Dear LINSTOR on Kubernetes users

We just released version 1.1.0 of our operator! If you are new to the 
LINSTOR Operator, check out the users guide[1].

This release, we focused on integrating with existing authorization 
tools in your Kubernetes cluster. All containers are started with the 
minimum set of privileges required to run. We also provide integration 
for Pod Security Policies and Security Context Constraints if required.

Another improvement we made: You can now run the LINSTOR Controller as 
a deployment with multiple replicas! This requires a very recent 
version of the LINSTOR image, so make sure to update to LINSTOR v1.9.0 
in advance.

For details on upgrading from a previous version, check out the upgrade 
To get a full list of all available options, you can check out the 
settings reference[3].

The latest releases of linstor-operator are available here[4].
Upstream code can be found here[5].

Best regards,
