Another pretty quiet week for LXD as we keep working on a number of larger features that aren’t ready to land yet. Now that the Ubuntu 18.04 development release is open for contributions, we’re pushing LXD 2.19, LXC 2.1.1 and LXCFS 2.0.8 there which will then trickle down to our various PPAs, stable Ubuntu releases and backports.

@brauner was also busy talking about LXD and system containers in St Petersburg, Russia!
