New TWIF Submission Thread

We’d like to have TWIF up and running again. It is important as a means of getting the community and the world up to speed on what is happening in the world of F-Droid.

If you’d like for something to appear on TWIF, please suggest it here.

The rules are simple, please post your updates on this thread before Thursday 0000 UTC every week.
If the deadline is missed, it’ll either be in next week’s TWIF, or possibly not at all if the information is already outdated by then.

If I :heart: your submission, I’ve seen it and added it to my notes. There’s no guarantee it’ll make the final cut, though.


Is there going to be an RSS Feed?

There’s an RSS feed for News | F-Droid - Free and Open Source Android App Repository right? Because posts end up there :wink:


Thank you.
I wasn’t aware that the post were going to end up in the regular news. To me it sounded more like “its own thing”

For newly added apps, we need a full description and for downgraded ones, we need a reason

For example Standard Notes was downgraded from 3.171.12 to 3.167.25

We can’t know why the downgrade happened. If the develooer can post the reason on this thread it can always be included in the TWIF

We can research :slight_smile:

Scroll down to references @licaon-kter mentioned in issue #3069 (closed) · Sep 5, 2023, 9:11 AM so we go to: Standard Notes License Is Incorrect (#3069) · Issues · F-Droid / Data · GitLab

and now we know.

At the same time… the Note on top is pretty short and on point: NOTE: Version 3.167.25 is the last one to be free or open-source.”


Thanks for this. \o/ . I’ll check on how to incorporate this on the TWIF for all apps.
Also, @danialbehzadi Thanks for raising the concern that details should be for downgrades and upgrades. I think it is a great idea. :slight_smile:
