GNOME 3.30 Desktop Environment Is Now Available on Flathub as Flatpak Runtimes

Dubbed “Almeria” after the host city of the GUADEC 2018 conference, the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment was released on September 5, 2018, with numerous new features and lots of improvements for fans of the GNOME desktop, which is used by default in dozens of GNU/Linux distributions, including Ubuntu. But the GNOME desktop environment is not a small project, so it takes a few weeks to arrive in the software repositories of various popular distros. This usually happens when the first point release, GNOME 3.30.1 in this case, is out, which was released last week. And now, it’s available for installation as Flatpak runtimes from the Flathub repository.
