|Summary||0016525: new upstream microrelease flatpak 1.0.9|
|Description||There is a new upstream microrelease of Flatpak (1.0.9), which brings backported fixes and improvements - the main being allowing use of extra_data in runtimes (which is required by the openh264 extension).|
Installing the common dependency org.freedesktop.Platform.openh264/x86_64/19.08 from Flathub generates the following error:
Warning: Failed to install org.freedesktop.Platform.openh264/x86_64/19.08: runtime/org.freedesktop.Platform.openh264/x86_64/19.08 needs a later flatpak version (1.4.2;1.2.5;1.0.9;)
As noted by the error, bumping the Flatpak version from 1.0.6 to 1.0.9 would solve this issue. I can imagine it is an issue which will end up affecting many who wish to use Flatpaks on their CentOS system.
|Steps To Reproduce||flatpak install flathub org.freedesktop.Platform.openh264|
|Additional Information||An identical bug exists for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS over at their bugtracker here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/flatpak/+bug/1844666|

I met the same problem while I was trying to use flatpak-builder to develop a new application.
As the original reporter, I propose that this can be closed now that flatpak 1.0.9 has been available in the repositories for some time now.
