Hi, I have a question about Pulumi and Terraform. I have seen people say that Pulumi uses Terrafrom underneath, but apparently this is no longer the case and it is moving to native providers. Can someone give me confirmation about this? I searched docs and github issues but wasn't able to find anything that mentions this issue.

The core engine of pulumi doesn't and has never used terraform. Some cloud providers make use of terraform providers and the pulumi-terraform bridge. All the large cloud providers (AWS, GCE, Azure, K8s) now have what we call native providers which don't use any part of terraform.
