Exciting New Features ๐ŸŽ‰

SBOM Generation and Management

Harbor 2.11 introduces robust support for generating Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) either manually or automatically. This powerful feature enhances transparency and security by allowing users to view, download, and replicate SBOMs across different instances of Harbor.

For those handling massive concurrent pushes to a project, enabling the Automatically generate SBOM on push feature ensures smooth operation. Simply set core.quotaUpdateProvider: redis in values.yaml for Harbor-helm or core.quota_update_provider: redis in harbor.yml for Docker-compose installations. This tweak reduces overall resource consumption, optimizing database connections, CPU usage, and memory. Read more

Supporting OCI Distribution Spec v1.1.0 ๐ŸŽ‰

In this release, Harbor proudly supports OCI Distribution Spec v1.1.0. This update ensures that Harbor stays at the forefront of container image distribution, providing users with the latest standards and functionalities for seamless container management. Read more

Integration with VolcEngine Registry

One of the standout features in Harbor 2.11 is the seamless integration with VolcEngine Registry. Users can now effortlessly replicate images to and from the VolcEngine registry. This integration enhances interoperability and flexibility, allowing for a more versatile and dynamic Harbor ecosystem.

In our commitment to inclusivity and accessibility, Harbor 2.11 introduces a Korean language translation for the user interface. This update ensures that Korean-speaking users can navigate and utilize Harbor more efficiently, making the platform more user-friendly and globally accessible.

Enhancements ๐Ÿš€

Skip Transaction for POST /service/token

Performance improvements are always a priority. In Harbor 2.11, a significant enhancement is the ability to skip transactions for POST /service/token requests. Contributed by @liubin in #19339, this update streamlines token service operations, enhancing overall performance.

Updated Internationalization: French (fr-fr)

Thanks to @tostt in #19915, Harbor’s internationalization has been further refined with updates to the French (fr-fr) translations. This continuous improvement ensures that non-English speaking users have a smooth and coherent experience.

Known Issue

It’s worth noting a known issue affecting versions v2.10.x and v2.9.x. When performing pull-based replication from a GitLab registry to Harbor, users must be members of the source project in GitLab, even if it’s a public project. This membership requirement is essential to perform the replication successfully.
