Podman Desktop 0.14 - Our Kind-est release yet!

We have been working on a Kind extension for a while now, and decided it is time to promote it into a release just in time for KubeCon and CloudNativeCon Europe!

We're especially excited about releasing Kind because it finally shows the full purpose of Podman Desktop: not just local container engines, but Kubernetes too. More importantly, providing tools that allow you to manage both environments and seamlessly move between them.

Some of these features were available in development mode over the last few releases, but since they are now in the release build, we will do a full roundup and talk about all the Kind features.

  • Kind Installation: Install Kind from the status bar
  • Manage Kind Clusters: Create and manage Kind clusters from Settings > Resources
  • Using Kind: Deploying YAML and sharing images to a cluster
  • Kind Ingress: Install a Contour ingress controller
  • UX and UI Improvements: Updated preferences and telemetry prompt
