Linode Kubernetes Engine v1.44.0


  • Kubernetes 1.24 is now available on LKE. Review the Kubernetes changelog and blog post.

    The dockershim component was removed in upstream Kubernetes starting at version 1.24 (see Dockershim Removal FAQ). The Linode Kubernetes Engine has kept this component installed on 1.24 LKE nodes in case any customer is reliant on that feature. When deploying a new LKE cluster using Kubernetes v1.24 (and later versions), the default container runtime has been changed to containerd.
