Canonical Releases Snapcraft 2.23 Snap Creator for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and 16.10

Snapcraft 2.23 is here almost a month after the release of Snapcraft 2.22, which introduced support for building gadget Snaps and RPM as a source entry, and it looks like it’s a consistent update that adds many exciting new features and improvements, starting with the implementation of the long anticipated FTP support for sources. The Snapcraft 2.23 release also makes it possible for Snaps to be downloaded from the Snappy Store without login, improves the nodejs plugin by allowing it to be installed during pull to support npm run, and it adds TERM=dumb support to indicators, for which it improves Content-Encoding set support.
