Snappy Ubuntu Core 16.04 LTS Will Support Private Snaps, Says Mark Shuttleworth

After one month, Mark Shuttleworth replies on October 15, 2015, that the Snappy Ubuntu team will concentrate their efforts on providing better security and performance to the core snap delivery mechanisms, and that the system’s kernel will be split out from the image allowing users to use their kernel of choice. Additionally, the founder of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution confirms that the ability for device vendors to review and approve updates for their own snappy apps is on their to-do list, along with support for private snaps, but it won’t be available until the release of Snappy Ubuntu Core 16.04 LTS.
