This version of Platform9 Managed Kubernetes has upgraded the Kubernetes version from 1.8.x to 1.9.6. You can find more info on this version, along with its various features, in the blog for Kubernetes 1.9 release. Clusters can be upgraded to this Kubernetes version by using the “Upgrade Cluster” button in the Clusters view of the Infrastructure page of the Platform9 Clarity UI.
