Flatpak now allows closing instances using the 'kill' command


Flatpak developer Alex Larsson has released a new version of this great sandboxing app that promises to be the future of app distribution across Linux flavors.

Flatpak 1.1.0 is available right now, ushering in the development of the Flatpak 1.2 series, which is expected to arrive before the end of the year, promising new features and enhancements to make the Flatpak experience better from every angle.

In this release, the development team I implement the new command "Flatpak kill" so that users can close instances of FlatpakFurthermore, the - - remote argument is already optional in the "flatpak install" command for interactive installations, when using it you can choose a remote address to install the application.

On the other hand, Flatpak 1.1.0 adds support for the - - columns option to all table printing commands so that users can specify exactly what they want to see, support for the - - commits argument for the "flatpak repo" command to list commits, finally, support for the - - info argument that shows information about the Flatpak repository.

The "Flatpak list" command has been updated to support run-time filtering and the "Flatpak uninstall" command now supports the - - delete-data argument that allows users to delete application directories in the parent folder. If the application is not specified, the data of all uninstalled applications will be deleted.

Flatpak 1.1.0 takes a step up from the Flatpak 1.2 series. You don't have to install Flatpak 1.1.0 on your distro to enjoy what's new, but you can download the tarball if you want to try. We recommend that you wait for Flatpak 1.2 before upgrading to the 1.0 series.
