The Cilium project is excited to announce the general availability of Cilium 1.12

Cilium 1.12 GA: Cilium Service Mesh and other major new features for enterprise Kubernetes

The 1.12 release of Cilium includes significant features that were donated by Datadog, F5, Form3, Isovalent, Microsoft,, The New York Times, and many other authors. Many managed Kubernetes systems, including those from Google Cloud and AWS, as well as organizations like Adobe, Bell Canada, and IKEA, have adopted Cilium as the de-facto standard for cloud native networking and security.

A Kubernetes-Native Service Mesh with Optional Sidecars

The vision for Cilium Service Mesh is a service mesh built using native Kubernetes resources, just like Cilium’s ClusterMesh uses Kubernetes Services and NetworkPolicy to perform multi-cluster connectivity. Today we are announcing the availability of the first stable release of a new exciting option to run Cilium as a service mesh completely without sidecars while supporting a variety of different control plane options. It complements the already existing sidecar-based Istio integration that has been available as part of Cilium so far. To read the full article, click here.
