Weekly status for the week of the 18th to the 24th of September 2017.

Introduction

The main highlight of this week was the release of LXD 2.18.

We’ve otherwise been busy tracking down and fixing a number of issues, extended the user-agent string that LXD uses when talking to our image server and been working on a number of fixes for LXC 2.1.

We’re also making good progress on the stable release branches and hope to get to tag a number of stable bugfix releases next week.
