We’re proud to announce support for Kubernetes 1.5.2 in the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes. This is a pure upstream distribution of Kubernetes, designed to be easily deployable to public clouds, on-premises (ie vsphere, openstack), bare metal, and developer laptops. Kubernetes 1.5.2 is a patch release comprised of mostly bugfixes, and we encourage you to check out the release notes.
Here’s the simplest way to get a Kubernetes 1.5.2 cluster up and running on an Ubuntu 16.04 system:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:juju/stable sudo apt-add-repository ppa:conjure-up/next sudo apt update sudo apt install conjure-up conjure-up kubernetes
During the installation conjure-up will ask you what cloud you want to deploy on and prompt you for the proper credentials. If you’re deploying to local containers (LXD) see these instructions for localhost-specific considerations.
For production grade deployments and cluster lifecycle management it is recommended to read the full Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes documentation.

With your kubernetes model selected, you can deploy the bundle to upgrade your cluster if on the 1.5.x series of kubernetes. At this time releases before 1.5.x have not been tested. Depending on which bundle you have previously deployed, run:
juju deploy canonical-kubernetes
juju deploy kubernetes-core
If you have made tweaks to your deployment bundle, such as deploying additional worker nodes as a different label, you will need to manually upgrade the components. The following command list assumes you have made no tweaks, but can be modified to work for your deployment.
juju upgrade-charm kubernetes-master juju upgrade-charm kubernetes-worker juju upgrade-charm etcd juju upgrade-charm flannel juju upgrade-charm easyrsa juju upgrade-charm kubeapi-load-balancer
This will upgrade the charm code, and the resources to kubernetes 1.5.2 release of the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes.
The fix for #190 is a larger change that has landed in the bundle-canonical-kubernetes repository. Instead of maintaining several copies across several repositories of a single use-case bundle; we are now assembling the CDK based bundles as fragments (un-official nomenclature).
This affords us the freedom to rapidly iterate on a CDK based bundle and include partner technologies, such as different SDN vendors, Storage backend components, and other integration points. Keeping our CDK bundle succinct, and allowing the more complex solutions to be assembled easily, reliably, and repeatedly. This does change the contribution guidelines for end users.
Any changes to the core bundle should be placed in its respective fragment under the fragments directory. Once this has been placed/merged, the primary published bundles can be assembled by running
./bundle in the root of the repository. This process has been outlined in the repository README.md
We look forward to any feedback on how opaque/transparent this process is, and if it has any useful applications outside of our own release management process. The
./bundle python script is still very much geared towards our own release process, and how to assemble bundles targeted for the CDK. However we’re open to generalizing them and encourage feedback/contributions to make this more useful to more people.
We’re normally found in these Slack channels and attend these sig meetings regularly:
Operators are an important part of Kubernetes, we encourage you to participate with other members of the Kubernetes community!
We also monitor the Kubernetes mailing lists and other community channels, feel free to reach out to us. As always, PRs, recommendations, and bug reports are welcome: https://github.com/juju-solutions/bundle-canonical-kubernetes
