Hi all,

We are happy to announce this release new version (1.0) of snapcraft:

1.0 marks the first stable release of Snapcraft, and it brings many
bugfixes and features particularly relating to ROS support (see the
changelog for more information). With this release, we're wrapping up
features that target snappy Ubuntu Core's Vivid Vervet (15.04) release and
focusing on the 2.x branch which will have an exclusive focus on Xenial
Xerus (16.04).

To consume the latest snapcraft release on ubuntu, we suggest you install
snapcraft package from the snappy tools release ppa:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:snappy-dev/tools
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install snapcraft

If you prefer to keep tracking our daily trunk builds, use our
tools-proposed ppa:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:snappy-dev/tools-proposed
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install snapcraft

If you don't want to consume the examples from the source branch you can
also get them from the ppas above:

    sudo apt-get install snapcraft-examples

After installing this you can find them in
/usr/share/doc/snapcraft-examples/examples. There are some new examples
included in this release as well.
