With Ariane hopefully disappearing from F-Droid soon someone requested a version check on startup so they don't have to check oppen.digital manually. It's in the latest build: https://oppen.digital/software/oppensmolnet/ariane/download.gmi From 4.1.69 Beta onwards you should get a message if a new version is available. Only available if side-loaded, not from a Google Play install, and there's a setting in prefs to turn the automatic check off.
@devinprater I don't want to dump on them because they work hard and are understaffed, but I've always found it a very painful experience getting things set up. I've moved the repo for Ariane and I'd just be happier without it on there (the version they have is really old and I'm getting regular bug reports about it). There's lots of things with how they do things I think is wrong but it's still a massive achievement.
