AlloyDB - AlloyDB for PostgreSQL now lets you monitor your AlloyDB instances using the AlloyDB System Insights dashboard or by using the Cloud Monitoring dashboard. AlloyDB now supports up to 64TiB storage per cluster in the following regions: us-west1 us-central1 us-east1 us-east4 europe-west1 asia-east1 asia-southwest1. Terraform support for AlloyDB is now generally available (GA).
Anthos Config Management - 1.17.0. The nomos command-line tool now requires the kubectl plugin gke-gcloud-auth-plugin to be installed to interact with GKE, and your KUBECONFIG must be configured to use it by calling gcloud container clusters get-credentials. Upgraded git-sync (Config Sync dependency for pulling from git) from v3.6.9 to v4.0.0 to pick up enhancements, such as improved efficiency and race condition fixes. Added a new field spec.mode in the NamespaceSelector CRD as a preview feature to support selecting namespace-scoped resources matching both statically-declared Namespaces in the source of truth and those dynamically present on the cluster. Added a new field spec.override.namespaceStrategy in the RootSync API to control whether Namespaces should be created implicitly or not if Namespace configs are missing from the source of truth. Added a new field spec.override.roleRefs in the RootSync API to customize root reconciler permissions other than cluster-admin. Added known_hosts support for Git connection over SSH in RootSync and RepoSync APIs. The constraint template library includes a new template: K8sRequireAdmissionController. Policy Controller bundles have been updated to the following versions: asm-policy-v0.0.1: 202311.0, cis-k8s-v1.5.1: 202311.0, cost-reliability-v2023: 202311.0, nist-sp-800-190: 202311.0, nist-sp-800-53-r5: 202311.0, nsa-cisa-k8s-v1.2: 202311.0, pci-dss-v3.2.1: 202311.0, policy-essentials-v2022: 202311.0, psp-v2022: 202311.0, pss-baseline-v2022: 202311.0, pss-restricted-v2022: 202311.0. The constraint template library's K8sNoExternalServices template now supports the "networking.gke.io/load-balancer-type": "Internal" annotation. Reduced Config Sync reconciler default CPU and memory requests on GKE Standard clusters. Fixed an issue with the nomos CLI not authenticating correctly when run inside a Kubernetes Pod.
