Snapcraft 2.4 is yet another maintenance release of the powerful utility that lets users build and manage snaps for Snappy Ubuntu Core, and it adds some very attractive features, such as support for migrating from skills to interfaces.
Additionally, Snapcraft 2.4 adds support for parallel builds, but only for plugins that support this feature, implements a “–debug” argument that allows you to write a plugin for Snapcraft much more easily than before, and supports daemon restarts.
But that’s not all, as the devs have managed to clean the output, have added a smarter source management infrastructure for subdirectories, and have cleaned the human readable errors that were displayed during improper build- and catkin-packages or invalid commands.
Snapcraft 2.4 has already been pushed to the main software repositories of the upcoming Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system.
