LXD is getting one step closer to 2.0 with beta2 having just been tagged!

This release brings many bugfixes as well as support for optimized container transfers on btrfs and a variety of usability improvements to our command line client.

As usual, the online demo service has been updated and packages have been uploaded to Ubuntu!

Enjoy!

Just released LXD 0.27!

We've received a lot of great feedback those past few weeks and it really shows with this release!
LXD 0.27 contains a lot of bugfixes, usability improvements and other minor features.

This also includes disk quotas (on zfs and btrfs) and a script to convert your LXC containers into LXD ones!

As always, you can try it all online here: https://linuxcontainers.org/lxd/try-it/

Announcement is here: https://linuxcontainers.org/lxd/news/

Also a quick reminder that the LXD team will be in Brussels next week for FOSDEM's container devroom and working together a few days before.
Let me know if you'd like to meet!
Details: https://fosdem.org/2016/schedule/track/containers_and_process_isolation/

Enjoy!

The LXD team will be presenting at Fosdem 2016 in the Containers and Process Isolation devroom, come join us!

My team will be presenting LXD itself, talking about new container features and live migration. There are also plenty of other interesting container talks in that devroom so well worth spending your Saturday with us!

Fosdem 2016 is held in Brussels, Belgium on the 30th and 31st of January, the containers devroom will be on the Saturday.

Just tagged LXC 2.0 beta1!

The final 2.0 release is planned for mid-January.
This will be the second long-term support release of LXC which we'll support with bugfix releases until April 2021.

As a reminder LXC 1.0 released in February 2014 and supported until April 2019 recently received its eighth bugfix release and still works on all kernels from 2.6.32 all the way to the current 4.4 rc.

Enjoy!

+Jonathan Carter Not so many things compared to 1.1 actually, though the main benefit will be the 5 years support.

Looking at the list of commits I didn't backport to older releases, we've got:
- New lxc.rebootsignal
- Non-bridged veth devices for unprivileged containers
- lxc-busybox gets SSH support
- group quotas in /etc/lxc/lxc-usernet
- New destroy hook
- macvlan passthru mode
- Changed timestamp format in logs
- Support for vendor-data in lxc-ubuntu-cloud
- Korean man pages
- lxc-clone can rename containers
- Instanced systemd unit
- Support for different bind-mount target in lxc-start-ephemeral
- Remove container snapshots on destroy
- Clone the bridge MTU as the default container MTU
- Now possible to set the uid/gid on execute
- New slackware template
- New lxc-copy command
- lxc.init_cmd now support command arguments

LXD 0.23 was tagged a few hours ago!

This release brings quite a few new features, most notably a new "lxd init" command for post-installation configuration (storage, network and password) and the ability to import images from a URL (requires specific HTTP headers).

The detailed changelog can be found on our website and LXD 0.23 is already available for you to try in our online demo environment.

Enjoy!

+Stéphane Graber​ but the unity 8 version for the desktop runs on LXC. Doesn't it use a video card as well? But I understand. It was just wishfull thinking. Would have been nice.

Containers devroom is completely full here at FOSDEM, if you want to follow what's going on here, look online!
Physical servers are so 2010 and so are VMs. Containers? Well, you're already living the dream, but there's something just around the corner and you surely have already heard about it: AWS Lambda, webtask.io, and StackHut are the new new kids on the block and in this talk we will see what they ...

Just tagged the first beta of LXD 2.0! https://linuxcontainers.org/lxd/news/

The main features are the addition of storage and network limits, wit those, our work on resource limits for 2.0 is now complete!

This release also fixes a whole lot of bugs which should make it a very stable LXD release!

And now, flying to Brussels for FOSDEM!

See you there!

Just tagged LXD 0.26!

This is mostly a bugfix release due to most of us being out for a couple of weeks due to the holidays.

The new features are support for file push/pull/edit on stopped containers, the ability to specify the name of the host side of a veth interface pair and the ability to choose what column to show in "lxc list".

Everything else is bugfixes, performance improvements and tweaks to the testsuite!

While some folks were already on Christmas break, the LXD team was still hard at work preparing its last release of the year, LXD 0.25! And it's now out!

I'm releasing a day early as I'll be somewhere above the Atlantic ocean by this time tomorrow.

LXD 0.25 is a massive bugfix release, tripling the number of tests we run with every commit and fixing a heap of bugs and race conditions that those found!

On top of all the bugfixes, it also introduces full support for CPU and memory limits, optimized container & snapshot transfer using ZFS and a few more new features!

And as usual, you can test it all from your browser using our demo service which was updated to 0.25 minutes after release!

Enjoy!

An intro about noteworthy new features in the two most recent major autopkgtest releases.
The last two major autopkgtest releases (3.18 from November, and 3.19 fresh from yesterday) bring some new features that are worth spreading. New LXD virtualization backend. 3.19 debuts the new adt-virt-lxd virtualization backend. In case you missed it, LXD is an API/CLI layer on top of LXC ...

On my spare time I design, setup and run the infrastructure of one of the largest on-site CTFs, +NorthSec.
This is naturally all based on Ubuntu and containers with legacy-free, state of the art, networking!

With the 2015 now well behind us and the 2016 approaching quickly, I'm looking at what we'll need to scale the event and what kind of technology choices we'll be doing for 2016.

If you're interested in sponsoring, please get in touch!

Enjoy!
