Solus 3 Released

From the Solus site:

On behalf of the Solus team and community, we’re extremely proud to announce the immediate availability of Solus 3. This is the third iteration of Solus since our move to become a rolling release operating system. Unlike the previous iterations, however, this is a release and not a snapshot. We’ve now moved away from the “regular snapshot” model to accommodate the best hybrid approach possible - feature rich releases with explicit goals and technology enabling, along with the benefits of a curated rolling release operating system.

This release features out-of-the-box support for snaps, universal software packages for Linux. Support for snaps relieves pressure from software vendors to target a specific platform by sharing a unified target across all Linux distributions. For our users, they gain access to a wide variety of software that may not meet our package inclusion criteria, such as server software, as well as enabling an improved distribution method for Third Party software.

Support for Snaps was made possible due to fantastic cross-platform collaboration between Canonical’s Snapcraft and Ubuntu teams and Solus, which is the first non-Ubuntu distribution to feature full snap confinement leveraging AppArmor, offering feature parity with the reference Ubuntu implementation.
Are any LQ members using Solus 3? If so, what do you think?
