Release notes for kOps 1.30 series

⚠ kOps 1.30 is in beta! ⚠

Significant changes

Version updates

kOps 1.30 adds support for kubernetes 1.30, and updates of most of the built-in components.

This release also updates to the next generation AWS SDK (aws-sdk-go-v2), though we do not expect user-visible changes from this update.

Improved support for Azure

kOps on Azure has been significantly improved in this release.

Embedded asset hashes

Hashes for many kubernetes assets have been embedded into the kOps binary. When using a well-known asset, we no longer need to download the hash from a well-known location, which slightly speeds up kOps cluster creation, and also creates a stronger chain-of-trust.

Breaking changes

None known.

Known Issues

None known.


  • Support for Kubernetes version 1.24 is deprecated and will be removed in kOps 1.30.

  • Support for Kubernetes version 1.25 is deprecated and will be removed in kOps 1.31.
