New features & improvements
To minimise reboot of a machine or stopping of all containers, an internal check whether the GPU driver needs to be updated is in place. This also presents a status to the user indication the need to reboot the machine after a GPU driver update. The users can also ask if a pending upgrade will require a machine reboot or containers to be stopped.
If the LXD charm is deployed on a machine that has an NVIDIA GPU installed, running the
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -ycommand for the machine may upgrade the NVIDIA drivers, which accidentally suspends running containers with GPU support. Hence, the NVIDIA drivers are held from being upgraded until you upgrade the LXD charm using the Juju command. You can check if the NVIDIA drivers are being held from being upgraded and when required, you can update them manually.
Android security updates for March 2023 (see Android Security Bulletin - March 2023 for more information). Starting this month, Android 10 will no longer receive security updates as Google stops providing security patches for Android 10.
The Android WebView has been updated to 111.0.5563.49.
AC-1380 Android system UI crashes due to missing permissions.
AC-1435 Connection timer stays alive after connection attempt failed.
AC-1447 Anbox runtime becomes blocked when stopped before being fully started.
quotekey code doesn’t get handled in Anbox Streaming JS SDK when interacting with the container.
- Since Android 10 will no longer receive security patches from Google starting this month, the security patch level for Android 10 should be 2023-02-05 rather than 2023-03-05. This will be fixed in the Anbox Cloud 1.17.2 release.
- The following two commits from the latest security tag are not yet applied. They will be applied in the 1.17.2 release.
