Beside this, new snapcraft is also compatible with ruby based snaps as it also comes with ruby plugin and is compatible with various Ruby version.
From the blog:
On this new version we added more information to the build manifest, like the contents of lock files, the debs and snaps installed in the machine, information from uname and the fingerprint of the container used for the build. To record the build manifest, set the environment variable
SNAPCRAFT_BUILD_INFO. The manifest will be saved and distributed inside the snap. After the build, you can inspect it in the prime/snap/manifest.yaml.
