You Can Now Run Flatpak Universal Apps Outside a Linux Desktop Environment

Flatpak 0.6.8 is here to introduce a bunch of goodies for those who want to either distribute their open source projects as universal binaries for GNU/Linux operating systems that support the Flatpak standalone format, or users who like an easy method of installing the latest software releases on their distributions. New features include the implementation of the “–no-desktop” command-line argument that promises to let users run Flatpack applications outside the graphical desktop environment of their GNU/Linux operating system. Of course, some of the functionality will be lost when running Flatpak apps this way.
