Snapcraft 2.34 has been released this week and it's now available in the main repositories of various Ubuntu Linux releases that support the Snappy technologies, bringing a new plugin to support GNOME's JHBuild tool for building the entire GNOME desktop environment or select packages from the version control system. The jhbuild plugin will allow developers to more easily package apps from the GNOME Stack as Snaps, which could be easily installed on supported Ubuntu releases, as well as any other GNU/Linux distribution that implemented support for Canonical's Snappy technologies.
