Notable Changes

Check this Playlist for an overview of the most notable changes in this release: odo v3.8.0 (Sprint 232)

odo on Podman out of Experimental mode

Starting with odo v3.8.0, you can use the Podman platform for your development, without the need to enter the experimental mode of odo.

The following commands are supporting the Podman platform:

  • odo dev --platform podman
  • odo logs --platform podman
  • odo list component
  • odo describe component
  • odo delete component

Detecting in-cluster Devfile registries

odo traditionally gets the list of Devfile Registries to work with from a preference file saved on the user's machine. Starting with v3.8.0, odo will also fetch a list of Devfile registries defined into the cluster.

Support Exec command for Deploy

odo can now execute any command when running the deploy command.
