The LXC team is pleased to announce the release of LXC 1.1!
This new upstream release is the result of the work of over 80
The highlights are:
- Introduction of checkpoint/restore support for containers through CRIU.
This allows to serialize the container running state to disk, for
live migration or for later local restoration of the container.
- Support for running systemd as the init system inside the container
was also greatly improved and should now work by default both for
privileged and unprivileged containers when combined with lxcfs and a
- Init scripts have now all been updated to provide the same feature
set, which means that a lxcbr0 bridge with a DHCP and DNS server
(dnsmasq) is now the default for anyone using LXC. We currently provide
init scripts for systemd, sysvinit and upstart.
Those are just highlights, there are a lot more new features and user
experience improvements. For a full list, see:

This release will be supported until January 2016 or 2 months after the
next LXC release, whichever comes last.
We therefore still recommend that people using LXC in production
environments where long term support is important stick to LXC 1.0 which
is supported until April 2019 and receives frequent bugfix updates.
