*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.

Show thread

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.

If you love podcasting, please join the discussions at and help us expand what is possible in podcasting :)

Podcasting 2.0 is making new features possible in podcast apps.

- Livestream notifications
- Bitcoin donations (boosts)
- Bitcoin superchats (boostagrams)
- Searchable transcripts

All of these features are now possible because of Podcasting 2.0.

@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:

UpdateCheckMode: Tags

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

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:

- Cross-app comments
- Transcripts
- Create and share podcast clips

All Podverse software is provided under a free and license.

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.

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

@adam @dave It was a challenge ironing out the F-Droid deploy process...but two F-Droid devs, Linsui and Licaon_Kter, have been an enormous help, and now the process is much more automated and simple for us.
