The FOSS Mastodon/Friendica/PixelFed/Pleroma app Fedilab and the FOSS PeerTube app TubeLab now have a new combined official account. You can follow them both at:
(This also includes news about other apps by the same author such as UntrackMe and OpenMultiMaps.)
Their official website is at https://fedilab.app
The apps are available from @fdroidorg and Google Play
F-Droid Server (_fdroidserver_) v2.0 will be released in two weeks! We would like to include as many languages as possible. These are the tools used for building apps and working with app repositories.
The "polished" version of our recording for the #fdroid app review process is now online:
It corrects some of the issues (audio & video are in sync now, missing drop-downs have been edited in, some "unnecessary pieces" have been edited out). The previous "raw uncut recording" will probably be removed soon, please use this new one instead.
Thanks again to all who participated! And a happy new year with happy new review(er)s
For those who missed it, and those who want to repeat it: the recording of our first training session / talk on "F-Droid App Review" is online now
I've created a new channel for it, as hopefully more are to come (and hopefully also in better quality than this "quick cut", I'm out of training in video editing):
Room URL for our "F-Fdroid Training Session" on "New App Reviews" will be: https://webconference.uibk.ac.at/b/wei-azu-ik3-aob
Start at 6:30pm CET (i.e. in about 45min from now). Looking forward to meet you there!
Do NOT install #NewPipe through the Samsumg Galaxy Store!
A copy of #newpipe is currently distributed through the Samsung Galaxy Store by a third party. The package id of that version is identical to the officiail one (org.schabi.newpipe), but the signing keys differ.
Surprisingly, users running an outdated version recieve a notification to update their installed version with the one uploaded in the Galaxy Store.
Vote now and make F-Droid a high priority for FSF - your feedback is needed by January 8th:
Got tired of complaining about @fdroidorg being "permanently understaffed" – and when asked on how you can help, having nothing to show but vague hints.
So I put something together, based on what I do daily. It's still very raw, and will have to be "fine-tuned" over the next days/weeks. Your feedback is welcome to make this something useful:

Sooo how is #Tusky 13 going?
Asking because I am in the process of preparing 13.1 and I don't want to do a 13.2
#microG #GmsCore v0.2.15.204713 in the Exposure Notification framework allows exporting collected IDs for analysis with third party apps (as share send intent). The next Warn-App-Companion then should support it for Corona Contact Tracing German.
#microG Services Core v0.2.15.204713 is here. 🎉
- Adds support for Vision Barcode API (used for QR code scanning in multiple apps)
- All kinds of improvements and bug fixes for Exposure Notification API.
- And of course, numerous bugs fixed.
Detailed changelog: https://github.com/microg/GmsCore/releases/tag/v0.2.15.204713
Thanks to #FreeSoftware developers, the German #CoronaWarnApp for tracing #COVID19 risk contacts is available on @fdroidorg without any Google dependencies. This not only fosters software freedom, but also sets the ground for innovative features.
Corona Contact Tracing Germany now on F-Droid 🚀
No dependency to Google, no microg app required. Pure open source, built reproducibly.
(This time posting the correct URL 🙂)
The list of free Android projects to translate on https://weblate.bubu1.eu is growing ❤️.
Corona Warn App in Kürze bei @fdroidorg verfügbar:
"Der Entwickler Marvin Wißfeld hat die Client-Bibliotheken für die Corona Warn App nachgebaut. Damit funktioniert die App unter Android ohne Google-Services."
"[Marvin hat] in wenigen Wochen im Alleingang das geschafft, was den Großunternehmen SAP und DTAG trotz staatlicher Bezuschussung scheinbar nicht gelungen ist […]"
Eigentlich sollte er von dem Zuschuss seinen Anteil bekommen!!!
