Agones and Kubernetes supported versions
Game Servers is periodically tested against the four most recent Agones versions. This includes supporting each new Agones version shortly after its release.
Although earlier Agones versions are supported, they are not fully tested. Compatibility with earlier versions is not guaranteed; for best results, upgrade to the latest version.
Each version of Agones supports a specific version of Kubernetes. When a new version of Agones supports a new version of Kubernetes, it is explicitly called out in the Agones version release notes.
The following table lists the supported versions of Agones and their corresponding required Kubernetes versions for Game Servers:
|Agones version||Kubernetes version||Status|
|1.11||1.17||Supported and periodically tested.|
|1.10||1.16||Supported and periodically tested.|
|1.9||1.16||Supported and periodically tested.|
|1.8||1.15||Supported and periodically tested.|
|1.7||1.15||Supported. Not periodically tested, but no known issues. Consider upgrading to a more recent version.|
Support for other environments
You can attach any conformant Kubernetes cluster and manage game servers running in it using Game Servers.
