We're proud to release Istio 1.0! Istio has been in development for nearly two years, and the 1.0 release represents a substantial milestone for us. All of our core features are now ready for production use.
These release notes describe what's different between Istio 0.8 and Istio 1.0. Istio 1.0 only has a few new features relative to 0.8 as most of the effort for this release went into fixing bugs and improving performance.
