- Fixed a bug triggered by node restart causing Pods to receive incorrect configuration (Issue 20676).
- Improved Istio CNI robustness. Previously, when a node restarted, new pods may be created before the CNI was setup, causing pods to be created without
iptablesrules configured (Issue 14327).
- Fixed MCP metrics to include the size of the MCP responses, rather than just requests (Issue 21049).
