Hey everyone,

A new release of the wifi-ap and pulseaudio snaps were pushed into the
candidate channel. This release includes several improvements for both


* Switched to a unix domain socket instead of a local TCP endpoint to
provide secure access to the management service REST API endpoint via a
content interface based slot.

* The management service now controls the access point process directly
instead of both being two independent systemd service units. This makes
coordination and application of configuration changes a lot easier.

* New wifi-ap.status command is now available which shows the current
status of the AP.

* Improve configuration wizard which now has an auto mode as well which is
executed directly after the installation of the snap to provide an
out-of-the-box experience and directly spawn up an access point users can
connect to. Wizard can be manually invoked too and guides the user through
the configuration of the access point.

* Added extensive testing of the whole snap via spread


This is the first release of the snap. We currently only support running
pulseaudio in system mode and with that only support Ubuntu Core devices.
Installing on classic desktop devices is possible but not yet supported.

Please note that we require a kernel with ALSA support enabled which is not
yet the case for all reference devices like the Raspberry Pi 2 or 3.


An overview of which revisions / versions of the particular snaps are
available in which channel is available at https://docs.google.com/

The snaps have passed our engineering QA and will now be tested by the
platform and commercial QA teams before the new versions are pushed to the
stable channel.
