The Ubuntu package has been uploaded. Due to ongoing Go work in the Ubuntu development release, it may take several days for this package to be available to users (including our PPAs).
In a few days after additional manual validation is done on LXD 2.17, we'll be pushing it to our Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.04 users through xenial-backports and zesty-backports respectively.
The LXD snap is present in the "candidate" channel: snap install --candidate lxd
The LXD snap has been confirmed to work on the following distributions:
- ArchLinux (unprivileged containers require an alternative kernel)
- Debian Stretch
- Fedora 25
- OpenSUSE 42.2
- Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu Core 16
Note that upstream LXD still recommends the use of native packages over the snap package when such a package is available. We don't consider our snap production ready yet, but hope it will soon be.
