the wiki would need some update, zypper is not installed by default, it's better to use ssu and pkcon to do the steps mentioned.

@Kontio totally agree with you. In any case those instructions should work if pkcon install zypper was done earlier.

@Kontio I have updated the wiki with instructions for ssu and pkcon. Managed to install gpodder in that way.

From the gpodder.org: "The gPodder 4 QML UI is not at all complete yet, but basic subscribing, downloading and playback works already. Stay tuned!" so the final version is in the works. But I guess @thp would appreciate some feedback, testing and contributions from power users. Otherwise probably he wouldn't put up those instructions at wiki.

gPodder 4.0.0 (SailfishOS version) seems to only be partly working. Apparently there's some threading bug that causes the program to crash. Let's hope fixing it isn't too complicated! :-\

It is their website, so it is at least the right source. If this UI is stable enough, no idea. I am still waiting on @thp to put it into Jolla Store.

My personal judgment is: yes, it is safe, but your experience may vary.

At the moment WE ARE the early adopters, so it is OUR job to test the software before it gets into hands, that will not be able to cope with mishaps.
