Flatpak Universal Linux Package Supports Local Path References for Git Sources

Flatpak 0.6.9 is now the latest version, and it promises to add many great enhancements, among which we can mention the ability to pass partial references every time a terminal command takes a runtime or application name, as well as a brand new command called build-commit-from. Application developers who want to package their apps and distribute it in the Flatpak format, can use the above-mentioned command for creating new commits based on the contents of an existing commit, which can be from another local repository or a remote one.
