We are proud to announce that we just released version 2.1 of Talos.

On Talos v2.1, one of the main focus is to simplify the way you move and manage your applications on containerised environments and on mixed environments, with both containers and legacy systems. With that in mind, we are introducing a large number of new features as, for instance: new OpenShift Integration, providing ability to push images to OpenShift and manage OpenShift resources; and improvements on our Docker Integration, providing additional management capabilities to your Docker environment from within Talos.

To know more about Docker and OpenShift Integration features, find below a demonstration video:

As always, we are eager to collaborate with you and receive your feedback and suggestions to help us improve and evolve Talos, so feel free to reach out to us.

Below is the complete list of new features.
