rkt roadmap

This document defines a high level roadmap for rkt development. The dates below should not be considered authoritative, but rather indicative of the projected timeline of the project. The milestones defined in GitHub represent the most up-to-date state of affairs.

rkt's version 1.0 release marks the command line user interface and on-disk data structures as stable and reliable for external development.

Ongoing projects

  • Kubernetes CRI: adapting rkt to offer first-class implementation of the Kubernetes Container Runtime Interface.
  • OCI native support: supporting OCI specs natively in rkt.
  • appc phase-out: following OCI evolution and stabilization, appc will be naturally deprecated and phased-out.
