deduplication and delta updates are amazing.

Sure, apps are a bit big as they bundle their libraries…

But then I just updated Totem, a 8.5MB app, and the total download for the update was… 1.0KB. 🤩

Yeah, the idea is awesome. But all Flatpacks devs should use the same framework and libraries or just a couple of versions of them like old stable, stable and nightly. And users should always run all packages from one branch. And developers should update and support all this branches.

So there are many factors make all that impossible to use like you expecting.

@konkor huh, you seem to be the one expecting a lot of things.
