LXD 2.8 has been released!

Other than the usual accumulation of bugfixes, this release also includes the initial work on the new Go client library, improved exec handling, several improvements to LXD managed networks and some extra information is now reported in our client.

The LXD snap is already available in the candidate channel. Ubuntu deb packages will be available shortly.
