Weekly status for the week of the 31st to the 6th of August 2017.
This week’s focus was on bugfixing and more preparation work for LXC 2.1 on the LXC side of things.
We’ve also spent quite a bit of time improving the LXD snap so that all storage backends work properly using it, including automated tests on all distributions. This gets us one step closer to having the LXD snap be production ready.
- Debconf 2017 (August)
- Open Source Summit, Linux Plumbers and Linux Security Summit (CFP for Linux Plumbers) (September)
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.
- External authentication support for LXD servers
- Delta download for LXD daily images
- Preparation for LXC 2.1
- Snap package improvements.
The items listed below are highlights of the work which happened upstream over the past week and which will be included in the next release.
- Added support for “lxc query”, a low level client tool for LXD.
- Fixed some markdown escaping.
- Fixed a crash when hitting an invalid daemon configuration key.
