Greetings Linkerdenizens!

This is an edge release of Linkerd!  The latest stable release is stable-2.3.2.

To install this edge release, run: `curl https://run.linkerd.io/install-edge | sh`

This release adds support for the SMI Traffic Split API. Creating a TrafficSplit resource will cause Linkerd to split traffic between the specified backend services. Please see the spec for more details.

  • CLI
    • Added a check to install to prevent installing multiple control planes
      into different namespaces
    • Added support for passing a URL directly to linkerd inject (thanks
      @Pothulapati!)
    • Added the --all-namespaces flag to linkerd edges
  • Controller
    • Added support for the SMI TrafficSplit API which allows users to define
      traffic splits in TrafficSplit custom resources
  • Web UI
    • Improved UI for Edges table in dashboard by changing column names, adding a
      "Secured" icon and showing an empty Edges table in the case of no returned
      edges
As always, we're excited to hear your feedback. Please try the new release and 
send questions/comments to this mailing list, and report bugs via GitHub.
