Weekly status #272

Weekly status for the week of the 17th October to the 23rd October.


This past week has been a bug fix week as some of the LXD team have been away at a planning meeting.

Additionally @stgraber has added a video covering the LXD projects feature:


  • Added WSL support to the dnsmasq AppArmor profile.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that prevented filtering images by architecture when using lxc image list by expanding filtering to consider image entity fields as well as the their properties map.
  • Fixed regression in ovn NIC that prevented using ipv{n}.routes* settings when the network doesn’t have DHCP enabled.
  • Fixed an issue with the recently added duplicate instance DNS name checks by relaxing the check to not take effect if the parent network has dns.mode=none or if the conflicting instance NIC uses a different vlan setting. As in these cases these instance names do not cause a DNS conflict.
  • Fixed an issue where core.shutdown_timeout setting was not respected when initiating lxd shutdown.


YouTube videos

The LXD team is running a YouTube channel with live streams covering LXD releases and weekly videos on different aspects of LXD. You may want to give it a watch and/or subscribe for more content in the coming weeks.
