Heads up to all #Riot users: with the recent attack on @matrix' infrastructure, it's possible that Riot's Google Play version got compromised. This doesn't affect Riot's F-Droid version. Just as Riot started to do now, F-Droid has always signed all its apps on an inaccessible, offline machine. For more information, see https://riot.im/reinstall
To avoid maintenance overhead, however, it's likely to happen that F-Droid users must also change the app in near future. Still, there's no need to act now.
As far as the last part, the community actually fractured a while back over (apparently) fundamental disagreement about how development priorities should be set, and potential mismanagement of funds by NV (or some such thing). The fork (The Grid) still aims to retain some compatibility afaik, but who's a "collaborator" and who's a "competitor" got a lot more muddied.
