Christian F.K. Schaller has written a detailed blog post about work going into Fedora 31 which should make the operating system more attractive to desktop users. Schaller outlines improvements to GNOME, getting Wayland and XWayland to work smoothly with NVIDIA's binary drivers, fingerprint reader support, and building more applications as Flatpak packages. In particular, Flatpaks may soon be able to use a common, Red Hat supported base. "Work on Flatpak in Fedora is continuing. Current focus is on improving the infrastructure for building Flatpaks from RPMS and automating what we can.This is pre-requisite work for eventually starting to ship some applications as Flatpaks by default and eventually shipping all applications as Flatpaks by default. We are also working on setting things up so that we can offer applications from flathub.io and quay.io out of the box and in accordance with Fedora rules for 3rd party software. We are also making progress on making a Red Hat UBI based runtime available. This means that as a 3rd party developer you can use that to build your applications on top of and be certain that it will be stay around and be supported by Red Hat for the lifetime of a given RHEL release, which means around 10 years."
