Hi all,

on top of 2.23 we released a small bugfix release: 2.23.1.

We noticed that an incompatiblity in the content interface slipped
into the 2.23 release and this is fixed now in 2.23.1. We used the
opportunity to fix some more small bugs in 2.23.1, most importantly a
bug that can result in an upgrade failure for snaps with hooks.

The new release is available in the "core" (and "ubuntu-core") snap on
the "candidate" channel and also in the Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 16.10
"proposed" pockets and in 17.04. More distributions will follow at
their own pace.

To install this new release you need to run the following command:

  $ sudo snap refresh --candidate core

On the classic distribution you can help testing by enabling -proposed
and then installing snapd [1].

Please let us know if you experience any issues or if you have

Enjoy the new release,
 Michael (on behalf of the snappy team)
