Looking for opinions on Flatpak isolation for .

Right now we only allow write access to the Downloads directory, which causes problem with drag and drop and sending files in general. We currently considering to give access to the entire home directory, but the big question is: Allow writing or read-only access?

When there is one thing I don't want to care about, then it's updates for software installed on my notebook.

Thanks to with and this works amazingly well.

I recommend to try that :)

By the way, for those of you who didn't already get the update: Riot 1.0.6 is available as flatpak 🎉

Today I learned: There is a new project called . It's a new, native Gnome applications using the keepass password database format (v4), which means it's compatible to KeepassXC.

And it's available on Flathub: flathub.org/apps/details/org.g

It's just a few months old, so give it some time to add more features, The streamlined UI looks quite good!

Project repository: gitlab.gnome.org/World/Passwor

Do you know what's great? When things just work.

Do you know what's even greater? When you merge something, and it causes upgrades on at least a few hundred but maybe a few thousand devices and it just works.

Oh and by the way I merged 1.0.5 recently which is rolled out to all users who use it from there :)

Those of you who run an up-to-date Fedora version will get it installed automatically in background. Just great :)

The Riot 1.0.4 flatpak is out 🎉

Given that you run an up-to-date version of Gnome Software, it'll by installed automatically in background 🙂

Otherwise it's time to run `flatpak update`!

I'm now an official maintainer of the Riot flatpak on flathub 🎉

I will try to make sure that we get the latest and greatest version of Riot as flatpak as soon as possible.

For those who run Riot as Flatpak and want to try the latest version, I created a PR. And buildbot was so friendly to provide a build of it, so you don't have to trust me:

So RedHat build a flatpak version of Firefox perfectly integrated with Gnome and granularly isolated from the rest of the system. Which means even a compromised Firefox can't steal your SSH keys…

There is just one problem: Of course those are all unofficial builds and there is no intend by Mozilla to take this project's work and create official Firefox builds on it. It's really sad…
