We are excited to announce the availability of OpenShift version 4.7 for your clusters that are running in Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud.

With our fully managed OpenShift service, you can easily upgrade your clusters without the need for deep OpenShift knowledge. When you deploy new clusters, the default OpenShift version remains 4.6; you can also choose to immediately deploy OpenShift version 4.7. Learn more about deploying clusters here.

OpenShift version 4.7

In addition to all the great OpenShift features provided in this release, Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud version 4.7 also includes updates to Calico, numerous security updates and more. See the Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud version 4.7 changelog for details.

OpenShift support and updates

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud now supports OpenShift versions 4.6 and 4.7. Clusters running versions 4.3 or 4.4 are unsupported. Clusters running version 4.5 are now deprecated and will tentatively be unsupported on 1 September 2021. Clusters running version 3.11 are already deprecated. It is important to note clusters that run deprecated or unsupported OpenShift versions may not receive fixes for security vulnerabilities. Review the potential impacts and migrate or upgrade your clusters today.
