Distrowatch last edited by
elementary OS is an Ubuntu-based desktop Linux distribution. Some of its more interesting features include a custom desktop environment called Pantheon and many custom applications. The developers have published a new beta snapshot which previews features coming to elementary OS 6.0. There are many changes in the works, including an updated installer, dark theme, development tools, and additional support for Flatpak. “A major shift for elementary OS 6 is the inclusion of Flatpak apps out of the box, as well as an entirely Flatpak-based AppCenter ecosystem. We’ve created and are shipping a Flatpak platform and SDK that include all of the FreeDesktop, GNOME, and elementary libraries and technologies your apps will need to be built as a Flatpak - think of the platform as the elementary OS base in Flatpak form. We’ve updated the relevant developer docs to include information about packaging your app as a Flatpak. If you already have an app on AppCenter or are developing one for elementary OS 6, we highly encourage you to familiarize yourself with writing a Flatpak manifest and testing your app as a Flatpak, as all AppCenter apps in elementary OS 6 and beyond will be built as Flatpaks.” The release announcement has further information.
