v4.16.0

Release date: July 03, 2023

New Features

With release 4.16, our focus was on the Kubernetes Cluster Autoscaler. The cluster autoscaler automatically resizes the number of nodes based on the demands of your workload. When demand is low, the cluster autoscaler scales back down to the minimum size you designate. This can increase the availability of your workload when you need it while controlling costs. You don't need to add or remove nodes or over-provision your nodes manually.
