Update to version 3.2.1:

This point release fixes the following bugs:

- Allows users to join instances with non-suid workflow
- Removes false warning when seccomp is disabled on the host
- Fixes an issue in the terminal when piping output to commands
- Binds NVIDIA persistenced socket when `--nv` is invoked

Improve integration with SUSE Products: add support to create Singularity
images with SLE.

* Newer SUSE versions use a different path for the RPM database.
* When the installation succeeds by an installation scriptlet fails zypper
returns error code 107. Don't treat this as an error.
* In order to specify a repository GPG key, add support for multi line
* In order to specify a list of additional repos, add support to 'indexed'
* Improve handling of SUSE repositires:

- For SLE, use SUSEConnect to get all product repos.
- Allow to specify a repository GPG key.
- Allow to specify additional installation repositories.

- Add group 'singularity', fix ownerships.

Updated to singularity v3.2.0

* CVE-2019-11328: Instance files are now stored in user's home directory
for privacy and many checks have been added to ensure that a user can't
manipulate files to change `starter-suid` behavior when instances are
joined (many thanks to Matthias Gerstner from the SUSE security team for
finding and securely reporting this vulnerability) (boo#1128598)

* New features / functionalities

- Introduced a new basic framework for creating and managing plugins
- Added the ability to create containers through multi-stage builds
- Created the concept of a Sylabs Cloud "remote" endpoint and added the
ability for users and admins to set them through CLI and conf files
- Added caching for images from Singularity Hub
- Made it possible to compile Singularity outside of `$GOPATH`
- Added a json partition to SIF files for OCI configuration when
building from an OCI source
- Full integration with Singularity desktop for MacOS code base

* New Commands

- Introduced the `plugin` command group for creating and managing

* Introduced the `remote` command group to support management of
Singularity endpoints.
* Added to the `key` command group to improve PGP key management.
* Added the `Stage: <name>` keyword to the definition file header and the
`from <stage name>` option/argument pair to the `%files` section to
support multistage builds
* Deprecated / removed commands

- The `--token/-t` option has been deprecated in favor of the
`singularity remote` command group

* Changed defaults / behaviors

- Ask to confirm password on a newly generated PGP key
- Prompt to push a key to the KeyStore when generated
- Refuse to push an unsigned container unless overridden with
`--allow-unauthenticated/-U` option
- Warn and prompt when pulling an unsigned container without the
`--allow-unauthenticated/-U` option For more information check:

Updated to singularity v3.1.1:

* New Commands

- New hidden `buildcfg` command to display compile-time parameters
- Added support for `LDFLAGS`, `CFLAGS`, `CGO_` variables in build system
- Added `--nocolor` flag to Singularity client to disable color in

* Removed Commands

- `singularity capability <add/drop> --desc` has been removed
- `singularity capability list <--all/--group/--user>` flags have all

* New features / functionalities
- The `--builder` flag to the `build` command implicitly sets `--remote`
- Repeated binds no longer cause Singularity to exit and fail, just warn
- Corrected typos and improved docstrings throughout
- Removed warning when CWD does not exist on the host system
- Added support to spec file for RPM building on SLES 11

Update to singularity 3.1.0 what is reimplementaion in go so this is a
complete new build and just reusing the changelog entries, following build
differences were made to the upstream spec file

* build position independent executable
* build stripped executable

- Change from /var/singularity to /var/lib/singularity
- Fix warning on bash-completion file about non-executible script.

- Add bash completions directory to file list for suse_version < 1500 to
keep the build checker happy.
