Released: 4/12/2021

This release allows changing the internal id prefixes of VM components. This overcomes limitations /w CNI's like Weave net. A U/X improvement has been made to the VM list command to show when the container runtime state of the VM does not match what ignite has stored in the API objet.

New base OS images and kernels have been released with the GitHub Actions release tools. A k3s OS image is now pushed for amd64. The default kernel has been updated to 5.4.108.

This release consists of 37 noteworthy PR's from 6 contributors. 11 of these patches were sent by 3 external contributors. 11 patches were sent by 3 people new to the project; welcome! :) Thanks so much for using and contributing back to the project.

Cheers to everyone who was part of shipping this release: - @bboreham - @darkowlzz - @EmeraldShift - @gaby - @onatm - @stealthybox
