Snapd 2.0.10 Snappy Tool Now Available in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Here’s What’s New

snapd 2.0.10 lands safely for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS users, bringing many goodies to those who have already adopted the Snap universal binary format. Release highlights include three new interfaces that give snapd access to the optical device, webcam, and an external media player connected via the MPRIS (Media Player Remote Interfacing Specification) D-Bus interface. Moreover, there’s now support for GVFS (GNOME Virtual File System) shares in the Home directory, temporarily allowing socketcall by default, and better support for running snapd inside LXC (Linux Containers).
