*This is just our interpretation of what "Podcasting 2.0" is. If someone asks us, we try to explain it as non-technically as we can, and focus on what it delivers to podcasters and listeners.
Podcasting 2.0 is a collaboration between podcasters, listeners, and app developers to design new features in public and make them available to every podcast app.
The podcaster just needs to add Podcasting 2.0 tags to their RSS feed, and then any app can deliver those new features.

@fdroidorg some kind people in the F-Droid IRC answered this for me.
Turns out we needed to add a regex to the end of this line:
So that it ignores semvers with -beta.1 and -qa.1 at the end:
UpdateCheckMode: Tags ^[0-9.]+$
F-Droid has been deploying our prod/beta/qa tags randomly for the past few months and I didn't even know 🤦♂️
I submitted a fixed release to F-Droid, but it might take a week or longer for it to appear in the F-Droid store.
Disaster...Podverse for F-Droid is completely broken in version 4.3.1 for all users 😫
Somehow our QA version of Podverse 4.3.1-qa.1 got released. It uses test environment data, so the app will be completely broken for all users.
It doesn't make sense to me though because the autoupdate to F-Droid clearly is for 4.3.1 not 4.3.1-qa.1 https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/commit/5b2388af1cc7b9744cba2d10ee007c66e0adafb9
I checked out our 4.3.1 tag and confirmed 4.3.1-qa.1 is not in it. What happened?
Any @fdroidorg contributors out there who could assist?
Updated the Podverse feature list! Some notable features:
- Sync your subscriptions, queue, and history across all your devices
- Video playback
- Podcasting 2.0 chapters
- Cross-app comments
- Create and share podcast clips
I didn’t know you could share links to chapters in @podverse. This makes sharing some of the end of show mixes from NO Agenda 1440 super easy.
IT'S HERE! Podcast Generator 3.2 has landed!
And now I can start working on the next set of features for version 3.3.
NEW features added to the Podverse chat server:
- workflow diagrams
- like/dislike buttons
- browser notifications

I've just released Converse 9.1.0.
Converse is an #XMPP web-client that runs in the browser or Electron.
Notable improvements include OMEMO (E2EE) improvements and a new dark theme.
Lots of other bug fixes also included. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
I love it when apps actually give you details of what has been updated instead of “bug fixes & improvements…”, etc. @podverse
