And that’s it!
After a year and a half of intense work by the LXD team, LXD 2.0 has been released today!
LXD 2.0 is our first production-ready release and also a Long Term Support release, meaning that we will be supporting it with frequent bugfix releases until the 1st of June 2021.
This also completes our collection of 2.0 container tools with LXC 2.0, LXCFS 2.0 and now LXD 2.0 all having been released over the past couple of weeks.
Getting started with LXD
I have recently been writing a bit about LXD 2.0, those posts are a great starting point to understand LXD’s goal and start using it for your own containers.
LXD 2.0 is now available in Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 14.04 (through backports) and in the Ubuntu Core Store.
We expect other Linux distributions to pick it up over the next few weeks!
More information on how to install it can be found here.
Try it online
If you just want to see what LXD is all about without having to start a virtual machine or install it on your own machine, you can try it online straight from our website.

So after “a year and a half of intense work” on this piece of software, you are calling something that receives “bugfix releases until the 1st of June 2016” (i. e., less than two months) “a Long Term Support release”? Is this a joke?
Just a typo 🙂
It was meant to be 1st of June 2021, fixed now.
Stephane, thanks for this great tool.
Will there be any “ready made” containers for running old version of software? eg PHP 4
Not that we would publish ourselves, no. But there’s nothing stopping someone from running a public LXD image server with such images.
Can i enable quota inside a container doesn’t seem to work.
Any thought that?
Yes, you can enable quota inside a container. Copy this lines into container host machine.
# lxc config device add XYZ vg_srv disk source=/dev/vg_srv path=/dev/vg_srv
# lxc config device add XYZ dm-X unix-block path=/dev/dm-X
