Version updates

ACK Distro supports new Kubernetes versions based on the following rules:

  1. A new Kubernetes version is supported by Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) Distro within two months after the Kubernetes version is supported by ACK.

  2. A new Kubernetes version is supported by ACK Distro when features are updated or vulnerabilities are patched.
