You’ll Soon Be Able to Run GNOME 3.26 Apps on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS via Snaps

Well, it turns out that they’ve been working on a Platform Snap for the recently released GNOME 3.26 desktop environment, which should allow users of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to run the latest apps from the GNOME 3.26 Stack as Snaps, as well as developers to package their apps as Snaps. Will Cooke also said the Snappy team is working hard these days on enabling more desktop specific features on the Snapd daemon, which should hit the stable repositories soon on all supported Ubuntu Linux releases, as well as any other GNU/Linux distribution where Canonical’s Snappy technologies are supported.
