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

news.f-droid.org/posts/2019-03

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.

The WiFi app has a different signature from the last events as we had to create a new repo. You'll need to uninstall the old version.

(Next time we'll give it a different package id if the signing key changes.)

Another helpful tip, as there's no c3nav app this time:

You can add a home screen shortcut of map.events.ccc.de
In Firefox/Fennec this works via the "+ sign in a house" icon in the top right corner.
