We’re also thrilled to announce the release of a Linux version, in addition to our newly released Mac and Windows apps, all of which you can download from https://apps.wordpress.com/desktop/.
The dedicated apps are a great way to manage your sites, write and publish, and even customize your site and view stats. Use it for your sites on WordPress.com, or for your self-hosted WordPress sites using the Jetpack plugin.
We’re excited to make the source available, and we welcome contributions, feedback and reporting any issues. Give the app a try, no matter what platform you’re on!
