The newly updated CNCF CI V2.2.0 dashboard update adds third-party validation of builds, deployments and end-to-end testing for CNCF’s Graduated and Incubating projects.

The CNCF CI status dashboard continually validates each project for any commit on stable and head that’s running on Kubernetes clusters provisioned to a bare metal environment. The results of each testing stage are then published to the status dashboard.

The upcoming iterations of the status dashboard will focus on supporting a sustainable and scalable project ecosystem and will integrate with a project’s active CI system.
