NewsFlash lost support for feedly due to the API secret expiring. The new release of version 1.5.0 removes the feedly option from the flathub builds. But the code is still present and custom builds with developer secrets are possible. As an alternative to feedly NewsFlash 1.5.0 now offers support for Inoreader. We are still looking to find a maintainer for the Inoreader integration who dog-foods NewsFlash together with Inoreader.
