababov)
  • General code cleanup, test stabilization, etc thanks (@julz, @markusthoemmes, @vagababov, @nak3)

Core API

  • Our Revision shape has slightly changed to support multiple containers in the future #7373 (thanks @savitaashture)
    • Revision.Status.ImageDigest is deprecated and the digest will appear in Revision.Status.ContainerStatus.
  • Enable K8s dry-run as an experimental feature to provide faster feedback when your template won't create a valid Pod #3425 (thanks @whaught)
    • These are currently opt-in via the current annotation (may change)
    • features.knative.dev/podspec-dryrun: enabled
    • features.knative.dev/podspec-dryrun: strict
    • Strict mode will return failures if dry-run is not supported. This happens when webhooks have side-effects.
  • Webhook infrastructure now supports receiving a callback when a deletion occurs pkg/#1219 (thanks @whaught)
  • Some lingering and deprecated v1alpha1 properties have been removed from our go types
    • Revision's concurrencyModel #7893 (thanks @vagabov)
    • Revision's buildName and buildRef #7896 (thanks @vagabov)
  • Reduced some churn reconciling deleted objects when they were tracking dependent resources #7679 (thanks @markusthoemmes)
  • genreconciler now allows developers to override the controller’s name pkg/#1137 (thanks @shashwathi @andrew-su)

Networking

  • Remove /var/log symlink logic from the queue proxy #7882 (thanks @dprotaso)
    • /var/log log capture now supports containers that aren't named user-container.
  • Add support for labels in DomainTemplate #7647 (thanks @duglin)
    • This allows users to create custom URLs via the template and to choose custom domains in the config-domain configMap via labels.
  • net-certmanager repository setup and code migration (thanks @ZhiminXiang)
    • Cert-manager related resources for AutoTLS are generated and released from the net-certmanager repository now.
  • KIngress no longer uses retries #7842 (thanks @tcnghia)
  • Operation name for activator's proxy span and queue-proxy's span are renamed to {activator,queue}_proxy #7934 (thanks @nak3)
  • Ingress conformance test for visibility and path #7666 (thanks @andrew-su)
  • Better timeouts for the ingress prober #7702 (thanks @JRBANCEL)
  • For ingress prober, use default http.Transport and context with timeout for better timeouts #7702 (thanks @JRBANCEL)
  • Use "go mod" within net-istio, net-contour, net-certmanager, net-http01 (thanks @andrew-su, @mattmoor, @tcnghia, @ZhiminXiang)
  • Propagate status from KCert to Route #7163 (thanks @nak3)
