Hello everyone,

After releasing LXC 2.0 last week, we are very happy to announce that we
have now released version 2.0 of LXD!

LXD is a new project, started a year and a half ago to provide a new,
cleaner, more user friendly, system containers experience.

It is based on LXC 2.0 through the use of the liblxc library and is
essentially a system wide daemon offering a REST API to interact with

It is entirely image based, supports a variety of storage backends and
advanced features such as live migration through the use of CRIU.

This is the first production-ready release of LXD and just like LXC 2.0
and LXCFS 2.0 will benefit from a 5 years commitment from upstream to
support this release through frequent backports of all bugfixes.

LXD 2.0 will be supported until the 1st of June 2021.

A walkthrough the LXD 2.0 features can be found here:

You can also try LXD online using our demo server here:

A detailed release announcement may be found here:

The release tarballs may be found at https://linuxcontainers.org/lxd/downloads
or you may get a packaged version of it from Ubuntu or Gentoo.

Our git repository and bug tracker are on Github: https://github.com/lxc/lxd

Additional information on LXD itself may be found on our website:

And we have mailing-lists for user questions and for development (patches):

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