Weekly status #345

Weekly status for the week of 22nd April to 28th April.


Last week there was an interim snap release of LXD 5.0.3 that introduced the new images: remote to the lxc CLI command (along with some bug fixes). This was to ensure that the 5.0/stable channel continued to have access to non-Ubuntu images as the previous community image server is set to become unavailable on 2024-05-01. Please see the release notes post for more detail.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed some issues with MicroOVN and LXD snap interactions when being installed/uninstalled in specific order which could prevent installation/uninstallation of the snap packages.
  • Fixed issue with using nano from the LXD snap as a non-root user.
  • Improved setup of ZFS pool configurations at create and mount times to avoid redundant set calls.
  • Improved database query efficiency when retrieving storage pool volume lists for multiple pools.
  • Updated Makefile to build dqlite using its bundled raft and not build raft separately.

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