Announcing Istio 0.3

Istio 0.3 announcement.

Nov 29, 2017

We’re pleased to announce the availability of Istio 0.3. Please see below for what’s changed.


Starting with 0.3, Istio is switching to a monthly release cadence. We hope this will help accelerate our ability to deliver timely improvements. See here for information on the state of individual features for this release.

This is a fairly modest release in terms of new features as the team put emphasis on internal infrastructure work to improve our velocity. Many bugs and smaller issues have been addressed and overall performance has been improved in a number of areas.
