I'm linking to a similar forum post and the relevant issue on the Flathub manifest's GitHub repository.

There's been 350,000 unique downloads over 4 years, including updates from one version to the next. Global downloads isn't an installed user base. There won't be an exact figure due to the way the backend and upgrades work, but it'd be closer to 15,000 installed users.

Which isn't to say this doesn't need sorting, it's still 15,000 installed users. But the Flatpak being at 350k would make it more popular than the Windows version :wink:


You can see an estimate of installed users by correlating updates to downloads like this

It's worth noting that the flatpak is an unofficial alterntive distribution rather than coming from the main Joplin project:

However... it's also the case that flathub is proactive in monitoring for new releases and there are currently a bunch of automatic pull requests to deliver the update (as I post there there are five automatic PRs tracking the point releases):

At present Joplin 3.10 is available from the beta channel. I used the following commands to get it:

flatpak --user remote-add --if-not-exists flathub-beta https://flathub.org/beta-repo/flathub-beta.flatpakrepo
flatpak --user install flathub-beta net.cozic.joplin_desktop
flatpak --user make-current net.cozic.joplin_desktop beta

Thank You very much for your response, it's appreciated.

The v3 flatpaks have now been promoted to the production stream. So, just for completeness, to switch back to the production stream simply uninstall the beta version:

flatpak --user uninstall flathub-beta net.cozic.joplin_desktop
# Optional, and only if you are not using the beta stream for anything else...
flatpak --user remote-delete flathub-beta
