Feature highlights

Automatic backups

We’ve added the ability to back up your Gitpod application config (no workspace or database data is backed up!) via the KOTS Installation UI under the “snapshots” tab. You can even configure automatically scheduled backups. You can learn more in our backup and restore guide.

Configure additional registry credentials to use (base) workspace images from private registries

You can now use workspace images that are stored in private registries different from the main registry configured for Gitpod in your gitpod.yml and as an installation-wide default. This is useful when, for example, you want to pull private base images from one registry and then store the built images in another. For more information visit the relevant guide.

Breaking changes

  • 11954: remove custom labels from the pod selector labels. This removes this limitation so this is a long-term improvement. The impact of this should be handled transparently for you by the KOTS installer.
  • 12336: Removal of PodSecurityPolicies. These were deprecated from Kubernetes 1.21 and removed from 1.25. This allows Gitpod to run on Kubernetes 1.25+, which is scheduled for imminent release. If you have PodSecurityPolicies enabled in your cluster, we suggest you disable them as soon as possible.

Please refer to the 2022.08 upgrade guide in the documentation for details.
