Awesome. Let's see how it goes. I seriously recommend you appear in IRC, though.

OK, just updated to 2.5beta3. I've:

* bundled ffmpeg into the flatpak for import/export operations
* tried making jack work with dbus only; still can't.
* gave it a shot to update to gnome-3.30's SDK; which uses BuildStream and stuff like this. Issues with Python3.7 there. This work is on a separate branch.
* moved to using sha512 hashes for files.

Wow, this is super! Thanks, abique!

Are there any limitations, or peculiarities to be aware of? I know this kind of thing can happen with Flatpaks, sometimes for the better.

You are welcome.
From my testing it is working well. It is sandboxed, so there might be some limitations like writing files outside of your home folder, but we'll discover it over time.

Well cool. I plan to install it later tonight and begin testing.

Btw, do you know if there's risk to existing user data by running the Flatpak version? I would suspect not, but as always, things might be more complicated than I'd imagine.

I'm a noob with Linux and Flatpack in particular - should I first uninstall the 'regular' Bitwig version?

They're isolated, you can have both installed.
Don't try to run both at the same time though, because weird things could happen with your user data. That is unless the Flatpak version stores user data somewhere else versus the normal version?

I'm gonna install it shortly and say for sure though. Dinner first.
