Hello snapcrafters!

We are pleased to announce the release of version 2.6 of snapcraft:
This release includes some interesting improvements and features such as:

- Better snapcraft clean support that can work per step (pull, build,
  stage and snap) and tracks depdendant parts better (use of after).
- Support of `setup` for static non-declared assets (such as icons).

We have also improved our testing, updated documentation and resolved
errors, worth of mention are fixes for:

- missing `archictures` when snapping from a directory,
- filtering out include and library paths that don't exist when
- support for building the os snap (from a directory).

To consume the latest snapcraft release on Xenial Xerus (16.04), we
suggest you install the snapcraft package from the Ubuntu Archives:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install snapcraft

If you don't want to consume the examples from the source branch you can
also install the examples package:

    sudo apt install snapcraft-examples

After installing this you can find them in
