A big focus in the 1.7 release is extensibility. This allows Kubernetes to expand its scope and functionality without “bloating” the project, said Brockmeier. New features that focus on extensibility include Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs), which allow extension of the Kubernetes API to provide features that look like first-class APIs to users. CRDs is in beta for Kubernetes 1.7.
