Linux on ARMCanonical's Simon Fels announced today that he's working on bringing the Snapd Snappy daemon to the Raspberry Pi Foundation's Raspbian operating system to allow the installation of Snaps.

For those unfamiliar with Snaps, they are Canonical's universal binary format for distribution of sandboxed applications across various GNU/Linux distributions.
