Snapd 2.14.2 Snappy Daemon Released to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Fedora 24 (COPR)

Snapd is the brain behind the Snappy technologies used for installing and running Snap universal binary packages in Ubuntu Linux and other GNU/Linux distributions that support it, and Snapd 2.14.2 is currently the most stable and advanced version, available now for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and Fedora 24 (in the COPR repos). Coming hot on the heels of Snapcraft 2.16 Snappy creator tool, Snapd 2.14.2 implements the “–force-dangerous” option, which can be used when attempting to install Snaps without assertions, adds support for installing Snaps or removing them based on their revision number, as well as support for downloading Snaps using the new “snap download” command.
