Upcoming change to the output of 'snap info'

snap info is going to start showing the date the snap was released to the channel, as requested in lp:1758288. This should be landing as part of 2.37.

If you’re manually parsing the output of snap info, this might break things. If it’s a problem, speak up now!

(also as mentioned in that bug in passing, we’ll be tweaking the alignment a little bit – but this shouldn’t break anything).

As an example, here’s the output of snap info go using the new feature:
