Hello Packer Community,

The Packer team is excited to announce the release of Packer v1.7.5. This release contains improvements to HCL2 support in Packer, plugin upgrades to bring in some of the great community contributions, and, lastly, some core refactors for connecting Packer to the HCP Packer registry. For a complete list of changes please see the Packer CHANGELOG.

Notable Changes:
  • The hcl2_upgrade command can successfully migrate the strftime function from JSON to HCL2. 
  • File provisioner has a new `content` attribute that can be used for specifying the source contents to be copied to some remote file. 
Notable Bug Fixes: 
  • Fix `{{packer_version}}` interpolation regression for HCL and JSON templates.
  • hcl2_upgrade will no longer panic when executed against a non-existent file. 
  • packer-plugin-azure has been updated to address a vulnerable dependency in azure-sdk-for-go.
  • packer-plugin-googlecompute has been updated to fix an issue when building an instance via an IAP tunnel.

As always, we want to hear from you if you have any issues or ideas.

The Packer team
