Welcome to the v1.0.2-rc.0 release of containerd!
This is a pre-release of containerd

This is the second patch release for containerd in the 1.0 series. There are several fixes to reduce memory usage and garbage collection pressure in the shim. The content store has a few fixes to address cases where download resumption wasn't working properly. The image store has fixes to be more efficient and to handle edge cases in the garbage collector.

The most critical fix addresses a hang in runc that can happen due to a race condition around FIFOs. Make sure to update your runc binary if you are affected. The fix is described in opencontainers/runc#1698. Make sure to update to the runc version in to ensure you are not affected.

In addition to the above, #2063 addresses an issue where duplicate directory entries can land in a layer diff if both the metadata and a child entry are changed.
