Hello snapcrafters!

We are pleased to announce the release of version `2.24` of snapcraft 
has been released:

Here's the list of features that you can find in this new release:

- Experimental `classic` confinement allowing to create snaps for non 
pure snappy systems and have them see the full file system.
- `alias` support for app entries in `apps`, which allows multiple top 
level commands per snap.
- New core part atrritbures, `prepare`, `build` and `install`, which 
support scriptlets to run **before**, **replacing** and **after** the 
`build` step of a plugin respectively (`snapcraft help plugins` for more 
- New command, `list-registered`, to have a view of your snaps on the 
store and some relevant attributes.

Many minor fixes are available as well:

- `ldd` crawling for system libraries have been improved with more 
standard library paths to check within the `stage` directory.
- Multiple `core` plugins have been updated to not show deprecation 
- Multiple parser improvements for shared parts on the wiki.

core team, so we want to give a shout out to these folks, here's a team
