    F-Droid probably won’t accept any builds with adware/tracking in them, so probably we’ll just stay on an old version until a fork or alternative comes along. There’s also a toggle on my preferred F-Droid manager app (droid-ify) to ignore new versions

      If it’s open source F-Droid will permit it but warns you of anti-features, at least on first install. I’m not expecting an update now but if they do I can see if F-Droid warns me about the spyware and adverts.

        Well, the F-Droid team may in theory permit it, but it’s also the F-Droid team that has to actively build and distribute the new version. If they don’t feel like distributing a newer version, they can absolutely do that.
