Kubernetes v1.11.2 now available in IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

We are excited to announce the availability of Kubernetes v1.11.2 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 is now v1.10.x; you can also choose to immediately deploy v1.11.2.  Learn more about deploying clusters here.

Kubernetes support and updates

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service now supports the latest three releases of Kubernetes: 1.9.x, 1.10.x, and 1.11.x. Clusters that are running Kubernetes 1.8.x will not be a supported version as of September 28, 2018.

Review the potential impact of each Kubernetes version update, and update your clusters immediately. Note that you update from one version to the next most recent, such as 1.10.x to 1.11.x.
