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
Vienna is free, universal and requires Mac OS 10.3.9 or later.
