It hasn't adhered to any timelines it set the last time around, I wouldn't hold my breath.

I don't see a new Linux download URL. Please re-flag this package if you see one.

I don't see a new Linux download. Feel free to re-flag this package with a URL with the updated Linux version.

Seems to be (unintentionally?) killed by upstream. For updating it tries to access the URL

"<!DOCTYPE html>\n<html>\n<head>\n <meta name=description content=Native"

Clearly, something is broken.

Just does this every time I run it

Not sure if package or upstream.

Although 1.0 RC1 for Windows and macOS is out, I don't see a Linux download. Feel free to re-flag this once it becomes available.

This app has a really sketchy authentication mechanism on linux, as far as anyone can tell it hijack's the user's Firefox session cookie. See Its closed source which makes the situation even worse. Anyone installing this software should do so with extreme caution.

Thanks very much. :)

@doctorcolossus Fixed by uploading the release somewhere else.

Upstream issue:

New user here. I'm getting a "404 Not Found" error. There appears to be no under the repository's releases: The only assets listed are: Volt.dmg,, Source code (zip), Source code (tar.gz)

Looks like it only supports Slack. I guess that's just false advertising from the author. I'll remove it from the description, sorry.

I am looking for functioning twitter app and came across Volt. How do I setup Volt use twitter? When I launched for the first time it asked for Slack workspace in a webpage and an empty window opened up. Am I missing something?

on manjaro xfce, chose to install either glfw-x11 or glfw-wayland, errors occurred when try to start vlot from terminal. for x11: volt: /build/glfw/src/glfw-3.2.1/src/window.c:774: glfwSetWindowUserPointer: Assertion `window != NULL' failed.

for wayland, error message is similar.

Manually installing either glfw-x11-git or glfw-wayland-git, and start, it gives: exiting from os.exit(): Failed to initialize glad OpenGL context

edit: I also found that: quote: "After some research it seems that this happens because the application requires OpenGL 3.2.1 but my machine has version 2.1. Is there a workaround to this or can the developer downgrade the OpenGL requirement?"

Chose to install glfw-x11. Error below occurred.

(1/1) checking for file conflicts   
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
glfw-x11: /usr/lib64 exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
Error installing repo packages

I was able to bypass this by manually installing glfw-x11-git
