Installing flox via nix flake still shows 0.3.5-r660


I’m trying to give flox a shot. I have a nix install already in place so I was working through the nix install method. It looks like this method is still installing an older version of flox. Is 0.9.0 going to be available through this method?

Thanks in advance!

 nix run --impure 'github:flox/floxpkgs#flox.fromCatalog' -- --version
Version: 0.3.5-r660

We missed some doc updates - will fix! thanks for sharing! Give the following a try:

Install Flox to a nix profile:

nix profile install \
      --experimental-features "nix-command flakes" \
      --accept-flake-config \

Install Flox to the system-wide default profile as root:

sudo -H nix profile install \
      --profile /nix/var/nix/profiles/default \
      --experimental-features "nix-command flakes" \
      --accept-flake-config \


It looks like the flake.lock is pointing to an older version of flox-latest. The flake is building a version of 0.3.6. Checking out the repo, removing the flake.lock and letting nix generate a new flake.lock builds 0.9.0 for me.

I submitted an issue via Github.
