Bug fixes:

* When splitting an upgrade into two steps (download without installing,
  and then upgrade without allowing further downloads) like GNOME Software
  does, if an app is marked EOL and superseded by a replacement, don't
  remove the superseded app in the first step, which would result in the
  replacement incorrectly not being installed (#5172)
* Fix a crash when --socket=gpg-agent is used (#5095)
* Fix a crash when listing apps if one of them is broken or misconfigured
* If an app has invalid syntax in its overrides or metadata, mention
  the filename in the error message (#5293)
* Unset $GDK_BACKEND for apps, ensuring GTK apps with
  --socket=fallback-x11 can work (#5303)
* Never try to export a parent of reserved directories as a --filesystem,
  for example /run, which would prevent the app from starting (#5205, #5207)
* Never try to export a --filesystem below /run/flatpak or /run/host,
  which could similarly prevent the app from starting
* The above change also fixes apps not starting if a --filesystem is a
  symlink to the root directory (#1357)
* Show a warning when the --filesystem exists but cannot be shared with
  the sandbox (#1357, #5035, #5205, #5207)
