Nuvola 4.9 Updates 3 Scripts and Adds Few Tweaks

Nuvola 4.9 was released. It is mostly a maintenance release as most of energy is invested in the Chromium port of Nuvola and the development of other features has slowed down. The current status of this ambitious effort will be described in a separate announcement.

To install Nuvola, follow installation instructions at the Nuvola Apps Repository Index. To update Nuvola, run flatpak update --system && flatpak update --user in terminal (as a regular user, not root/sudo) or use a package manager which supports Flatpak (e.g. a recent GNOME Software application).

This blog post is targeted to users. If you are a developer or a packager, make sure you are subscribed to Nuvola-devel mailing list to receive a more technical release announcement.

Nuvola Contributes to Good Angel Foundation

Jiri Janousek, the core developer of Nuvola Apps project, is glad to contribute a part of the project’s revenue to the Good Angel foundation. This way, he can regularly help families with children, which face financial distress as a result of severe illness. Even small monetary donations can help these families overcome a tough period.
