Upgrading from v1.6 to v1.7

⚠ Following their deprecation in version 1.5, the cert-manager API versions v1alpha2, v1alpha3, and v1beta1 have been removed. You must ensure that all cert-manager custom resources are stored in etcd at version v1 and that all cert-manager CustomResourceDefinitions have only v1 as the stored version before upgrading. Please read Migrating Deprecated API Resources for full instructions.

If you are currently using HTTP-01 challenges or the Ingress shim annotations, please read the Ingress class compatibility notes to see if your Ingress controller has any known issues with the migration to Ingress v1.
