News Tech: In addition to networked access to X11 and PulseAudio services if an app has network access and support for a new DeploySideloadCollectionID key in flatpakref and flatpakrepo files to enable the setting of collection IDs when adding a remote from one of those repo files, Flatpak 1.14 is here as a significant update to the Flatpak 1.12 series, which was released in October 2021.

In this release, the command-line interface has been revised to better notify users of apps that (indirectly) employ end-of-life runtime extensions and to take pending transactions into account when printing these end-of-life notifications.

The ability to export AppStream metadata for the host system to use, support for the —socket=gpg-agent option for flatpak run and related commands, support for sub-sandboxes to own MPRIS names on the session bus, support for the -u short command-line argument as an alias for commands that accept the —user argument, and more are all new in Flatpak 1.14.

Additionally, Flatpak 1.14 modifies the uninstall command to request user approval prior to deleting active runtimes or active runtime extensions. Additionally, command-line completion is now provided for the Fish shell, and the SELinux policy has been modified to cover symbolic links in /var/lib/flatpak.

I advise holding off on updating your installations until Flatpak 1.14 is in the main archives of your GNU/Linux distribution since you’ll need to update it from the software repositories. Flatpak 1.14 is currently accessible for download from the project’s GitHub page for OS maintainers.
