Flatpak 0.6.8 was released this weekend as the newest feature release of this GNOME sandboxing tech formerly known as XDG-App.

New to Flatpak 0.6.8 is a --no-desktop switch for running a Flatpak application outside of a desktop. While the app can be run outside of the desktop mode, there is some functionality loss such as no systemd user scope for that app.

Flatpak 0.6.8 also presents memory leak fixes, greater documentation, initial translations for the CLI, support for RPMs as flatpak-builder archive sources, supporting --arch in flatpak list, and other changes.

More details on Flatpak 0.6.8 can be found via the release notes.
