Snapcraft 2.8 Now Live in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Adds Support for Snappy’s New Interfaces

New features in Snapcraft 2.8 include better detection of some of the steps that need to be executed for showing the current version of the snapraft.yaml file, support for using the “cleanbuild” command to make sure you have a clean build of your snaps, as well as support for Snappy’s new interface, which is still work in progress.

Starting with Snapcraft 2.8, support for Snappy’s “config” setting has been completely removed, and, by popular request, the “geoip” feature has been disabled by default. Users can enable it in Snapcraft using the “–enable-geoip” flag via the command-line.
