Canonical Releases Snapcraft 2.38 Tool to Improve Support for Classic Snaps

Announced just a few minutes ago by Sergio Schvezov, Snapcraft 2.38 will soon make its way into the stable software repositories of supported Ubuntu Linux releases, as well as other GNU/Linux distributions. The biggest change that landed in this new version is better support for classic Snaps, which will allow for true isolation for host’s dynamically linked executables. An advanced grammar functionality was present in Snapcraft for a while now, especially when we talk about the build- and stage packages, which lets packagers pick a different set of packages for each of the hardware architectures they support. In Snapcraft 2.38, Canonical introduces the grammar capabilities to the source keyboard, allowing devs to specify a different source for each arch.
