Canonical Announces Snapcraft 2.19 Snap Creator Tool for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Snapcraft 2.19 comes just one week after the release of the previous maintenance version, Snapcraft 2.18, and promises to add “kinetic” support to the “catkin” plugin, update the “nodejs” plugin to use “run” commands, implement a top-level “sign-build” command for build signing, and add support for validating and gating Snaps through two new commands, “gated” and “validate.” As usual, you can use the commands attached at the end of the article to enjoy the latest Snapcraft release on your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Also, it’s now available for Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkey Yak) users too. Newcomers, need to run the first two commands in the Terminal app to install Snapcraft.
