It currently contains over 1800 AppImage packages and official standalone applications for GNU/Linux, which are derived from tar and zip archives.



"AM" 6.0.4

Various little improvements:

  • option "--rollback"
    • starting it, the first thing it will check is whether an app already has an AM-rollback script;
    • adapted the steps for use with the new AM-updaters of the new scripts available from  v6.0.3.
  • option "-i" or "install"
    • removed a redundancy in the code;
    • from now, the installation of ffwa-* scripts (for Firefox profiles) will work with at least one of "firefox" references installed and available in $PATH i.e. firefox, firefox-esr/dev/nightly/appimage... etcetera. All depends on what you have installed, but must contain "firefox" in the name (in alphabetical order, "firefox" installed system-wide will be preferred).
  • option "-a" or "about"
    • removed multiple black lines from messages;
    • fix error messages from other options by removing what the option creates after the use.
  • option "-t" or "template"
    • archives, automatically uses an extraction method based on the format. Manually specify only the location of extracted items in ./tmp.
  • option "-u" or "update"
    • users who are new to the "apikey" option but have already installed apps from github will have the patch in supported AM-updaters.
  • improved some installation scripts, with particular attention to WINE;
  • from now it is also available a  CONTRIBUTING.md;
  • the database has well exceeded the threshold of 1900 installation scripts for the x86_64 architecture.
