Guides / Update Guides / Releases / 2023-01

This page is lists all the updates to the Gruntwork Infrastructure as Code Library that were released in 2023-01. For instructions on how to use these updates in your code, check out the updating documentation.

Here are the repos that were updated:



Published: 1/2/2023 | Release notes

This release switches repo-copier to using your locally installed git instance rather than the embedded go-git library. This is because of memory consumption and stack overflow issues with go-git. Please ensure you have git installed locally and in your PATH whenever running repo-copier going forward!

  • Expose additional chart configurations for external-dns.


Published: 1/5/2023 | Modules affected: eks-cluster-control-plane, eks-k8s-cluster-autoscaler, eks-container-logs, eks-alb-ingress-controller | Release notes

  • eks-cluster-control-plane [BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE]
  • eks-k8s-cluster-autoscaler [BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE]
  • eks-container-logs [BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE]
  • eks-alb-ingress-controller
  • eks-aws-auth-merger
  • eks-fargate-container-logs
  • eks-k8s-external-dns
  • eks-k8s-role-mapping

The default version of Kubernetes installed by the module has been updated to 1.24. As a result of this, the default version of addons were updated to support installation into 1.24. Specifically:

  • cluster-autoscaler: The default app version has been updated to 1.24.0.
  • eks-alb-ingress-controller: The default app version and chart version have been updated to 2.4.5 and 1.4.6.
  • eks-k8s-external-dns: The default chart version has been updated to 6.12.2.
  • eks-container-logs: As EKS ended support for Dockershim, a new cri parser was added to Fluent Bit configuration in eks-container-logs.
  • kubernetes provider constraints needed to be updated as Kubernetes no longer creates a default Secret for ServiceAccount.
  • kubernetes API version was removed in 1.24, so all examples were updated to v1.

If you wish to maintain backward compatibility with your existing setup without upgrading the Kubernetes version, you will want to configure the kubernetes_version parameter to the version of Kubernetes you are currently using. Note that 1.24 requires kubergrunt version 0.10.0 and above.

If you wish to maintain backward compatibility with your existing setup of the cluster autoscaler, you will want to configure the cluster_autoscaler_version input variable to what you are currently using. This should match semantic version of your EKS cluster Kubernetes version. Refer to the gcr repository and look for the latest version for your kubernetes version.

If you wish to maintain backward compatibility with your existing setup of the EKS container logs, you will want to set the use_cri_parser_conf input variable to false.
