MAAS 2.5.0 beta 3 is available for Ubuntu Cosmic & Bionic and can be installed from our PPA as follows:

thanks for the update! I’ll spin up an instance with the ppa whilst I await a new snap package for my dev cluster…

Other than the new features and fixes, what are the general differences between the edge, beta and stable channels in snap? IE is there additional instrumentation and tooling related to logging and so on? As all the channels need --devmode at the moment I assume there’s no security changes currently between them.
