Both Snapcraft 2.13 and Snapd 2.11 are now available in the main software repositories of the Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, and, according to the announcement, Snapd 2.11 introduces new commands, namely buy, try, find private, disable, refresh, and revert.
These new commands let users buy various applications that are being distributed in the Snappy Store as Snaps for Ubuntu and other GNU/Linux distributions that support the latest Snappy technologies, find private Snaps, disable installed Snaps, as well as to (finally) downgrade any Snap package you might have installed on your OS.
On the other hand, the “refresh” command has also been improved to work with Snaps that are installed in devmode, and it looks like the “snap try” command broken particular Snaps when the user attempted to delete a mounted folder that contained a Snap tree as an installed Snap without removing the Snap first. This has been fixed as well, and a “broken” tag will be displayed next to the broken Snap when running the “snap list” command.
