Hello everyone,

It's with great pleasure that the LXC development team is announcing
the release of LXC 2.0!

This is the result of over a year of work from upstream LXC and was made
of over 700 commits by over 90 contributors!

It also joins LXCFS which got its own 2.0 release last week and will
very soon be joined by LXD 2.0. Those three combined make for a new,
completely reworked, user experience while still keeping full backward
compatibility for our existing users who do not wish to upgrade to LXD.

All our Long Term Support releases benefit from a 5 years support
commitment which for the 2.0 means until the 1st of June 2021.
During those 5 years we will be publishing occasional bugfix and
security releases made from backported fixes from our development

LXC 2.0 includes a cleaner user experience, more reliable
checkpoint/restore of containers, improved cgroup handling and a lot of

It is also worth noting that the liblxc library shipped in 2.0 is still
fully backward compatible with that released in LXC 1.0 two years ago.

We hope you'll enjoy this new release as much as we do!
