Changes Amazon EKS now supports configuring your cluster's service CIDR during cluster creation.
Changes Adding support for customer provided EC2 launch templates and AMIs to EKS Managed Nodegroups. Also adds support for Arm-based instances to EKS Managed Nodegroups.
Changes Adding new error codes: Ec2SubnetInvalidConfiguration and NodeCreationFailure for Nodegroups in EKS
Changes Adding new error code IamLimitExceeded for Nodegroups in EKS
Changes Amazon EKS now supports adding a KMS key to your cluster for envelope encryption of Kubernetes secrets.
Changes Adding new error codes for Nodegroups in EKS
Changes Amazon EKS now supports restricting access to the API server public endpoint by applying CIDR blocks
Changes Introducing Amazon EKS with Fargate. Customers can now use Amazon EKS to launch pods directly onto AWS Fargate, the serverless compute engine built for containers on AWS.
Changes Introducing Amazon EKS managed node groups, a new feature that lets you easily provision worker nodes for Amazon EKS clusters and keep them up to date using the Amazon EKS management console, CLI, and APIs.
Changes This release lets customers add tags to an Amazon EKS cluster. These tags can be used to control access to the EKS API for managing the cluster using IAM. The Amazon EKS TagResource API allows customers to associate tags with their cluster. Customers can list tags for a cluster using the ListTagsForResource API and remove tags from a cluster with the UntagResource API. Note: tags are specific to the EKS cluster resource, they do not propagate to other AWS resources used by the cluster.
Changes Amazon EKS DescribeCluster API returns a new OIDC issuer field that can be used to create OIDC identity provider for IAM for Service Accounts feature.
Changes Added support to enable or disable publishing Kubernetes cluster logs in AWS CloudWatch
Changes Added support to control private/public access to the Kubernetes API-server endpoint
Changes Added support for updating kubernetes version of Amazon EKS clusters.
Changes Amazon EKS DescribeCluster API returns a platformVersion attribute which allows you to identify the features that are currently enabled for your clusters. The Amazon EKS platform version represents capabilities of the cluster control plane, such as which Kubernetes API server flags are enabled, as well as the current Kubernetes patch version.
Changes Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a fully managed service that makes it easy to deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications using Kubernetes on AWS. Amazon EKS runs the Kubernetes control plane for you across multiple AWS availability zones to eliminate a single point of failure. Amazon EKS is certified Kubernetes conformant so you can use existing tooling and plugins from partners and the Kubernetes community. Applications running on any standard Kubernetes environment are fully compatible and can be easily migrated to Amazon EKS.
