Flatpak Linux Application Sandboxing & Distribution Framework Learns New Tricks

With Flatpak 0.11.4, the development team updated the “flatpak build” command to allow it to always use multi-arch support, as well as to mount app extensions during the build process. In addition, the “flatpak build-init” command now supports adding of extension points earlier than build-finish by using the –extension argument, and build-finish now supports the –remove-extension argument. Updates were also made to the “flatpak uninstall” command, which can now pick the user or system automatically if they’re not specified, the “flatpak run” command, which received several new options like –no-a11y-bus and –no-documents-portal. Also, users can now use “flatpak remove” (without quotes) as an alias for the “flatpak uninstall” command.
