Weekly status #319

Weekly status for the week of 2nd October to 8th October.


This week was a quiet week with no new features. A few bugs were fixed, and an improvement regarding error propagation was made.

LXD highlights


  • When streaming split tarballs, if an error occurs while writing, the error is propagated.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where new cluster members which joined a cluster didn’t receive the full cluster config.
  • Calling lxc storage volume move now uses the rename functionality if it detects a storage volume rename. This fixes an issue where an error was returned although the rename succeeded.
  • Fixed a bug where the lxc command would panic when calling lxc storage set <pool> <key> <value> due to an uninitialized map.

All changes

The items listed below is all of the work which happened over the past week and which will be included in the next release.
