As yesterday's release introduced two critical bugs, we are here with a new release today, v0.2.21.212158.

Download is available as usual via microg.org/download.html. If you have problems upgrading from v0.2.20.212158, please read the release notes at github.com/microg/GmsCore/rele

Some users reported problems with the new release when using a system that has installed on /system partition (including problems up- or downgrading after installing v0.2.20) or when using apps that make use of a Google account.

There likely will be a follow-up release today or tomorrow to fix those issues.

Missing exposure warnings are caused by a change in the Exposure Notification Bluetooth protocol specification that was not yet published by Google or Apple.

Only some devices and OS versions are sending encrypted metadata that cannot be correctly interpreted by older versions of microG. microG can still use data recorded with older versions, but warnings caused by such devices will only be displayed with 0.2.14 or later.

Why are people making up such things?

#bountysource changed their ToS such that bounties that have been posted more than 2 years ago will be seized by them (probably to fund the blockchain company that bought bountysource a while back). The change will become active July 1. If you have any bounties on bountysource posted before June 30, 2018 you can ask to redeploy your bounty on a new issue once.

@microg will no longer advertise the use of bountysource for issue bounties. Please refrain from posting new bounties there.
