LXD 0.26 release announcement

4th of January 2016

The main changes for this release are

  • New "host_name" network interface property that specifies the name of the host side veth device
  • It is now possible to pull/push/edit files of a stopped container
  • It's now possible to specify what "lxc list" columns to show (including a new PID column)


  • Properly inherit the active CPU map rather than assuming all CPUs are usable
  • zfs: Fix a couple of race conditions
  • lvm: Fix creation of container from an image
  • Cut down network round trips in half by not calling Finger() every time
  • Fix invalid permissions on container shmounts and devices directories
  • Fix container teardown not always cleaning up devices & mounts
  • Improve performance of host-triggered container stop/restart (5s faster)
  • Make lxd callhook timeout after 30s (instead of hanging indefinitely on failure)
  • Cleanup and document the testsuite
  • Fix remote certificate handling on add/rename/remove
