Updated the following dependencies: Kopf from v1.33.0 to v1.35.4, and the Kubernetes client from v18.20.0 to v23.6.0.
Group replication now uses the MySQL protocol to establish connections instead of the internal XCom communication infrastructure. Newly created clusters use the MySQL Protocol via port 3306, whereas clusters created using a previous version will continue to use XCom on port 33061.
This also changes the minimum supported MySQL Server version from v8.0.24 to v8.0.27.
Added cert-manager (a CNCF project) support.
