Vienna 3.6.1 is our current recommendation

Post by barijaona »

[Updated on December 4th, 2020]
Vienna 3.6.1 is out.

All users are advised to use this version (runs from macOS 10.11 to macOS 11). Natively supports machines based on Apple Silicon processors.

OS X 10.9 or 10.10 users should use version 3.5.10 of Vienna

Latest "stable" release of Vienna can always be found at https://github.com/ViennaRSS/vienna-rss/releases/latest
All recent versions of Vienna are visible at https://github.com/ViennaRSS/vienna-rss/releases

If Vienna 3.5.6 crashes on startup, when 3.5.5 does not, this fix worked for me.

In Terminal:

Code: Select all

echo 'pragma main.user_version=21;' | sqlite3 ~/'Library/Application Support/Vienna/messages.db'
These crashes (or sometimes hangs) have happened on every Vienna update since 2.0.9. They may have to do with the size of my messages.db file (250k+ messages, 615MB). Incrementing main.user_version fixed the crash problem every time.

Well, 3.6.1 was the first update that gave me problems. After updating, it launched, but no windows appeared. I had to show the Main Window, but it's empty of any feeds.

Running macOS 10.15.7.

@ tut

Did you try the recently released 3.6.2 (which did fix that window issue for me on 10.15.7)?

Same crash-on-startup with 3.7.0. Fixed with:

Code: Select all

echo 'pragma main.user_version=22;' | sqlite3 "$HOME/Library/Application Support/Vienna/messages.db"
macOS 10.13.6 on MacPro5,1
