PSA: If you are using Nextcloud Deck, you should *not* update to the just published version 1.9.1 but wait for the next release 1.9.2.

v1.9.1 will break things:

Does anyone have recommendations for people knowing German tax stuff and ideally have some experience with free software project funding things?

@fsfeberlin @fsfe any idea on who to ask about this?

Our forum at forum.f-droid.org just got updated and had a very short downtime. All up again now.

@shine @TheFuzzStone search.f-droid.org will update only on a nightly basis currently 🙈

@jeybe The companies legal name is (for now) still New Vector Ltd.
And yes it's a new app.

For once it's live on F-Droid first, before the play store release! 🎉

(formerly ) is now published on F-Droid: f-droid.org/packages/im.vector

This is a new app replacing both Riot.im and RiotX, it's based on the RiotX codebase.

@guenther The release notes showing for 1.8 is intentional as that's the still recommended version.

I think the translations live here: hosted.weblate.org/projects/f-

You should be able to submit corrections there.

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.

@Coffee @Parnikkapore
Almost correct. F-Droid builds the LIBRE flavor implemented by saghul of the jitsi team which works without proprietary code and thus without trackers.

@Utgardloki not directly but it reduces maintenance cost for the code. You can read about some of the benefits here: f-droid.org/en/2019/09/11/yaml

server tools will remove the old .txt metadata file support in the next major release (2.0).

If you are a fdroid repository operator you should migrate to .yml metadata files.

You can do so right now by running:

`fdroid rewritemeta --to yml`

Does anyone happen to know where the source code of the Android sdkmanager tool lives? I kind of need to hack on it.
