snap package

Suggestion: what about providing a snap package? This could perhaps even replace the .deb and .rpm packages.

Here's a yaml file to build one for the current release: https://gist.github.com/darealshinji/62 ... 2ef916947f

However I can't get the start menu entry to work right now.

Snap is better than Appimage?

For some, maybe. The main difference is that snap is a system-agnostic package manager so snap has to be installed.
