During this maintenance window we will upgrade The Things Network v3.27.0

We expect brief service interruptions during this deployment.

Here is the changelog since the current version v3.26.2:

### Added

- RPCs and CLI command to delete a batch of end devices within an application.
- Check `ttn-lw-cli end-devices batch-delete` for more details.
- Add `UserInput` component to the Console to handle user id input fields by implementing an autosuggest.

### Changed

- Instead of retrying application downlinks indefinitely, the Application Server now retries them for a configured number of times. Each `ApplicationDownlink` message contains the `attempt` and `max_attempts` fields to indicate the current and maximum number of attempts for a specific `application downlink`.
- The Application Server configuration has the `as.downlinks.confirmation.default-retry-attempts` and `as.downlinks.confirmation.max-retry-attempts` fields that configure the allowed number of retries for application downlinks. The default values are `8` for the `as.downlinks.confirmation.default-retry-attempts` and `32` for the `as.downlinks.confirmation.max-retry-attempts`.
- The `as.downlinks.confirmation.default-retry-attempts` field is used for all application downlinks that were scheduled before this change and for every application downlink that does not have the `max_attempts` field set. On the other hand, the `as.downlinks.confirmation.max-retry-attempts` field ensures that the `max_attempts` field's upper bound is contained and does not exceed its value.
- The number of historical frames considered for the multi-frame query window size in the LoRaCloud Geolocation Services integration. The window size is now limited between 1 and 16 frames with 16 being the default value.

### Removed

- Command-line interface support for listing QR code formats and generating QR codes. This is considered the responsibility of a LoRaWAN Join Server.

### Fixed

- End device data stream not being closed when navigating away from end device pages, which could cause event streams stopping to work due to too many open connections.
