Update flatpak and portals to latest versions

flatpak 0.99.1

This is the first pre-release before flatpak 1.0. This is considered feature-complete and we expect no features or major changes before 1.0, only bugfixes.

Note: There were some (minor) API changes in the FlatpakTransaction APIs that were added in 0.11.8, so please don't use the old version. (Note: I know of no user of this API).

Changes since last minor release:

  • Ostree 2018.6 is required, and with this, the p2p code in flatpak is made non-optional.
  • flatpak install/update/ininstall now lists all the operations that it will do and asks for confirmation before starting.
  • In the above confirmation the permissions (new permissions for updates) are shown for all applications.
  • The FlatpakTranscation API has a new ::ready signal that allows users to do similar confirmation prompts.
  • P2P updates are more efficient
  • system-wide installation uses less fsync calls so should installation should be faster.
  • New ssh agent permissions allows granting an app ssh access.

xdg-desktop-portal 0.11

  • Add initial support for Snap packages.
  • Fix memory leaks when ownership of bus names changes.
  • Include docs for the session, remote desktop and screencast portals.
  • document-portal: Be more flexible validating apps' IDs.
  • document-portal: Be more strict when checking & granting file access.
  • file-chooser: Fix crash with unitialized data in the save dialog.
  • open-uri: Don't ever skip showing the dialog if a threshold is set.
  • open-uri: Don't register http: URIs for sandboxed handlers.
  • remote-desktop: Use the correct device type values.
  • screencast: Fix synchronization issue with PipeWire.
  • Import permission store from flatpak
  • Import document portal from flatpak
  • Add remote desktop portal

  • Add "interactive" mode to screenshot portal
  • file-chooser: Don't return document paths for paths the application has direct access to
  • Handle newer version of bubblewrap
  • New abstraction for application info, supporting multiple sandbox technologies
  • Add basic test suite

xdg-desktop-portal-gtk 0.11

  • remotedesktop: Add support for the 'finish' flag of NotifyPointerAxis.
  • remotedesktop: Correctly expose device types supporting remote control.
  • print: Add a 'Print Preview' button (requires evince-previewer).
  • screenshot: Make sure the dialog is shown in the interactive case.
  • Fix critical in file chooser
  • Add options to screenshot portals
  • Add screencast and remote portal implementations

pipewire 0.1.9

  • Various build fixes
  • Do more permission checks
  • Add support for doing async connections. This can be used to make connections through the portal later.
  • Fix device creation from the GStreamer device monitor
  • v4l2 experiment with controls
  • move rtkit to a module to avoid dbus dependency
