Hey there,

After 1.5 years of development, we've finally tagged a new feature
release of LXC.

LXC 2.1 is a normal feature release coming with a year of upstream
support. For production environments, you should stick to LXC 2.0 which
benefits from much longer support.

This new release of LXC introduces a few new security features and
various improvements to the LXC tools and templates.

But more importantly, it's a transitional release ahead of LXC 3.0 to be
released early next year. LXC 3.0 will deprecate a number of tools and
change a large number of the existing configuration keys.

LXC 2.1 will issue warnings whenever the user is using something which
will be removed or renamed in the upcoming LXC 3.0.
An lxc-update-config tool is also provided to automatically convert your
containers' configurations to the new format.

More details about LXC 2.1 can be found in the release announcement:
