Flatpak 0.6.14 Linux Application Sandboxing and Distribution Framework Out Now

Flatpak 0.6.14 is now the latest and most advanced version of the universal Linux app container that aims to become the future of application distribution across all major GNU/Linux platforms. Bundled with bubblewrap 0.1.4, the new Flatpak release requires OSTree 2016.14, which makes some old workarounds unnecessary. Another interesting change implemented in today’s Flatpak 0.6.14 release is the ability to ignore dependencies installed only for the user when installing a Flatpak package system-wide. Additionally, Flatpak’s “install –from” command was updated to re-use existing remotes, which should avoid making redundant origin remotes.
