Today, we’re taking the censorship-resistance of Umbrel to a whole new level. Introducing Umbrel 0.5.2 with Community App Stores. Now anyone can publish an app store for Umbrel, without submitting apps to our official app store.
Here are the docs on how to create your own community app store.
And here’s a demo of community app stores in action:
Our goal with the Community App Stores is to ensure that we don’t retain an exclusive control over what apps you can or cannot install on your Umbrel. It also helps developers distribute their beta apps for testing before they’re ready for our official app store.
Also new in Umbrel 0.5.2 — enable/disable Tor remote access from settings. There’a also a new super-fast search in the app store. Yep, we were tired of doing Cmd/Ctrl+F on the app store too.
This release also contains tonnes of bugfixes and performance improvements. The full changelog is on our GitHub.
