Yoe 2023.08 release 🚀

The latest monthly release of yoe distro is available now. This release contains a major rework of the projects structure where projects are now moved into the toplevel conf directory and corresponding envsetup changes are also made to detect projects. This release also has toolchain component upgrades e.g. binutils 2.41, Go - 1.20.7, glibc 2.38. The rPI4 reference image yoe-kiosk-image is now using QT6 instead of QT5. The Go runtime has been fixed such that Go applications do not crash the Go linker during build on ARM64. A spurious rebuilt of Clang compiler when multilib is enabled is fixed as well.
