LXD 5.3 has been released

Introduction

The LXD team is very excited to announce the release of LXD 5.3!

With our focus still squarely on reworking a lot of our internal migration and storage logic, extending tests and doing initial research for upcoming LXD features, LXD 5.3 is primarily a bugfix release with only a couple of small features.

Enjoy!

New features and highlights

Extended raw.qemu support

A new raw.qemu.conf configuration key was added. This allows individually overriding part of the generated QEMU configuration as well as adding devices or device configurations keys to the generated configuration

You can find more details about this here: Instance configuration - LXD documentation

fscache support for cephfs storage pools

The ceph filesystem supports the use of the kernel fscache.
This interacts with a userspace caching daemon such as cachefilesd in a similar fashion to what NFS and other network filesystems can do.

To enable the use of fscache for LXD managed cephfs pools, you may now set cephfs.fscache to true on the storage pool.

lxd-migrate binaries

Starting with LXD 5.3 prebuilt lxd-migrate binaries can be downloaded from the LXD Github releases page. This allows the use of lxd-migrate on a source machine without having to build it manually.
