Canonical’s Michael Vogt announced the release and immediate availability of a new maintenance update of the Snapd daemon that implements support for Snap universal binary packages in GNU/Linux distributions.
New Snapd point releases are out pretty fast these days, which means that they don’t include any major changes, but only some much-needed improvements and support for requested technologies. Therefore, Snapd 2.13 is the third maintenance update introduced in the month of August 2016.
According to the release notes, Snapd 2.13 is here to introduce a bunch of new interfaces, among which we can mention lxd-support, fuse, and mpris, those adding support for LXD, FUSE, and MPRIS technologies, end-to-end support for the Snap assertions checking functionality, multiple image improvements, and many bug fixes.
