KDE Plasma’s Discover Package Manager Gets Better Snap and Flatpak Support

After sharing last week more info on the maturity of Flatpak support in KDE Plasma’s Discover package manager, now Nathaniel Graham published details on some new user-facing highlights of what’s done in Plasma Discover in the last week or so, and there’s quite a bunch of improvements for both Snap and Flatpak universal binary formats. For Snaps, Plasma Discover now no longer lets users click the “Install” button during the installation of Snaps, displays information on the license for Snaps, as well as the size of Snaps that aren’t installed on user’s computer. For Flatpak apps, it now shows the version number if that info is defined in the AppStream file.
