    Hi everyone!

    After a lot of feedback around how we release our Linux based version of the Hub we have decided to distribute the Hub though RPM and Debian repositories going forward. This should help with a lot of the reported problems around AppImage desktop integration.

    We ask that if you want to use the Linux version of the Hub please read this documentation. It describes the process for downloading the Hub and keeping up to date with any new releases.

    For now, we are only releasing the beta.7 version of the Hub to be sure that we are not breaking any critical flows for you. Stay tuned for the full v3.0.0 release coming early next year.

    Hi,
    I guess it's not a bad thing but I'd like to keep using the appimage (I can live without the integration thingy :)); will you still maintain them?

    Can't we just switch to the beta version within the Hub now?

    Hi @APSchmidt and thanks for you question!

    Unfortunately no, appimages won't be supported anymore as they don't come with the OS integration we are looking for. Moving forward, installing and updating Hub (including beta) will be as explained in our documentation.

    Thank you!

    Starting from beta-7 and moving forward, switching channel won't be an option in app anymore. Instead you will have to target a different repository as explained under "Installing the beta versions of the Hub on Linux" in our documentation.

    There is only 2 files with names close to "Unity", but none of them worked as expected.
