We are excited to announce the availability of Kubernetes version 1.19 for your clusters that are running in IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.
With the Kubernetes service, you can easily upgrade your clusters without the need for deep Kubernetes knowledge. When you deploy new clusters, the default Kubernetes version remains 1.18; you can also choose to immediately deploy version 1.19. Learn more about deploying clusters here.
It is important to note clusters that run deprecated or unsupported Kubernetes versions may not receive fixes for security vulnerabilities until they are updated to a supported version. Review the potential impact of each Kubernetes version update, and update your clusters today.
