    You mean Gnome Software? Kde's Apper? Both that support package-kit and happen to support Flatpak through that? Since Flatpak 0.5?

    You know, the command line died in the beginning of the nineties and the most popular and used tech devices (smartphones) do not even have a keyboard, so... if one day the Linux developers realize this, for sure the Linux market quota of 1% will grow.
    We live in the click-and-done era, people. And even that is ending, the speak-and-done era is taking over. And the command line died in the beginning of the nineties with ms-dos, so why the hell do we keep on holding our Linux back with this basic mistakes?

    As current de facto maintainer of Steam container on Flathub I'd say new runtime is very next item on roadmap after cloud syncing workaround is tested and merged. See https://github.com/flathub/com.valve...team/issues/60
    New runtime was already reported to fix multiple bugs

    Does it mean that the runtime increased in size and bundles even more Gnome components ?

    Phoronix: Flatpak Gets New FreeDesktop SDK 18.08 Runtime

    Flatpak now has access to an updated FreeDesktop SDK runtime that is built on their new BuildStream build system rather than Yocto and has other improvements...
