According to the Canonical company a few hours ago, one has been included new version of snapd in the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS repository. This edition, 2.0.3, is the latest and more stable of all for the Xenial Xerus operating system version, where will interact with Ubuntu Core’s Snappy infrastructure (The variant of Ubuntu Linux designed for embedded devices and the Internet of Things or Yacht).
The new options included in the snapd daemon can be found in its own change log, and of course incorporates some very interesting. For example, the implementation of Unity snap autopkg as a test, the “assume: common-data-dir” flag and the YAML function.
This new version of snapd is almost a reboot for this application because, after numerous unsuccessful retries in the past to apply snaps through the console, It has been improved in its installation, allowing you to not only install, but remove or update snaps. too an interface has been included as a test of the man himself and now non-versioned data is supported.
The following improvements are related to the BlueZ interface, the removal of the little used function SetProperty and the D-Bus code. Also, descriptions, short and long, have been added to the pages of the application hand. Snapshot form maneuvers have been improved and integration tests have been reinstated.
Finally, the snap delete command is able to delete all revisions that are on the same snap. The client is now able to correctly list each of the snap types, and the installation profile feature uses a new version that allows it to use multiple integration tests.
Snapd 2.0.3 is ready for your Ubuntu 16.04, what are you waiting for to try it out?
