Flatpak 1.2 Linux App Sandboxing Framework Released with Various Improvements

Flatpak is one of the most used Linux application sandboxing and distribution framework among GNU/Linux distributions, allowing developers and users alike to easily and quickly install the latest versions of applications as soon as they are available upstream. When Flatpak reached maturity with the 1.0 version announced last year in August, it promised to take the lead and beat Canonical’s Snap universal binary format used by the Ubuntu Linux operating systems with innovative features. Now, six months later, Flatpak 1.2 is here with more improvements.
