Perhaps one of the most exciting features of LXD 2.0 is our support for checkpoint/restore, giving us features such as stateful snapshots, stateful stop/start and live migration.

All of this is still considered experimental but you can try it all in Ubuntu 16.04, see what works and what doesn't. Then let us know what didn't work for you so we can prioritize adding any missing bits and fixing whatever fails.

Enjoy!

Awesome. Selfish request - could you publish slides/demos? I'm doing a talk on lxd 2.0 at local tech group the week after, would be great to use your authoritative talk as a basis :)

And time for another LXD release candidate, that's rc9!

Besides all the bugfixes, this also introduces a new lxd-benchmark command as part of our testing tools and translates the LXD client into Japanese.

Current plan is to keep monitoring bug reports and if things stay as calm as they have lately, tag final LXD 2.0 early next week.

Enjoy!

And after LXCFS 2.0 final, we're now tagging a few more release candidates of the rest.

LXC 2.0 rc15 was tagged earlier today and I've just tagged LXD 2.0 rc8 just now.

Both are on their way to the various repositories right now.

Enjoy!

Ever wondered how to use the LXD API with nothing more than curl?
Well here is the answer!

The LXC 2.0 and LXD 2.0 releases have been keeping me rather busy lately, but now that all that fun is over, I got to finish and publish another post in my LXD 2.0 bog post series!

This one is on dealing with remote hosts and migrating containers.

Enjoy!

LXD 2.0 has now been released!

This is our first production-grade release of LXD.
As with LXC 2.0 and LXCFS 2.0, this will be supported upstream for the next 5 years with a scheduled EOL of 1st of June 2021.

It is now available on our demo service:
https://linuxcontainers.org/lxd/try-it

And will be available in Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 14.04 very shortly!

Enjoy!

And that's it, after more than a year of work, we just released LXC 2.0 final!

We got over 700 commits by over 90 contributors, making it our biggest release ever!

Feature wise, we've been reworking a bunch of the lxc-* tools, added a bunch of config options, a few more templates and a Ceph RBD storage driver!

But this release is meant as a very stable, production grade ready, so a lot of work went into fixing rough edges, adding support for new kernel features and improving our tests.

This is a long term support release, so LXC upstream is committing to a 5 years support period on this, ending 1st of June 2021. As with LXC 1.0 before it, we will be releasing bugfix-only point releases for LXC 2.0.

On the API front, I am very pleased to announce that LXC 2.0 is entirely backward compatible with the LXC 1.0 API, meaning no recompilation needed and a very smooth upgrade experience!

Enjoy!
