Ververica Platform 2.0.2¶
Release Date: 2019-12-20
- This release adds support for Flink 1.8.3, improves the installation process on OpenShift and fixes various bugs and security vulnerabilities.
Ververica Platform 2.0.2 adds our distribution of Apache Flink® 1.8.3 as well as an additional off-cycle bugfix release for Apache Flink® 1.9.1. The following new Docker images are available:
These images come with Apache Flink® bugfixes, improvements to Ververica Platform’s Kubernetes-based
HighAvailabilityServicesand numerous security vulnerability fixes.
Please check Ververica Platform Docker Images for all available Apache Flink® images and additional tags.
- The installation of Ververica Platform on OpenShift is now easier.
- Due to a regression in Ververica Platform 2.0, Deployments with restore strategy
LATEST_STATEdid behave exactly as with restore strategy
LATEST_SAVEPOINT. This is now fixed for Deployments using Flink Master Failover with Kubernetes. We recommend users relying on restore strategy
LATEST_STATEto switch from Zookeeper to Kubernetes for Flink Master Failover (see also Requirements for LATEST_STATE Restore Strategy).
- In the course of this bugfix,
LATEST_STATErestore strategy was improved to become more explicit and transparent for users: as before this restore strategy relies on Apache Flink® retained checkpoints. These are now listed in the “Snapshots”-tab (formerly “Savepoints”) of the web user interface, just like regular savepoints. By this, users can now manually reset their Deployments to retained checkpoints, too, and - more importantly - users can always see if a Deployment will recover from a retained checkpoint when using restore strategy
LATEST_STATE. Please see Requirements for LATEST_STATE Restore Strategy for details.
- Quotation marks in
Deployment.spec.template.spec.artifact.mainArgsare handled more robustly now. See Deployment Templates for details.
