Snapd 2.19 is here almost three weeks after the release of Snapd 2.18 and only one week after its first maintenance update, version 2.18.1. According to the release notes, which we’ve attached at the end of the article for your reading pleasure, Snapd 2.19 is a major update implementing numerous improvements and new features.
Prominent new features include support for classic confinement, the merge of snap-confine into snapd, the ability to display the last refresh time, support for parsing and exposing snap.Info aliases, move to xdelta3 as default delta format for the Snappy Store, as well as AppArmor support for classic confinement to the interfaces.
Furthermore, the “`snap info” command now has a description, missing ca-certificates dependency was added for Debian GNU/Linux distributions, the system-observe interface has been updated to work with ps_mem, snap-confine unit tests were re-enabled via spread, and it’s now possible to abort a Snap installation with Ctrl+C.
