The Authentication Plugin for Anthos has been integrated into and replaced with the Google Cloud command-line interface, which improves the authentication process and provides the user consent flow through gcloud commands.
vSphere credential rotation is enabled. Users can now use Solution User Certificates to authenticate to GKE deployed on-prem.
Preview Feature: Introducing User cluster Nodepools.
gkectl automatically uses the proxy URL from config.yaml to configure the proxy on the admin workstation.
When using F5 BIG-IP load balancer of GKE On-Prem you might be wanting to use evaluation license. Keep in mind that this license has a restriction of 2MBps bandwidth in total. GKE-OP even with one user cluster can cause saturation and slowness of K8s API response. With multiple cluster and Istio installed the API can stop response at all. Note that F5 might not be showing the bandwith is saturated when you use the CLI tools.
Resolution: use full license or request 10GBps evaluation license.

Root cause: This is cause by the image not being present on the datastore. The installation steps in the GCP docs have wrong sequence.
