I admit to not testing it thoroughly, but the flatpak seems to work well, and in conjunction with the gnome-software plugin, you'll get automatic updates. The only downside I've seen is that it doesn't comply with the desktop theme. But on Ubuntu/GNOME, it's much better than the snap package which is atrociously ugly.
On OpenSUSE Tumbleweed KDE, the desktop theme is applied, so I guess it's not a FreeCAD issue. But the current revision number is 14555, which is already half a year old and 0.18_pre. I mean I've been working with the 0.18 preview without major issues since it was available, but in general it should be preferred to stick to the releases.
BTW, just realized that 18.1 is actually available in the OpenSUSE default repo. Ubuntu on the other hand still offers only 0.16.
The whole release status seems to be a bit of a mess currently.
And after reading more on the forums, it looks like AppImages might not return at all.
