Chameleon Changelog for November 2022

We hope everybody's had a great Thanksgiving! We've been busy bees this month supporting IndySCC and the many supercomputing projects and demos but still have a little something we can all be thankful for: we now have InfiniBand on the A100 nodes so you can build sophisticated data systems of components connected via RDMA fabric -- and we also have better filters for hardware so you can find those components more easily!
