F-Droid will soon have stricter requirements for apps showing up in the "Latest" tab in the F-Droid app:

If you are an app developer consider adding good descriptions, screenshots and a "Whats's New" section for your app.

If you notice that your favourite app doesn't fulfill all these requirements consider notifying the app's developers or just help them with a merge request adding the missing info to the source repo.

At the end of last year, the #FSFE was in Leipzig at the #36C3. As in previous years, we were present with our own #assembly, lots of information material, talks and workshops. Read our report from Bonnie Mehring "about:freedom - about:fsfe"

We've started work on new project to improve our app submission and review process, with a focus on making it easier for contributors to make ethical decisions

F-Droid (our build of ) has been updated to v68.4.1 fixing a critical security vulnerability.

If you can not yet see the update, you might have to refresh the repository index first, as this was published only minutes ago.

We're going to roll out icons for our anti-features soon. Here's a preview, what do you think?

The next version of #bandcampDirect, my free bandcamp client for Android (available on :fdroid: @fdroidorg), will be rebranded to campfire. Also, in-app playback controls will be more stable.

Does anyone want to create a new icon for this app?

Just found a neat little game on #FDroid.

2050 (A game loosely based on 2048, but with circles instead of squares) -

One of my side-projects is an alternative #FDroid client resurrecting the classic UI from before the 1.0 release.

Here's the list of things still to be fixed before an initial release:

One of the missing pieces is a proper icon which should resemble a retro/lo-fi version of the F-Droid robot. Anyone up for giving this a go?
I'm not a designer, so if nobody steps up the icon will be replaced by programmer art before release :D.

I sneaked a tiny change into the next #FDroid app release (1.8). App-details will now also display the summary text.

While it's a tiny trivial change, I'm hoping it'll make the app way more usefull. Because often summaries are the only translated text we've got. Also search results sometimes only show the first few words of a summary. Now it's becoming easy to find closure. Last but not least this will make the app and webiste more consistent.
