GNOME Software 3.24 to Handle APT & Snap URLs for Easy Installation of Packages

GNOME Software 3.24 Beta is out today, and, according to the internal changelog attached at the end of the article for your reading pleasure, it now handles APT and Snap URLs to allow you to be able to quickly install applications from websites that offer links in the apt:// or snap:// formats. Additionally, it redesigns the Updates panel to display sections, and now lets users sort the applications displayed in the Installed panel by kind. It’s also possible now to launch Flatpak apps after updating them, as well as to install the required Flatpak runtimes when needed during the update process.
