Fdroid is known to have a week or so lag between a new release of an open source app and the time it is available for users. Personally, given that f-droid is a volunteer driven organization, I accept that extra risk.
I understand the problem if your threat model makes this security risk unacceptable, however it is not fair to blame f-droid contributors if they don’t have the resources to identify, test and deploy near instant updates.
Thank you very much for the replies; I apologise if anything in my posts had indicated any sort of hostility!.. Not my intention, at all (!), I get what and how is the whole system.
Speaking of which, may I also mention how STRANGE F-Droid gets - with certain things disabled on the phone… This is what it looks like, it’ll only sometimes load (some) images and apparently randomly to make it more confusing:
Definitely not mobile data… It’s crazy, had to set “Data limit” to 0 B as not to have it auto-activate under certain conditions. No big deal I guess, haven’t been able to figure out what’s blocking and firewalling what.
The real issue is that F-Droid Fennec is lagging behind again, two minor builds: 68.0.1 and 68.0.2
What are we to do, if anybody knows of plans to keep the build cycle up with releases?
