Flatpak Linux App Sandboxing Format Now Lets You Kill Running Flatpak Instances


Flatpak's Alex Larsson released a new version of the popular Linux application sandboxing and distribution framework that promises to be the future of application distribution across Linux OSes.

Flatpak 1.1.0 is now available as the first snapshot to kick off the development of the Flatpak 1.2 series, which is expected to arrive by the end of the year, promising new features and improvements to make your Flatpak experience better from all angles when you want to deploy apps across multiple Linux-based operating systems.

In this development release, the development team implemented a new "flatpack kill" command to finally let users kill running Flatpak instances, and made the --remote argument optional in the "flatpack install" command for interactive installs, prompting users to choose a remote location to install the app.
