Upgrade Backstage to 0.71.0

All Roadie Backstage instances have been upgraded to Release v0.71.0.

Some of the user facing features and changes include:

  • The AboutCard has been removed and replaced with EntityAboutCard. We transparently handled this migration for all of our users.
  • Support for backstage.io/v1beta2 scaffolder templates was removed.
  • Markdown can now be used in the description of scaffolder templates.
