A new version of the AM application manager for AppImage is available. AM is an application manager hat is inspired by AUR and serves as an AppImage manager, installer, and updater. It currently contains over 1800 AppImage packages and official standalone applications for GNU/Linux, which are derived from tar and zip archives.

"AM" 5.6.4

New option --force-latest, downgrade an alpha/beta/prerelease application from github, use the stable version and get updates only from "releases/latest".

Typically the installation scripts are directed to "releases" to allow downloading of the latest build available for GNU/Linux, if the developer has not uploaded one for the latest stable release.

USAGE (one app for time):

am --force-latest $PROGRAM


appman --force-latest $PROGRAM

This option searches for and replaces "releases" with "releases/latest" in the AM-updater script and launches the AM/AppMan command with the -u $PROGRAM option, so you can downgrade the app via update.

Furthermore, the AM-updater will always update only from "releases/latest"... hoping that the developer continues to develop for GNU/Linux or, in the case of AppImages, continues to build them, keeping the AppImage format alive, by supporting its existence (this is the true reason I whote "AM"/AppMan, afterall)..
