Weekly status #7

Weekly status for the week of the 17th to the 23rd of July 2017.


Part of the team was traveling this week but that didn’t prevent us from getting quite a lot of work done.
Ceph support in LXD is now up for review and expected to be included in the upcoming LXD 2.16 release.

A lot of progress has been done in backporting all relevant fixes to the LXC 2.0 stable branch in preparation for the upcoming LXC 2.0.9 bugfix release.

And LXD has received a number of smaller improvements like the ability to migrate from a stateful snapshot and a new API to edit container metadata and templates.

  • Nothing to report this week.


  • Fixed “migrate-from-deb” to work with LXD 2.15. This tool is still very much a work in progress and currently restricted to the “edge” channel.
