Downloaded, thanks!

Can this be pushed to F-Droid too? I had a look at the process and signed up but one of the pre-requisites is:
"The original app author has been notified (and does not oppose the inclusion)."

After reporting it to Github: #4502, Vitalii answered: thanks for the report. I missed this while building a release. This is just a text message leftover. I'll fix that before next release.

Minor niggle. I have unchecked the need to have the screen blank to let computing start yet it still asks me in hints to blank screen to allow computing when it is crunching fine while I am doing other things on the phone.

I installed the new Android client version 18 on two of my phones. They work fine but progress on WUprop is no longer recorded. The others with the previous version get logged properly. Could there be some compatibility issue?

If you do not have a need for RPC try disabling it on your phones. There have been some WUprop forum postings.
