Weekly status #72

Weekly status for the week of the 29th of October to the 4th of November.


This week’s focus was on getting a few things sorted ahead of the LXD 3.7 release and fixing a number of bugs and smaller feature requests.

LXD 3.0.2 was finally released to those Ubuntu 18.04 users who are still using the deb packages, joining LXC 3.0.2 and LXCFS 3.0.2. All 3 packages will soon be backported to Ubuntu 16.04 too.

On the snap front, we’ve reworked the store listing for the LXD snap and have been updating the snap with bugfixes.

The LXD team is also getting ready for next week, where the entire team will be traveling to Vancouver, Canada for the Linux Plumbers Conference where we’ll be running the containers micro-conference on Tuesday. Looking forward to seeing everyone over there!
