German Version:
Die wurde heute veröffentlich. DIe app kann es nicht bei F-Droid geben, da die Kernfunktionalität in den Google Play Services implementiert ist und proprietäre Bibliotheken in der App benötigt.
Außerdem erlaubt Google die Benutzung der Contact Tracing api nur speziell freigeschalteten Apps, die über den Play Store installiert worden sind.

The German Corona Warn App went live today. F-Droid cannot distribute the app for multiple reasons:

1) The core bluetooth contact tracing functionality is only implemented in Google play services and requires proprietary client libs to be included in the app.
2) The google api mentioned above is only available for use by apps which are whitelisted by google and distributed through the play store.

@pfm In principle yes, there's a catch though unfortunately. Payment processing fees are pretty steep for small transactions, so pooling them into one bigger, less frequent transaction might make sense as well.

@Liberapay works around this by transactions being made upfront in a bigger chunk but then attributed to x€ per week; and reminding you to renew when the money is "used up".

One more thing about donations:

Please consider making a recurrent contribution instead of a one-off one. This would help us greatly to continue working on F-Droid more consistently in the future.

We are currently at a point where the donations can *almost* pay for part-time development instead of being just able to pay for a coffee. Donations being recurrent instead of one-time help make that a lot more sustainable. :-).

An anonymous contributor just donated $370 to us via opencollective! 🎉 Thanks, whoever that was 🙂 .

I'm currently working on a new version of the F-Droid Privileged Extension which will work on unrooted phones using Androids Device Owner mode. Requires adb though.

There'll probably also be a seperate version which uses a root install mode instead of requiring install as a system app.

Short survey:
Is the app downgrade option in F-Droid working for you (if you tried to use it recently)? Please include on which Android version/custom ROM you are.

v1.1.7 was released to have a stable version that works with the main repo (e.g. fixes the "litecoin validation" error message).

It also fixes nightly --archive-older flag.
