Canonical Releases Snapcraft 2.28 Snap Creator Tool with over 50 Improvements

Snapcraft 2.28 is here one and a half months after the release of Snapcraft 2.27, and it appears to have already landed in the stable repositories of Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), which we’re currently using on our PCs at the moment of writing. According to the changelog attached below, a total of 55 changes are included in this update. Prominent new features include support for packaging Snapcraft itself as a Snap, updated python, kernel, godeps, plainbox-provider, and catkin plugins with various improvements or bug fixes, implementation of an optional “source-checksum” property, as well as the enablement of delta uploads by default for the store.
