Chapter 2. Notable enhancements
2.1. FIPS support
If enabled in the operating system for your OpenShift cluster and its worker nodes, FIPS is supported. See Installing FIPS on OpenShift.
2.2. Initial support of backup and restore
To support level 3 of the Operator Framework capability levels, the CodeReady Workspaces Operator can back up and restore the operand.
To start a backup or restore operation, choose one of the available methods:
- Use the crwctl command-line tool.
- Create a dedicated CustomResource: CheClusterBackup or CheClusterRestore.
The backup contains CodeReady Workspaces server components. Workspace objects for users are not included.
2.3. Multi-root mode for Che-Theia
With this update, Che-Theia supports one unique mode: multi-root. The transitional feature toggle
multiRoot: 'on' in a devfile has been removed.
2.4. Specifying custom labels and annotations to user namespaces
With this update, the CodeReady Workspaces server supports setting custom labels and annotations for user namespaces.
