Red Hat unveiled updates across its portfolio of developer tools designed to help organizations build and deliver applications faster and more consistently across Kubernetes-based hybrid and multicloud environments. Some of the new offerings include:

  • The latest release of Red Hat OpenShift Pipelines introduces a technology preview of pipelines as code for Tekton, which gives customers the ability to define and manage their continuous integration (CI) pipelines through Git repositories and take advantage of GitOps workflows.
  • New Tekton Chains enhances OpenShift Pipelines, now providing built-in image signing capabilities that help to enhance reliability in the application delivery supply chain. Developers can also take advantage of user namespaces in pipelines to isolate tools that require root privileges and run them as non-root inside their application build and delivery pipelines without compromising on security functionality.
  • OpenShift GitOps lets customers declaratively manage their OpenShift clusters, applications, and compliance operations, using familiar Git workflows to automate, define, and version security practices in an easily auditable environment. The latest release includes Argo CD 2.3, bringing new sync and diff strategies, UI improvements, and performance enhancements.
  • ApplicationSets, which was previously available as a technology preview, is now generally available, providing a fully supported and stable way to automate the management of multiple ArgoCD applications across multiple clusters.
  • Red Hat also unveiled its next-generation in-browser and local development environments, Red Hat OpenShift DevSpaces 3 (formerly Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces) and Red Hat OpenShift Local 2 (formerly Red Hat CodeReady Containers).

The Envoy Gateway (EG) project launched. Under the auspices of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), Envoy Gateway is a new effort within the Envoy proxy open-source project to simplify Envoy use in cloud-native application development. Specifically, Envoy Gateway will reduce existing, redundant efforts around Envoy and make it much easier for application developers to use Envoy as a basic API gateway “out of the box” and as a Kubernetes Ingress controller. Exposing a simplified set of APIs and implementing the Kubernetes Gateway API, EG makes it easier to extend Envoy.
