Hello Snapcrafters, the team has tagged 7.5.0 and made it available on the candidate channel on May 19, 2023 ; for those consuming from the candidate channel, you should be on it already. For those that want to test, you can switch by running:
snap refresh snapcraft --channel 7.x/candidate
An upcoming point release is going to be made to this candidate channel to fix the riscv64 build and to use one of the latest Craft Parts point releases.
There are raw changelog notes available on https://github.com/snapcore/snapcraft/releases/tag/7.5.0 .
We appreciate the feedback.
The tentative date for promoting to stable is 2023-07-18T03:00:00Z .
This is an additional release to the 7.x line, mostly bug fixes. Recall the previous announcement; the next release 8.0.0 will be removing support for core18 as it has entered ESM https://canonical.com/blog/ubuntu-18-04-eol-for-devices; ensure Snapcraft is installed or refreshed from the 7.x track if you require support for core18.
