Heimdall v0.2.12 - Mumbai Release

A new version of heimdall is available - v0.2.12. All validator nodes need to upgrade to v0.2.12 as quickly as possible. This release includes changes required for RPC calls happening to L1 chain (ethereum / goerli) from heimdall to be EIP-155 compliant. It also uses the latest bor client module and includes related changes.

Note: This upgrade has to be done on an urgent basis on validator nodes relying on alchemy RPC endpoints for main chain i.e. ethereum or goerli. Alchemy will be enforcing EIP-155 at their end from 21st October, 2022 and hence all the transactions which are being sent from heimdall should be EIP-155 compliant. It is advisable to update validator nodes before that. Sentry/Full nodes/Archive nodes can also be upgraded but it is not urgent.
