Weekly status #348

Weekly status for the week of 27th May to 2nd June.


This past week, no new features were added, but some bugs were fixed and documentation was further improved.

LXD Terraform provider 2.1.0

There is a new release of LXD Terraform provider. Changes can be seen on terraform-lxd/terraform-provider-lxd release page.


  • Fixed the issue with architecture-dependent variables VHOST_VSOCK_SET_GUEST_CID and BTRFS_IOC_SET_RECEIVED_SUBVOL. These were previously hardcoded for x86_64, leading to potential malfunctions on architectures like ppc64le.
  • Fixed handling of limits.cpu for VM-type instances. This was a regression introduced with CPU auto rebalancing/pinning. Now, if limits.cpu is not set, it defaults to 1 for virtual machines, and for containers there is no limit.
  • Fixed btrfs argument order which caused issues during btrfs storage recovery (from Incus).
