Beta testing of AndStatus #456
Please note that the most convenient way for Beta testing is to opt in as a Tester at Google Play: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/org.andstatus.app
If you don't use Google Play, for Beta testing I'm attaching the latest Beta release of AndStatus to this post.
AndStatus has Backup/Restore feature, so you can Backup your current configuration and messages before uninstall and restore them after installation of the new version. Please note that attachments and avatars will not be backed up and restored, but AndStatus will re-download them on demand (e.g. if you scroll to an old post) of course.
Before installation of the below linked AndStatus package you have to unzip it first. This is .apk file that should be installed. I use "Total Commander" for unzipping.
2018-06-18 v.40.02 Release. Android 7.0+ only. "Note Editor UI improvements"
See the Change log: http://andstatus.org/changelog.html
2017-08-13 v.35.06 Release. Android 4.4+. AndStatus-35.06-release.zip
changed the title from
Beta testing for people, who don't use Google Play
Beta testing of AndStatus for Google Play users and for people, who don't use Google Play

Did you see the "Enable unstable builds" toggle in Settings? That's what you want. ;)
Basically you make a new tag here
There isn't any specific info about this, except a bit here (and inspiration from other apps metadata).
Anyone can, so many apps, not that many devs... Eg. my merge request
Your app is on "auto-update" so if you publish a release tag, it will be picked out. But if you want to add some text (like I did) or add an unstable version you need to intervene.
Thank you for information. I will definitely use this way to update Description of AndStatus application in F-droid. But manipulation with beta versions is inconvenient.
No really a commit, afaik, a new tag would do it.
Try to add your voice here too: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroid-website/issues/71
@licaon-kter In order to foster F-Droid support of Beta releases, I posted my vision of the target process to the relevant F-Droid's change ticket, see: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidserver/issues/161#note_37431690
