A libre build of the Swiss contact tracing application is now available on F-Droid: LibreCHovid! https://f-droid.org/packages/ch.corona.tracing
If you live in Switzerland, it is a better option than CCTG: in case of an infection, you can directly enter the Covidcode you can receive with your positive test result to warn others without needing to call the German TAN hotline.
Check in with #CCTG. Version 126.96.36.199 is now available through our repository as an automatic update!
The update contains not only check-in functionality – allowing you to create as well as check in to events and locations via QR codes –, but also reduces the APK size by more than 10 megabytes, fixes remaining visual bugs on Android Lollipop, and warns users on their home screen if Battery Optimizations are not correctly disabled.
We hope you enjoy this release, stay safe.

Changelog for today:
* remove some sort of feature
* make app less snappy when doing a specific thing
* include new complicated library
* supposedly this is supposed to be less maintenance effort in the end
There's also this NewPipe blog post: https://newpipe.net/blog/pinned/release/newpipe-0.21.0-released/
To our European friends: you can use CCTG outside of Germany! We’ve added an entry to our FAQ containing all the relevant info: https://codeberg.org/corona-contact-tracing-germany/cwa-android#can-i-use-cctg-outside-of-germany-what-if-i-don-t-live-there
It’s very short, and yet, here’s a summary of how you can use our app:
✅ Record exposures
✅ Be warned about risk contacts from participating countries
✅ Warn others (need to call TAN hotline)
✅ Contact journal (it’s an offline feature anyway)
❌ Access your test results
See the attached photo for a list of supported countries.
Es gibt nicht viele Benuzter sichtbare Änderungen (https://codeberg.org/corona-contact-tracing-germany/cwa-android/src/branch/main/CHANGELOG.md#1-15-1-0)
Aber uff.... das war schon wieder mehr als ein voller Tag Arbeit. 😴
But you can use it to listen to bandcamp’s weekly show (Radio / Bandcamp Weekly)!
Note: NewPipe doesn’t support displaying albums on artist’s profiles at the moment (just individual tracks) so you’ll have to find them via search :/
