24th of November 2016
This is an emergency bugfix release to fix a critical regression in LXD 2.6.

potentially start as privileged containers upon restart.

The changes in this release include


  • extra/bash: Better parse containers list
  • lxc/copy: Make container copy more robust (Issue #2640)
  • lxc/init: Remove unicode character from lxc warning
  • lxd/containers: Don't assign idmaps to privileged containers
  • lxd/containers: Don't break when parsing old containers
  • lxd/containers: Don't double apply templates
  • lxd/containers: Fix concurrent map iteration+modification
  • lxd/containers: Fix idmap handling of pre-idmap containers (Issue #2644)
  • tests: Add tests for file templating (Issue #2642)
