News & Reviews
Sometimes there is a newsworthy item (submissions welcome!) or client release and details get posted on the blog: https://f-droid.org/news-and-reviews. In the past we had reviews of apps with screenshots and it would be great to have more; and who knows they might make their way into the client some day!
Find out exactly when apks are available or when descriptions change: https://f-droid.org/wiki/api.php?action=feedcontributions&user=Robot. The status of the most recent build for an app can be obtained by appending /lastbuild to the wiki url of the package. Builds happen a couple of times a day ; a new repo index is only published once all outstanding builds are finished.
If you have an account on GitLab you can watch the F-Droid repos, or subscribe to atom feeds for them. A feed including actions from all fdroid repositories is available at https://gitlab.com/fdroid.atom.
You can subscribe to new forum posts and threads via the following URLs:

OPML import to a feed reader
For importing into your favourite news reader, save the following text as feeds.opml and add/remove feeds your are interested in.
On Android we have de.shandschuh.sparserss, net.fred.feedex, de.danoeh.antennapod, org.ttrssreader (requires a tt-rss server to connect to) and com.newsblur (via newsblur.com). On the desktop you could use the Akregator for KDE, Liferea for Gnome or [http://newsbeuter.org newsbeuter] which is nice if you like working in a terminal.
