Weekly status for the week of the 30th of October to the 5th of November 2017.
Another pretty quiet week for LXD as we keep working on a number of larger features that aren't ready to land yet. Now that the Ubuntu 18.04 development release is open for contributions, we're pushing LXD 2.19, LXC 2.1.1 and LXCFS 2.0.8 there which will then trickle down to our various PPAs, stable Ubuntu releases and backports.
@brauner was also busy talking about LXD and system containers in St Petersburg, Russia!
Upcoming conferences and events
- FOSDEM 2018 (Brussels, February 2018)
The list below is feature or refactoring work which will span several weeks/months and can't be tied directly to a single Github issue or pull request.
- Console attach in LXD
- Distributed database for LXD clustering
