God, this new phone is making me appreciate how awful proprietary software is in comparison to open source. Escaping from the built-in apps to f-droid was such a relief.

I really need to work on getting myself a good open source phone. :/

My Updater now also can fetch APKs from GitLab tags.
Description on the GitLab repo for my repo (oops) updated accordingly: https://gitlab.com/IzzyOnDroid/repo (file your requests in its issue tracker, please).
Apologies again for the delay. Ironically, an error slipped through in our rush to get it out the door in time.
