VyOS 1.3.0-epa2 release

Hello Community!

VyOS 1.3.0-epa2 release is available now. The generic ISO image is available publicly, while subscribers can access additional flavors through the support portal. This is mainly a bugfix release that corrects a number of issues found in the earlier 1.3.0-epa1 release.  However, in addition to bug fixes, it includes a few features and updates, including DNS forwarding support for reverse zones and Linux kernel 5.4.154. It also will not be the last EPA (early production access) release—there are a few work-in-progress bug fixes now, so stay tuned for updates.

Big thanks to everyone who's testing these images and reporting bugs! The number of features and their combinations is incredibly large, and without your help, comprehensive testing would be taking much longer. Remember that we offer free LTS subscriptions to all contributors including those who are testing images and reporting bugs, so if you have been contributing for a while but don't have a subscription, feel free to apply for one.
