F-Droid release is on the way just waiting on them: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/ ... 7a3bdf7ec8

Someone on the dev team mentioned they had some build server issues I think?

Yeah that's right, but they were solved around Feb 16 acc. to an earlier post in this thread. So I thought I ask again 🙃
Thanks anyway!

We've done everything we need to do on our end for it to be ready. We have no real control over when F-Droid actually pushes a release so you would probably get a better answer from them.

Do you have a theory for the next update of Andor's Trail version 0.7.14?

We are not going to give that information away at this early point in planning and development of the next version.

Right. Partly we love to surprise you, and partly we don't know exactly and sometimes get surprised ourselves :D

F-Droid release is on the way just waiting on them: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/ ... 7a3bdf7ec8

Yeah, I should not have posted that optimistically - sorry! I'd been guessing that the new version would be picked up quickly after we got the notice that F-Droid's build issues were fixed (this thread).

The F-Droid build process is somewhat opaque. As I understand it, it works like this:
  1. An app developer pushes a release tag to their app source code repository.
  2. F-Droid's checkupdates bot runs an automated scan to find new release tags, and updates the app's F-Droid metadata file accordingly.
  3. F-Droid's build server reads updated metadata files and generates the unsigned packaged release.
  4. Built packages are taken to an offline computer to be signed by F-Droid's key.
  5. Signed packages are brought back online and deployed to F-Droid's public repository.
Usually (as with the last 5 releases of AT), the dev team here controls step 1, and then F-Droid crunches through steps 2-5 within 48 hours or so. However, in this case:
  1. Nut pushed the v0.7.13 tag for AT on February 7th.
  2. F-Droid's bot updated AT's metadata for v0.7.13 on February 15th.
  3. AT's v0.7.13 package has not yet been built.
We're not alone in this. For example, another game I play from F-Droid's repository (a word puzzle game called Lexica) tagged a new release on February 5th, but their build was only published on March 1st. F-Droid doesn't offer insight into how the build queue is ordered, so there's not much to do on our side but wait (as unsatisfying as that can feel sometimes :) ).
