Canonical Releases Snapcraft 2.17 Tool for Creating Snaps on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

The biggest new features implemented in the Snapcraft 2.17 release are the implementation of the “snapcraft list-keys” and “snapcraft-register-key” commands, globbing support for the “organize” keyword for parts, as well as a brand new “python” plugin that combines code from both “python2” and “python3” plugins. If you’re familiar with Snapcraft, and you just want to update your installation to today’s 2.17 release, you can do so right now by installing Snapcraft 2.17 from the official repositories of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus). In the meantime, you should also check out a brand new app that offers you a graphical user interface, Snapcraft GUI, making easier to package your apps as Snaps.
