1.18.0 - Release Candidate

This is the 1.18.0-rc release of Agones.

This release fixes a gRPC compatibility issue in the allocator service introduced in Agones 1.11.0. If you have a gRPC client that does not work with the allocator server, you can now disable the REST server or set it to a different port for better client compatibility.

The RollingUpdateOnReady feature has graduated to stable! And the new alpha feature SDKGracefulTermination makes Agones work better with preemptible VMs.

Note: Some helm parameters related to the allocator service were renamed to make them more consistent. In particular, if you were setting the agones.allocator.http.loadBalancerIP so that helm would automatically set up the server certificate, the parameter has been renamed to agones.allocator.service.loadBalancerIP. If you were setting this or any other parameters for the allocator service please check your helm scripts and ensure that you are using the new parameters.

Check the README for details on features, installation and usage.
