Bug Description

This is a request to SRU the latest microrelease of the 0.11 series of flatpak into bionic.


New upstream micro release of flatpak, which brings fixes and improvements to the 0.11 series.

Bionic is currently at 0.11.3, whereas 0.11.7 is available upstream.

[Test Case]

The bugs being resolved are not simple to reproduce, see the test plan below for testing flatpak itself.

[Regression Potential]

Flatpak has a test suite, which is run on build across all architectures and passes.

There is also a manual test plan I have confirmed that 0.11.7 passes with this test plan.

Flatpak has autopkgtests enabled which is passing on bionic.

Regression potential is low, and upstream is responsive to any issues raised. (upstream quickly fixed two regressions I found when testing prior versions with the test plan).

note that you shouldn't bump the standards version or change stuff like that on a SRU, there's no need for that and someone else might've rejected the upload

@Timo, Awesome thanks ! I have noted not to bump the standards version for future SRUs and I'll test this tonight :-)
