What's new in Containerd 2.0!

Containerd is nearing its eighth birthday this year! During its lifetime the community has supported eight major release branches/versions of the 1.x codebase, and even introduced a long-lived LTS release based on 1.6. But as we enter 2024, containerd is continuing with pre-GA releases of a new 2.0 line that includes new features, deprecates a long history of older functionality and hopefully provides a solid basis to take containerd into the future, or at least the next eight years!

This talk will walk attendees through new functionality in 2.0, what's changing, and how we continue to make containerd a core, reliable runtime with lots of extensibility. We'll highlight adopters and use cases both old and new, including the new WASM shim, new lazy loading technology, and many others.
