I’m waiting eagerly for a long time now for a couple od really painful k9 bugs to get fixed.
Some of the issues are closed now with remarks like “test in 5.7 and reopen if still exists”. As I’m on 5.600, F-Droid version, and also checked that since 2018 there have been no change in Google Play Store also, my question is about the planned roadmap for k9.
I’ve tried to install a new 5.7.x apk from github, but fails to update my 5.6.00 installation. Seems to be too many changes in between. Guess I have to wipe, new install, import settings and re-sync all email accounts. Which will probably take days, thousands of mails
What’s the idea behind waiting so long for an new main release?
Thanks to all who are contributing to k9,
This happens because F-Droid and GitHub use different signing keys. You have to install all updates from F-Droid. You can get the beta versions on F-Droid, too.
At least the following list of issues needs to be fixed before making the new version public: https://github.com/k9mail/k-9/milestone/24 The problem is that only very few people contribute to K-9, so the development is slow. In fact, in the last month, only one single person (the lead developer cketti) contributed 53 changes.
