OpenStore Xenial Support - Phase 3

Phase 3 of Xenial support in the OpenStore is now complete! This is the last phase of Xenial support and it’s the automatic update of all apps that already support Xenial without recompiling. QML only apps, HTML apps, and webapps can all be run on Xenial without the need for a recompile or reupload. So to ease the transition for users and developers I’ve created a script to automatically make those apps available for Xenial. The update does not change the click package or update the manifest/framework at all, it merely marks it as having Xenial support. If you are running Xenial you should be able to get many of your favorite apps from the OpenStore.

If you notice any issues or can’t get these apps to install, let us know on Telegram or GitHub.
