Updated the LXD getting started guide to better cover image import and remote host operation. Hope this will be useful to people!
The package creates a new "lxd" group which contains all users allowed to talk to lxd over the local unix socket. All members of the "admin" and "sudoers" groups are automatically added. If your user isn't a member of one of these groups, you'll need to manually add your user to the "lxd" group.

Ubuntu core users, we now have a snap for LXD 0.15 which works on both x86 and armhf (tested on raspberry pi2)!

Still not in the store yet, but getting closer to it!

LXC/LXD users: My team is currently spending some time thinking about container resource limitations and reporting, trying to design a good user experience for LXD.

As part of that, I've sent a few questions and general request for comment to the lxc-users list. If you are or plan to be using resource restrictions for your containers, please take a few minutes to respond!

Today we're releasing the fix to two LXC security issues. Most distributions should already have or very soon will upload security updates but if you're not using distro-provided packages, you should grab the fixes and rebuild!

Thanks to Roman Fiedler for finding those issues!

And LXD 0.13 is out!

This release brings among other things, LVM thin pool support as a container and image backing store, support for turning a container into an image, batch container operations and a variety of other improvements.

This is also the first release to be buildable on something other than Linux with the LXD client now being buildable on MacOS X! 

Enjoy!

LXD 0.16 was tagged yesterday but I only got around to publish a changelog now, so there you go!

Quite a few nice new features and a lot of bugs fixed!

Very happy to announce that we've finally tagged LXC 1.1.3.

This is a pretty important bugfix release. It contains the fixes for the two recent LXC CVEs as well as a lot more bugfixes as well as minor improvements needed to support newer kernels.

Enjoy!

Here are some links to the talks my team will be giving about containers and LXD at #ContainerCon  2015 in Seattle, WA.

We'll also be demoing LXD at the Ubuntu booth throughout the event.

Come see us there!

LXD 0.15 has now been released!

Well, it's technically been tagged on schedule yesterday evening but I've then been busy celebrating by drinking beer with fellow LXD developers who are in town this week rather than do the post-release paperwork :)

So anyway, there you have it. This release fixes a LOT of issues and makes things more flexible internally going forward. It also introduces quite a few nice features, like the ability to add storage and network devices to a running container, the new lxdbr0 bridge, new config options and much improved storage handling!

The next LXD release will happen while we'll all be in Seattle for ContainerCon.

We have a bunch of LXD and container talks lined up there and will also be presenting at both the container and checkpoint/restore mini-summits at the co-located Linux Plumbers Conference event.
If you want to learn more about LXD, come to the talks or drop by the Ubuntu booth!

And LXD 0.14 is out!

This release brings a lot of polish to some recently (and not so recently) added features. But more importantly, it also finally brings support for the official Ubuntu Cloud images. At this point, this is limited to wily as we're waiting for images to get published for the stable releases, but it should only be a matter of days!


For those who were waiting to use LXD with cloud-init, you can use LXD 0.14, import official cloud images, either yourself or import the latest through the helper script "lxd-images import ubuntu".

Then create your containers, setting the user.user-data config key to your cloud-init metadata. This will be fed to cloud-init and processed as it would in the cloud.


Note that while this is all working, things will get ever better when cloud-init's /dev/lxd support lands and when we add background sync support to lxd-images (so your images are always fresh) but all that is for a later release.

Enjoy!

Got NAT64 and DNS64 setup at home, turned off IPv4 on my laptop entirely and kept on with my life. That was a couple of hours ago and so far nothing unexpected failed, everything that I usually use over the IPv4 internet is working exactly as usual, except my laptop thinks they're all now IPv6!

The expected failure was communication with my chromecast from my web browser. But that's a very very weird setup where the chromecast sits on one subnet the multicast traffic is then routed across subnets by my gateway and then routed again on my laptop to the LXC container which runs my web browser. So pretty brittle to begin with :)
