Bug Description

This is a request to SRU the latest microrelease of the flatpak 1.0 series into bionic.


New upstream microrelease of flatpak, which brings backported fixes and improvements - the main being allowing use of extra_data in runtimes (which is required by the openh264 extension).

Bionic is currently at 1.0.8, whereas 1.0.9 is available upstream.

[Test Case]

The main fix in this release is allowing for use of extra_data in runtimes, I have tested this works with a test repository, 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 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Process/Merges/TestPlan/flatpak. I have confirmed that 1.0.9 passes with this test plan on bionic.

Flatpak has autopkgtests enabled http://autopkgtest.ubuntu.com/packages/f/flatpak which is passing on bionic.

Regression potential is low, and upstream is very responsive to any issues raised.

Yes, in Bionic at 1.0.8, I get this warning when I try to update openh264:

For me this message mentions multiple supported versions: flatpak (1.4.2;1.2.5;1.0.9;)
So updating from 1.0.8 to 1.0.9 would be enough to be able to update org.freedesktop.Platform.openh264.

Awesome, thanks !

I have run the test plan on a Bionic VM, which passed all tests successfully - I have noted the version of flatpak used below. Autopkgtest's are also passing. Therefore I am marking this as verification-done-bionic.
