Vienna is a free, open source news reader that we like (we've written about it here
); it's not as full-featured as NetNewsWire but it's a pretty slick app. The Vienna Development Team is preparing to release version 2.2, which will feature a huge list of changes and improvements, including:
- A new UI (no more brushed metal!)
- Russian localization
- Improved drag-and-drop from Safari
- Unsubscribe/resubscribe command added to the File menu
- SQLite updated to 3.4.0
The full list of changes hasn't been released yet, but you can get a look at what we haven't mentioned here
. In the meantime, you can check out the 2.2 beta
. Just remember, it's a beta, so backup your stuff.
Vienna is free, universal and requires Mac OS 10.3.9 or later.
