Flatpak now allows you to close instances using the kill command

Alex Larsson developer of Flatpak has released a new version of this great sandboxing application that promises to be the future of the distribution of applications in the different flavors of Linux.

Flatpak 1.1.0 is available right now, giving way to the development of the Flatpak 1.2 series, which is expected to arrive before the end of the year, promising new features and improvements to make the Flatpak experience better at all angles.

In this release, the development team implemented the new "Flatpak kill" command so that users can close Flatpak instances, in addition, the - - remote argument is already optional in the "flatpak install" command for interactive installations, by 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 argument - - commits for the command "flatpak repo" for lists the commits, finally, support for the argument - info that shows information about the Flatpak repository.

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

Flatpak 1.1.0 takes a step forward to the Flatpak 1.2 series. You do not have to install Flatpak 1.1.0 in your distro to enjoy the news, but you can download the tarball file if you want to try. We recommend waiting for Flatpak 1.2 before updating the 1.0 series.
