Canonical Releases Snapd 2.22 Snappy Daemon for Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04 and 16.10

Snapd 2.22 comes about 17 days after version 2.21, and it introduces a bunch of new features like support for X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts in desktop files, automatic transition of Snaps from ubuntu-core to core, support for a new “reload-command” option in snap.yaml, and the ability to disable sshd (SSH daemon) from the core config. It also improves the OpenGL, network-manager, network-control, and default interfaces, and introduces brand-new ones like unity8-download-manager, core-support, account-control, as well as evolution. Furthermore, Snapd 2.22 attempts to further improve the retry handling on network errors and makes the “snap try” command to work with classic confinement.
