# announcements
https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-kubernetes/releases/tag/v2.5.1 is out now, and has several important changes: * Improved typing support for the Python SDK (see also https://www.pulumi.com/blog/announcing-python-tooling-improvements/) * Fixed a regression for NodeJS .get methods introduced in v2.5.0 * Switched Helm v3 support to use the native library rather than shelling out to the CLI (NodeJS and Python in this release; .NET and Go coming soon)

@gorgeous-egg-16927 for my information, if I use Helm v3, does this mean I no longer need the CLI installed to run Pulumi?
Yes, that’s correct.

Is it also applicable for Helm v2?
No, the v2 support hasn’t changed. However, you should be able to switch to the v3 API without disruption because the resources are automatically aliased and backward compatible.
