Canonical Releases Snapd 2.23.6 Snappy Daemon for Ubuntu 16.10, 16.04, and 14.04

Snapd 2.23.6 is now the latest stable version of the daemon, available for all supported Ubuntu releases. It brings robustness improvements to the configuration hook system by implementing a 5-minute timeout for the configure hook, along with the ability to report any failure. Additionally, Snapd 2.23.6 fixes to the interfaces-cups-control component for the upcoming Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) operating system, renames the file that contains the snap-confine AA profile to “workaround dpkg,” and updates the snapstate to restart when needed if the core or kernel snap was relinked.
