Cluster-API-Provider-Packet v0.7.0 Release

Equinix Employee

Version 0.7.0 of cluster-api-provider-packet, introduces metro level support vs facility level in accordance with the soon-to-be updated Metal API. Users of previous versions will want to take advantage of this immediately. The basic requirements to upgrade your existing clusters can be found here. Please work with your Equinix support team to determine the best migration path for your architecture. Assistance can also be found in the Community Slack and Community site. Read more at our Metros Quick Reference and see the facility deprecation announcement.  

*Please note that if devices are already in the correct metros you’ve specified, no disruption will happen to clusters or their devices. As with any production change, test your changes before applying them to clusters in production. 

In addition to metro-level support, this release installs the latest cloud-provider-equinix-metal v3.6.1 by default and is built on golang version 1.19 and cluster-api 1.3. The default OS used is Ubuntu 20.04 and kube-vip is updated to v0.5.12 in the kube-vip flavor templates.  

Lastly, the CI workflow has been refactored with caching removed and updated tests considering cluster-api 1.3 dependencies.
