There's a new F-Droid client release candidate (v1.9). If you want to test this, you can update to it manually from the F-Droid client. (Browse to the app, expand the version list and install the 1.9 version, make sure your repository index is up-to-date beforehand)
Please report any issue you find.
You'll find the Changelog here: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/-/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#19-2020-06-25
@fdroidorg it installed fine, however when i return to the F-Droid app's page inside F-Droid, it still shows the release notes for 1.8 (is that by design?) Also, since my phone is set to German, these release notes are shown in what appears to be a terrible automated translation, english would be more helpful.
@guenther The release notes showing for 1.8 is intentional as that's the still recommended version.
I think the translations live here: https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/f-droid/f-droid-metadata/
You should be able to submit corrections there.
The page with new apps and updates is empty on Android 5. "Keine kürzlich aktualisierten Apps gefunden Heute aktualisiert "
@wend Is categories also empty? It sounds like you might be hitting this bug: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/-/issues/1626
No. Categories looks fine. Only the news page is empty.
@fdroidorg only issue I've got is that it takes less then a minute to update the repos, as opposed to ~2¹ minutes it took before.
1) No actually measurements, just "felt like 2 minutes".
"10/10 would recommend"
@fdroidorg 1.9 has me completely refused: what happened to the "latest" tab? It suddenly loads all icons pronto. Only a few ones are missed. Cannot remember this working before Thanks!
Now I'm curious if auto-updates start working again 🤞
@fdroidorg Great work! The icons indeed load much faster and the app in general seems to be more responsive.
