enhancement update in Fedora 28 for flatpak

Status: obsolete

flatpak 0.11.5 release.

  • Fix a regression which caused installation of epiphany and other apps that export multiple .service files to fail.
  • Fix appstream updates in p2p mode.
  • Add documentation for the flatpak portal
  • flatpak remove is now an alias for flatpak uninstall.
  • flatpak uninstall now picks system or user automatically if not specified
  • New appstream branch format which is more efficient to distribute, the old is still generated for backwards compat.
  • Appstream data now contains compatible arches (for applications that doesn't exist for the primary arch). For example, an i386-only app is now listed in the x86-64 appstream.
  • The flatpak version is included in the user agent when downloading.
  • The Flatpak-Ref http header is set to the currently installing ref when downloading.
  • New argument --timestamp in build-commit-from.
  • When updating many apps we now only prune the local repo when all updates are done, making multi-app updates faster.
  • flatpak build now always allows multiarch use.
  • flatpak build now mounts app extensions during build.
  • flatpak build-init now supports --extension to add extension points earlier than build-finish. Also build-finish now supports --remove-extension.
  • New flatpak portal allows applications to sandbox themselves and restart a newer version of themselves.
  • New flatpak run options: --no-a11y-bus, --no-documents-portal.
  • Initial support for end-of-life:ing applications.
  • New option X-Flatpak-RunOptions in exported desktop/files allow you to specify no-a11y-bus and no-documents-portal.
  • Support for tagged extension points, which is useful if you want to use the same extension id (but maybe different versions) multiple times in an app.
  • We now export .service files for names that the app is allowed to own on the session bus.
  • libflatpak got new methods for listing remotes by type.
  • libflatpak now has support in FlatpakRemoteRef for getting remote metadata such as end-of-life, download size, metadata etc.
  • There was some internal restructuring on how installs/updates are done which should improve performance and maintainability.

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.
