    I wonder when Flatpak will be more reliable with downloads.
    Right now, if you choose to install one or more package and the download gets interrupted, the download has to be started from the beginning.
    This is alwful over limited mobile data traffic, where interruptions are normal to happen either because somebody calls on the phone that offers the connection through a hotspot or because of weak signal of the network.
    Having to redownload packages again instead of resuming the download, not only that it wastes a lot of time on such weak connections, but it wastes the traffic too.

      This is xdg-desktop-portal release not flatpak. The link is correct but title and text misleading.

          So there was no 1.16 release? That explains why some distros like Arch and Fedora shipped version 1.15.4. Pretty questionable decision to ship a pre-release version tbh.

            Are you sure about this? From my experience it does not. And the following bug report seem to agree.

            On a super flaky Wi-Fi connection, downloads are restarted every time, instead of resuming from where it stopped. An example session: $ flatpak install https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-games/plai...

              Huh?

              Introduce a new background monitoring service. This allows desktop environments to list applications that are running in background, that is, sandboxed applications running without a visible window...

                Oh, I have no idea how did I miss that. I guess it's probably because I looked at the Flatpak package status in repology, according to which virtually zero distros shipped Flatpak 1.16 and some ship 1.15.4 instead. Why is that?

                Edit: I just realised this is about xdg-desktop-portal and not Flatpak itself. Probably was a mistake in the headline which is now fixed.

                  Yes. xdg-desktop-portal 1.16 is a stable releases and is included in Fedora 38. Flatpak 1.15.4 is a pre-release and is only included in the pre-release of Fedora. Everything seems to be working as intended other than the headline confusion. I am not sure about repology data but Fedora uses release monitoring and it is accurate.

                    I like how from the article GNOME seems like the headline DE for involvement, but when KDE and Budgie were trying to make accent colors work better across DEs, GNOME did the typical GNOME thing and gave zero shits about it.
