Flathub Updates: Monday May 16, 2022 – Late Edition!

New Apps

Three “new” packages landed in Flathub so far today. We say “new” in scare quotes, because while one is a brand new application, having only existed for five days, the other two are a bit older. Let’s dive in!


Recorder 1.0.0 was published πŸ“Ό

Another day, another fresh application published by Alex Kryuchkov – no biggie! We’ve written previously, previously about Alex’s small, but perfectly formed Linux desktop applications published in Flathub. Recorder is his latest, a simple audio recording app.

Once launched, Recorder shows an empty window and a bunch of pretty obvious buttons in the toolbar. Hit the record button to start recording, and press again to stop. Once recording is complete, the auto-generated name can be edited to something more useful or friendly.

Clicking on the play button plays the highlighted recording back, simple. The recordings are saved on disk, and can be easily found by clicking the folder icon in the toolbar. Recordings can either be removed in the folder, or using the delete button on the toolbar.

This is another great, easy to use application from Alex. We can’t wait for the next one!


Pentobi 20.0 was published πŸŸ₯

Pentobi is a computer opponent for the board game Blokus. It has a strong Blokus engine with different playing levels. The supported game variants are Classic, Duo, Trigon, Junior, Nexos, Callisto and GembloQ.

Players can determine their strength by playing rated games against the computer and use a game analysis function. Games can be saved in Smart Game Format with comments and move variations.

Goat Attack

Goat Attack 0.4.5 was published 🐐

Goat Attack is a multiplayer 2D platformer pixel art shooter game. You can play it in a local network or over the Internet. Six gameplay modes are supported. Deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag, speed race, catch the coin and goat of the hill.

Launch the game, spin up a server on your local network or public Internet and get your Goat on! The game comes with sixteen maps from “Astrogoat” to “Goats In Space” and “I Have Goat To Kill You!”. Goat Attack supports controllers or keyboard, and the keys can be configured for optimal Goat melee.

The Linux build is available in Flathub, of course, but the Goat Attack site has builds for Windows and macOS, with the source code available on GitHub. The game has been around a while now, but only just got a Flathub upload. So maybe now is the ideal time to spin up a server and Go At-Attacking. Go Attacking. Goat Attacking. You know what we mean! 🐐

That’s all for now!
