Will droplets created from custom images support IPv6 in the future?

I’m hoping to be able to use custom images with IPv6 at some point. So wondering if it is planned, or in the works.

I find it unbelievable that here we are in 2022, 4 years after this thread has been started, and DO still does not support something that should be a basic feature by now.

In that time they have added a lot of other bells and whistles and the majority of them are not nearly as fundamentally needed as this one.

This is a huge limitation to an otherwise great platform.

I hope this feature comes out soon!

I may be missing something, but I don’t see the problem with DHCP not working - yes, if somebody has no clue what they’re doing, then fair enough, but if somebody’s running a custom image, then aren’t they more likely to going to want to configure things manually anyway. In my case, why would I not be able to set the VM up with just DHCPv4 and then manually add a v6 address as a static? We’re currently on a trial and this is a real show-stopper for us - if we can’t run IPv6 on custom images, then we won’t bother testing anything else.
