So this past week was rather intense, in a nutshell, we’ve:
So we’ve finally done it, most of the work that we wanted in for our 3.0 LTS release of all LXC/LXD/LXCFS repositories has been merged and we’re now focused on a few remaining tweaks, small additions and fixes with a plan to release the final 3.0 by the end of the month.
With all of this activity we’ve also had to update all the relevant packaging, moving a bunch of stuff around between packages and adding support for all the new features.
For those interesting in trying the new betas, the easiest way to see everything working together is through the LXD beta snap:
snap install lxd --beta
Note that the betas aren’t supported, you may incur data loss when upgrading or later down the line. Testing would be very much appreciated, but please do this on systems you don’t mind reinstalling if something goes wrong
This week, the entire LXD team is meeting in Budapest, Hungary to go through the list of remaining things and make progress towards the final 3.0 release.
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.
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.
