@ConnyDuck @fdroidorg Wow that's great news! No need for the privileged extension then anymore I guess.

I'm willing to bet this is to reduce the drive into antitrust investigations because "look we do stuff for alternative stores!". But I'll take it, good news regardless of the reasons.

@artectrex @fdroidorg The privileged extension still makes sense for the cases were it would prompt the user anyway. Its mostly a huge improvement for users on non-rooted devices

@ConnyDuck @fdroidorg Yeah I hadn't looked at the quite list of requirements yet, lots of apps on F-Droid won't be able to use it (although it sure will give more of an incentive to update the target API)
