Release notes 

Hello snapcrafters!

We are pleased to announce the release of version 2.12 of snapcraft:
https://launchpad.net/snapcraft/+milestone/2.12

This is an exciting release with many new features and improvements. Among the features to highlight:

- New parts ecosystem where remote parts are managed with some new snapcraft commands such as, update, search and define.
- Many improvements to the parts parser backend.
- More store interaction straight from snapcraft, `snapcraft register` is now available to register your snap name.
- Subversion support as a source.
- A gulp plugin
- A qmake plugin
- The possibility of loading from a .snapcraft.yaml (<dot>snapcraft<dot>yaml) for those wanting to hide this file from their trees.

Among improvements:

- rpath with $ORIGIN is properly taken care of now (no more /home/... paths added).
- Error message improvements across the board.
- cleanbuild now properly creates ephemeral containers.

This release has seen many contributions from outside of the snapcraft core team, so we want to give a shout out to these folks, here's a team thank you for:

- Simon Quigley
- Bayard Randel
- Evan Dandrea
- Daniel Holbach
- Rob Loach
- Joe Talbott

To consume the latest snapcraft release on Xenial Xerus (16.04), we
suggest you install the snapcraft package from the Ubuntu Archives:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install snapcraft
