1.6.0 - Player Tracking, Kubernetes 1.15, Node.js SDK Updates

This is the v1.6.0 release of Agones.

This release includes several breaking changes to be aware of:

  • Upgrade to required Kubernetes version to 1.15
  • The Alpha Multi Cluster Allocator API has been renamed, refactored slightly and moved to Stable. It is worth noting that Multi Cluster Allocation as a whole (installation, setup, etc) is still in beta, and may change in the future.
  • The node.js SDK has switched to grpc-js. It should be backward compatible, but please let us know if there are issues.

We are also excited to have a new major feature release of Player Tracking - keep track of which players are connected to you GameServers and what your GameServer capacities are!

Check the README for details on features, installation and usage.
