The core ClusterAPI providers will support upgrade from v1alpha3 and v1alpha4 to v1beta1. Thus, conversions of API types from v1alpha3 and v1alpha4 to v1beta1 have been implemented. If other providers also want to support the upgrade from v1alpha3 and v1alpha4, the same conversions have to be implemented.

- Ensure your template resources support
template.metafields. Refer to the cluster and machine provider contract docs for more information. This is not required, but is recommended for consistency across the infrastructure providers as Cluster API graduates and opens up use cases where coordinating controllers can use labels and annotations from template infrastructure resources to do external provisioning or provide configuration information, e.g. IPAM support for vSphere / bare-metal.
The v1beta1 release uses “leases” instead of “configmapsleases” as the LeaderElectionResourceLock for all managers leader election including the core controllers, bootstrap and control plane kubeadm and the Docker provider. This has no user facing impact on brand-new clusters created as v1beta1. For Cluster API running clusters upgraded through clusterctl this should be ok given that we stop the old controllers. Users relying on custom upgrades procedures should ensure a migration to v1alpha4 (multilock “configmapsleases”) first, which will acquire a leader lock on both resources. After that, they can proceed migrating to v1beta1 (”leases”). As an additional safety step, these users should ensure the old controllers are stopped before running the new ones with the new lock mechanism. Otherwise, your controller might end up with multiple running instances that each acquired leadership through different resource locks during upgrades and thus act on the same resources concurrently.
