Support for UDP Port Forward via the CLI

Northflank CLI now supports UDP port forwarding in addition to existing TCP & HTTP protocols. This enables secure forwarding of UDP traffic running within your project firewall to your local machine. UDP traffic is essential for real-time communication, media and game servers, VoIP, DNS and many other applications.

This unique capability has been added in conjunction with wide-ranging security and runtime improvements, prompting us to migrate from Kubernetes API port-forward due to its limitations in only supporting TCP traffic. In summary, Northflank can power many more applications, furthering our mission to deliver a sandbox of developer tools that get out of your way.
