OperatorAPI, provided as
operator.operators.operatorframework.ioby the new Operator Controller component, streamlines management of installed Operators by consolidating user-facing APIs into a single object. This empowers administrators and SREs to automate processes and define desired states by using GitOps principles.
CatalogAPI, provided by the new catalogd component, serves as the foundation for OLM 1.0, unpacking catalogs for on-cluster clients so that users can discover installable content, such as Operators and Kubernetes extensions. This provides increased visibility into all available Operator bundle versions, including their details, channels, and update edges.
