Yes, of course, this hasn't changed.

Note that I wouldn't consider it final, so I'd leave it as testing platform.
That said, you know better how your application works on flatpak than I do.

Thanks, I was not sure if I could do it.

Apart from that, I have two pain points mostly shared with other music players:

* missing audio codecs (coming from the build of the base flatpak runtime) ;

* the portal specification does not allow selection of a directory (not sure if the technology used for the files allow a directory hierarchy).

I should ask to flatpak upstream if they have solutions for that.
