Knative & Linkerd Support, JSON logging, and more in Ambassador 0.73

We’re releasing Ambassador 0.73 today, with native support for the Linkerd 2.0 service mesh and the Knative serverless platform. Ambassador focuses on the ingress (“north-south”) use case for traffic management within modern cloud-native applications, and accordingly we’ve had integrations for quite some time with service meshes that focus on the service-to-service (“east-west”) use cases, such as Istio, Consul, and Linkerd. At the recent KubeCon EU, we saw an increased amount of interest around Linkerd, and also some potentially avoidable friction with the integration, and so we’ve improved the operator experience around this (more details below).
