I'm on 6.2.5 on everything I have it installed on. But Arch should have 6.3 by the end of the week. Flatpak (which is every other distro I use except Arch) by the middle of next month.

Spoke too soon. Flatpak actually updated to 6.3 today, just got it on my Debian install on my Latitude 5289.

So far seems pretty good. Faster startup than I remember the 6.0/6.1being, but about the same speed opening as 6.2.x. UI looks about the same, but has more options for UI look. Overall, in my (exceedingly limited) testing thus far, I'd say it's a good release, but nothing earth shattering. It's definitely just a progressively better version of previous 6.x versions.

How much are you using Flatpack out of curiosity?

I'm using it for several programs on Debian, Neon, and Fedora (hw-probe, pinta, libreoffice, gimp). Only on Arch am I not using it.

I started using it due to Pinta really. Several months ago now, Pinta's ubuntu LTS (and therefore Neon) build was highly unstable. Would crash if you tried to do anything (would open fine, just couldn't actually use it). So I switched to the flatpak as it worked. Then I noticed libreoffice was newer version in flatpak than in Debian, Ubuntu, OR Fedora. So I switched that. Then I noticed Gimp was also newer version than in any of the 3 OS's (this was when FEdora was still 29, 30 is current gimp, but I'm sticking with flatpak). But it all started just because I wanted a WORKING version of Pinta (which has long since been fixed in Ubuntu, but I'm sticking to flatpak at this point).

I was curious as youve mentioned before that Flatpack installs some things that you couldnt, or didnt want to have to remove when you uninstall a Flatpack app.

Yeah, that's no longer an issue. That was a problem with the version of flatpak installed on Debian 9, because of how old it was, it didn't actually handle removing entirely correct. With the newer versions of flatpak, it works as it should.
