Release Notes


Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG)
"Applying update deployment/calico-kube-controllers (apps/v1) namespace: kube-system" error while upgrading and using calico as cni in Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (87060) - Since the calico version for TKG 1.3.1 and TKG 1.4.x is the same (v3.11.3), failing to upgrade calico-kube-controllers does not affect the cluster status.

Tanzu Kubernetes Grid 1.4.x vSphere-CSI addon may fail to create daemonset (87699) -This issue is fixed in TKG 1.5 by adding a string prefix to the sha-256 value. For TKG 1.4.x, users will need to do some manual workaround.
