For this release, we focused on improving our build and test infrastructures and increasing the quality of our tests. As a result, there are no new features for this month.
However, this release does include a large number of bug fixes and performance improvements.
Please note that this release includes preliminary support for the new v1alpha3 traffic management functionality. This functionality is still in a great deal of flux and there may be some breaking changes in 0.8. So if you feel like exploring, please go right ahead, but expect that this may change in 0.8 and beyond.
Our helm chart currently requires some workaround to apply the chart correctly, see 4701 for details.
