Weekly status #6

Weekly status for the week of the 10th to the 16th of July 2017.


The main highlight for this week is the availability of the LXD 2.0 (LTS) branch as a snap.
Snap users can now choose which branch they’d like to use at installation time.

For the feature branch:

snap install lxd

For the LTS branch:

snap install lxd --channel=2.0/stable

That latter will currently get you LXD 2.0.10. The installation and setup experience is identical to that from our existing snap for the feature branch

We’ve also been pretty busy on the LXD side, implementing a number of smaller features. Improving the user experience of image creation, offering some more network configuration options and adding more control for custom storage volumes.

  • Nothing to report this week other than some bug triaging.

Distribution work

This section is used to track the work done in downstream Linux distributions to ship the latest LXC, LXD and LXCFS as well as work to get various software to work properly inside containers.


  • Updated LXCFS in Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10 and 17.04 to fix process time handling (btime).
