Weekly status for the weeks of the 6th to the 12th of May.

Introduction

The main highlight for this week was the release of LXD 3.13!

This includes some last minute feature additions like IPVLAN support and the syscall interception work. We also got to fix some last minute issues around clustering, CEPH and did some cleanup just before the release.

We are now looking at updating our stable branches with 3.0.4 in the horizon. After that’s out of the way, we will be transitioning to dqlite 1.0 and handle any needed transition/bumpiness that it may cause.

Ongoing projects

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.

  • Rework of internal LXD storage handling
  • Dqlite 1.0
  • Various kernel work
  • Stable release work for LXC, LXCFS and LXD
