The snappy team is happy to announce another release of the 2.23.6 series. This release focuses on improving the robustness of the configuration hook system.

The new release is available in the core snap in the stable channel and should be making it’s way to you soon automatically.

It is also available in the 14.04, 16.04, 16.10 and 17.04 proposed pockets. More distributions will follow at their own pace.

To install this new release just run the following command:

$ sudo snap refresh core

Or wait for an automatic refresh.

On the classic distribution you can also enable -proposed (see and install snapd from there.

The changes in detail:
	• tests: fix interfaces-cups-control for zesty
	• configstate,hookstate: timeout the configure hook after 5 mins, report failures
	• packaging: rename the file shipping snap-confine AA profile to workaround dpkg bug #858004
	• many: ignore configure hook failures on core refresh to ensure upgrades are always possible
	• snapstate: restart as needed if we undid unlinking aka relinked core or kernel snap
	• support for snap core set pi-config.framebuffer_{width,height} (and a bunch more, see for all options) config.txt setting

The source is available at, with test results and more discussion at:
