Re: On 3.5.8

Just out of curiosity, I've decided to compare Vienna's retrieval speed with Mac-only (commercial) News Explorer: https://betamagic.nl/products/newsexplorer.html First run of the day: 254 articles retrieved in 33 seconds, Yes, you read that right: thirty-three secs. And macOS Notifications works per...

On 3.5.8

These are preliminary findings. A few days ago Vienna alerted me to a new version, 3.5.8, that promised (again, I might add) to have fixed a perplexing issue I've reported with 2 previous releases. I'm talking about the incorrect (and always changing) status messages I've noticed in the bottom on th...

3.5.7 is slooooow

I'm running 3.5.7 :1815bc54: (7202) on macOS 10.13.6 I installed 3.5.7 a few weeks ago and my distinct impression is how slow a complete refresh cycle has become compared with older Vienna releases. Just to confirm my suspicions I've just timed the full refresh cycle for 312 items on a cold app star...

Re: 3.5.0 thru 3.5.7 - persistent incorrect status bar message

Yesterday afternoon Vienna alerted me to a new version 3.5.7 that announced in its release notes Fix inaccurate information about number of unread articles I allowed the update to proceed. So far, so good. Running an hourly refresh rate I noticed that after every one the status bar message at the bo...

Re: 3.5.0 thru 3.5.6 - persistent incorrect status bar message

Still nothing on this? No hack to rest the subscription queue counter? No hack to make Vienna accurately inform me via macOS Notifications on the number of retrieved articles? Just now said macOS Notification told me Vienna had retrieved '23 new articles'. But Vienna wasn't done yet. When the retrie...

Re: 3.5.0 thru 3.5.6 - persistent incorrect status bar message

Just another status report fro this ongoing issue. As stated in my post above I didn't expect this to find on my Mac after I did a clean install of macOS and a fresh install of Vienna 3.5.5 a few weeks ago. Mind you: the only thing I saved from my previous setup was the exported OPML file. Just now ...

Apologies for my late reply. Yes, moving back to 3.5.0 removed the annoyance and I've loaded the exact same .opml file Do you have have any feed or folder with a title in a non latin alphabet ? Do you use an OpenReader server or are all your feeds accessed directly ? No to both. All my feeds are acc...

3.5.1 - old feed column width instability resurfaces

A while ago I updated my Vienna to be faced with an issue that compelled me to regress to an earlier edition: https://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=27053&p=140287#p140287 But recently I jumped from 3.1.6 to 3.5.0 and that particular nasty issue never bothered me since. Just 5 mi...

Re: 3.5.0 - persistent incorrect status bar message

No, my assumption in the post above is incorrect. For 2 consecutive days, the 'Queue (200)' status bar message showed, unchanged over a Vienna restart and multiple feed cycle updates. Today I only see the 'Refresh completed' message, despite allowing more than 1 refresh cycle to occur without readin...

The David Walsh feed is now OK, but the status bar messages have alternated between "refresh completed' and 'Queue (xyz) - refreshing subscriptions' Currently I see this: https://i.imgur.com/dcyE4Na.jpg The Vienna Activity Window shows nothing suspicious FWIW, I now think that when I manage to ...

^ Ah! I do apologise. Just now the first feed refresh cycle of the day has run and I was left with one feed error. Vienna showed this in the status bar https://i.imgur.com/kXy0wMu.jpg but told me through macOS Notifications that the update cycle had finished. The Refresh/Stop Refresh button showed t...

Re: 3.5.0 - persistent incorrect status bar message

Not sure if it's related, but when my feed refresh cycle started some 20 minutes ago, all went well apart from the fact that 2 of my feeds were showing the animated 'attempting to load' icon. The status bar now shows no message at all (where I was expecting to see a queue of 2). An expected time-out...

Re: 3.5.0 - persistent incorrect status bar message

No, I can't find any 'suspicious' Vienna related stuff in my Console. FWIW, I have some 280 feeds on an hourly refresh rate and often one or two are failing to load (not a Vienna issue). That has never caused Vienna (previous version) to show the 'Refresh completed' status message after an appropria...

Re: 3.5.0 - persistent incorrect status bar message

And I noticed the same phenomenon again just now, after all went well for a few days.

And it survives a new feed scan btw.

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what triggers this. Not a serious bug by any means, but puzzling nonetheless.

update now that I've noticed the issue reported above, I can't help but look at the status bar as soon as my feeds have been updated. But just now I've noticed that the issue has gone: the message reads 'Refresh completed' as it should. I'll be keeping an eye on this and report back in this topic w...

I've (finally) updated to 3.5.0 yesterday and find that the issues I'd reported for 3.2.0 are - AFAICT- resolved. Thank you!

Re: Vienna 3.2.0 selected folder - missing text background colour

JSH56, I'd like to think that when an app explicitly supports OS X 10.9, there should be no issues like the one under discussion. All features should work with all supported OS versions.
