Announcing Istio 1.7.2

Patch Release

This release contains bug fixes to improve robustness. This release note describes what’s different between Istio 1.7.1 and Istio 1.7.2


  • Fixed locality load balancer settings being applied to inbound clusters unnecessarily. (Issue #27293)

  • Fixed unbounded cardinality of Istio metrics for CronJob job workloads. (Issue #24058)

  • Fixed setting the ISTIO_META_REQUESTED_NETWORK_VIEW environment variable for a proxy will filter out endpoints that aren’t part of the comma-separated list of networks. This should be set to the local-network on the ingress-gateway used for cross-network traffic to prevent odd load balancing behavior. (Issue #26293)

  • Fixed issues with WorkloadEntry when the Service or WorkloadEntry is updated after creation. (Issue #27183),(Issue #27151),(Issue #27185)
