Fennec update takes a long time after Mozilla release

Please make Fennec F droid cycle update more often like Iceraven browser.Currently Fennec F droid still stuck in 116.3.0

I update it the same day as Mozilla, often within a few hours.

But it takes time for the F-Droid.org repo to actually compile and eventually publish it.

I track release dates here: https://divestos.org/misc/ffa-dates.txt
You can see metadata updates here: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/merge_requests?scope=all&state=merged&search=fennec+f-droid
Pending releases here: build - F-Droid Monitor

It should also be noted that Iceraven is not compiled from source and contains proprietary Google libraries: `com.google.android.gms:play-services-fido` ends up in the build and pulls in other parts of the Google Play Services client library · Issue #463 · fork-maintainers/iceraven-browser · GitHub


I just want to thank @SkewedZeppelin for his work mantaining this application.

It usually takes about a week or so to catch the current Firefox version but we can wait :+1:


We have to thank @relan too! :heart:


Funny that latest ones were merged mere minutes AFTER the cycle started :person_shrugging: :slight_smile:

Yep, but 117.1.0 was merged a week ago and still pending of being published here :thinking:

Current cycle is at last step…
