Thanks so much and congratulations to everybody who worked hard to put in
place this initial public release of Ubuntu Core, a minimalist Linux
distribution that uses snaps as its building blocks. Special thanks as well
to Michael, Oliver Grawert, Martin Pitt, and others who've put all the bits
in right offsets to have a working image today.

Over the next few weeks we'll be including a small set of pending features
and polishing this image until we have a stable golden release.

Please remember that despite some of those conversations being about Ubuntu
Core, at its core we have snaps and snapd still. The vast majority of
features we talk about for Ubuntu Core benefits all the distributions in
which snapd works today.

Hold on tight and join us in this exciting trip.

> Ubuntu Core 16 Images
> =====================
> The Ubuntu snappy team is happy to announce the first beta images for
> Ubuntu Core 16.  The images use the snapd package manager to install
> and update all components of the system including kernel, core, gadget
> and applications.
> The images are available for PC (amd64, i386) and Raspberry Pi2
> (armhf). More architectures and boards (arm64 dragonboard, pi3) will

> The images are bootable, the pc image can be booted directly in
> qemu-kvm or virtualenv. The pi2 image can be written to a sdcard via:
>     unxz ubuntu-core-16-pc.img.xz
>     dd if= ubuntu-core-16-pc.img of=/dev/sdXX
> Where /dev/sdXX is the path of your sd card.
> After booting the image you can enter your Ubuntu SSO email and it
> will automatically create a matching user with the right ssh keys. If
> you do not have an Ubuntu SSO account yet you can create one at:
