F-droid STILL reporting incorrect latest version

This has been a constant issue since you people took over from the original maintainer. f-droid worked perfectly but this is always the case at every level, new totally incompetant upstarts always insist they know better. They have to change everything and then fuck the whole thing up. Now it is nothing but unreliable. I check for updates to my apps and it says Privacy Browser last updated 7 months ago version 3.2. So I check the developer site, he has version 3.3. So I download from his site and inform him f-droid is out of date. He says f-droid had latest version since january and it probably has but that does not take into account the current maintainers are total wankers that fucked this all up. Even the search is fucked up. Type Privacy and expect any app named privacy to be far down the list.

The app and the website both show 3.3 as the latest version of Privacy Browser.

Maybe something else is the problem. Have you tried rebooting/updating your phone, updating F-Droid, etc.?

As far as I know, search results in the app are shown in alphabetical order. Perhaps, there should be an option in there to also sort the results according to relevance. That would be a nice feature request.

My Stoic Reading app isn’t updating either, something is wrong on f-droids side. The build metadata is up to date but the APK isn’t being generated

In the case of Stoic Reading app the build fails, see here. The reason is that the F-Droid build server does not know about Build Tools revision 29.0.3. I had the same problem with my app and I downgraded my gradle file to use revision 29.0.2. I opened an issue on gitlab.
Update: Should be fixed in the next build.

Thanks for the tip, I suspected it was something like that, I went updating a bunch of stuff in the app after Android Studio told me about AndroidX including updating the Build Tools.

Is there any progress on this, my app still hasn’t updated. I’m going to downgrade Build Tools too

The issue was fixed, but it needs to be deployed. We have to wait until Ciaran does this.
