Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

🎂 It's been one year since switching.social posted its #Introductions, so cake for everyone! 🍰 🍰 🍰 :blobcheer: 🎉

Wow. On the one hand it seems like just yesterday, but on the other it feels like a *lot* has happened since then.

Thank you for all the suggestions and feedback, and thank you to those who make #Alternatives that give us back our privacy. You are all heroes 👍

@fdroidorg now packages Trime, an IME (input method engine) used to type Chinese.

In spite of being a pretty nifty tool, it does not work out of the box yet. I opened a topic on F-Droid forum to provide basic guidance and share my experience. Do not hesitate to share yours too: forum.f-droid.org/t/typing-chi

Apparently the armv7 build of Fennec failed the first time around. It succeeded now and will be pushed with the next index update.

Attention #Fennec #FDroid / #Firefox users: The critical 66.0.4 update is now available via F-Droid to fix the broken add-on support because of an expired certificate. That was incredibly fast for F-Droid standards! Don't forget to revert any unofficial fixes. f-droid.org/app/org.mozilla.fe

Meanwhile #Ubuntu users are still waiting for the latest Firefox update to be deployed. 🙄 #ArmagAddon #Android #Mozilla

I finally have a solution for opening (libre/MS) office documents on my Phone using only free software!

With Nextcloud, Collabora Online and the Nextcloud Android app.

Editing should work too but is a bit buggy on my Phone still.

If you are using -android you should update to version 0.8.28a as this is a critical security update.

If you are a user of the matrix.org homeserver and have received an alert message stating that you should update to a version 0.8.99 from google play you can safely ignore that. This message was only targeted at google play users but accidentally sent to some -Droid users as well.

search.f-droid.org should hopefully be noticeably more performant now.

There's still more improvements to be made but it should be quite usable again for now.
