Weekly status #309

Weekly status for the week of 24th July to 30th July.


This past week LXD added support for ZFS delegation. This allows a container on the ZFS backend to manage their own datasets.

LXD highlights


  • Added support for copying volume snapshots to and from a remote.
  • Added ZFS delegation which allows containers to manage their own ZFS datasets.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where retrieving instance snapshot properties via lxc config get would return a does not exist error.
  • Fixed a regression which caused attached ISOs to not have the filesystem type set to iso9660.
  • Fixed a bug in the ZFS backend which caused cached images to be ignored when zfs.block_mode was enabled.
  • Fixed a bug where importing an instance with another name didn’t update the backup file.
  • Fixed a bug where new instances without a specific name but in a specific project were only created but not started when launched with lxc launch.
  • Fixed a bug where virtiofsd couldn’t be found on Arch Linux due to the binary being in an unchecked directory.
