We are pleased to announce the availability of HashiCorp Terraform 0.13 in public beta.
The 0.13 release of Terraform builds on the powerful language improvements made with 0.12, with a focus on improved usability for module-specific workflows and enhancements to our vibrant and growing provider ecosystem. Terraform 0.13 is also the first major release featuring
Terraform login,which makes it simple to collaborate using Terraform Cloud.
Terraform 0.13 highlights include:
Module-centric workflows are getting a boost with the
for_each features of the Terraform confirmation language.
Terraform 0.13 brings with it a new
required providers syntax. This change goes hand in hand with improvements to the Terraform Provider Registry. For the beta release, we’re focused on the ability to discover and initialize community providers from the Registry. These are major improvements to our provider ecosystem and provider interaction. In addition to simplifying the installation of community providers, Terraform can now distinguish between official HashiCorp-supported providers & HashiCorp partner-supported providers.
Custom variable validation, introduced as a language experiment in Terraform 0.12.20, is now a production-ready feature in Terraform 0.13.
terraform login command connects a CLI user to the Terraform Cloud app, where they can generate and copy an API token.
