Ugh, people are just the worst... @k9mail released a new stable version after a (in android terms relatively long) while.
Now people are angry:
* that it took so long (and they weren't aware they could have been using the betas all along)
* That the interface changed (and it breaks *their* workflow!)
* and uhm, just generally angry if you read the forum threads... 😕
Anyway, here's the announcement: https://k9mail.app/2021/07/24/K-9-Mail-is-back
Further help funding the development: https://k9mail.app/2021/02/14/K-9-Mail-is-looking-for-funding
At this point most of the day to day work necessary to keep #FDroid up and running is contributed by volunteers.

Hey, #Fediverse, do you use (say, at least once per week) any Mozilla products?
Context: some people are claiming "nobody uses Mozilla's products anymore". I'd like to see if that's actually true.
#NGI Atlantic.eu is a likely grant to apply for, stimulating cross-atlantic EU/US collaboration.

Independent security audit performed on our infrastructure, we are now audited on both the infrastructure and the app!
Cure53s statement: “…as expected Cure53 were not able to discover any Personally Identifiable Information attached to Mullvads end-users.”
Perhaps one of our most important blog post’s ever. A long and important read about how the foundations of democracy, with inalienable rights and freedoms, has been replaced by “control and surveillance”. Or as we call it; (L)awful interception. https://mullvad.net/blog/2021/4/22/lawful-interception/

Oskar and Linus from our App team joined @bjoreman at Kodsnack for an episode where they talked about how we build an app without any telemetrics, internet as it is supposed to be and how seriously we take our No-logging of user activity policy.
And in the end Linus performs a perfect pitch of our tamper proofing nail polish. https://kodsnack.se/419/
Ads on, ads off – before you start swiping back and forth in the app, let’s dig deeper into how we’ve set up this DNS feature, how we define what DNS means and how you can contribute to our lists on GitHub.
Pros and cons: DNS blocking vs. ad-blocking plugin:
+ Blocks unwanted content on the entire system
+ No additional plugins
+ Works on systems where traditional ad-blocking isn’t available
- Not as effective in the browser
- Not as smart as browser plugins
Today is no ordinary.
Today is THE day to beta test our split tunneling feature on Windows!
Get it now, go for a spin (inside and outside the VPN tunnel), and let us know how it went!
We’re finally nsync with Windows, and will say bye bye bye to support for 7, 8 and 8.1 at the end of the year.
We’re shaking up our routine when it comes to blogging about the app and want you to know.
We’re pivoting away from a post for every new stable release to posts that focus on what’s truly newsworthy (did someone say split tunneling on Windows? soon…).
Fun fact – we’ve been at this for over 11 years! Before we lay this routine to rest, take one final look back with us at some of the more memorable release moments (there was a day when we offered only 2 exit countries)
Our onion address on the uncensored Tor network has changed, but save your tears!
Here’s the new address for mullvad.net:
