It Will Soon Be Possible to Deliver Many Popular Games as Snaps for Ubuntu 16.04

So to further advance the adoption of Snaps on the Ubuntu Desktop and Server, Canonical recently changed the release cycle of the snapd daemon to get a new maintenance build every week. And it looks like not only the version number will change, but also snapd’s capabilities.

Among these, we can mention multiple OpenGL improvements, which should allow developers to deliver their games as Snaps to the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or later operating system, as well as better PulseAudio sound server integration, allowing apps to play sound and music.
