Azurerm v2.62.0 now requires me to set skip_provider_registration to true when v2.61.0 did not

With azurerm v2.61.0, I did not need to set my skip_provider_registration set to true. But since the upgrade to v2.62.0, I need to have this value set. I can verify my terraform still works with v2.61.0 by running this:

terraform {
  required_providers {
    azurerm = {
      source = "hashicorp/azurerm"
      version = "2.61.0"

here is my current terraform where i am not explicitly setting any versions:

Terraform v0.15.5
on linux_amd64
+ provider v2.62.0

What has changed? Is it on purpose? Where in the change logs is it included?
