Canonical’s Snappy Now Supports Latest Nvidia Drivers on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Snapd 2.32.2 is now available to download and should be coming soon to the stable software repositories of your favorite, Snappy-enabled GNU/Linux distribution. What’s exciting about this release is that it enables Snappy the use Nvidia’s most recent proprietary graphics drivers in Snap apps on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and similar operating systems. Other than that, Snappy can now use the latest YAML parser, allow devs to grant write access to writable content slots, and immediately recompute the next refresh time when setting schedules. The Fedora 27 tests were switched to manual in Snapd 2.32.2, which no longer excludes /dev/ttymxcX serial ports and only sends authentication data if a custom Snappy store is in use.
